I am thrilled to announce that this year I am convening a Critical Theory Working Group here at U.C. Berkeley on the subject of "Animal Futures." Working Group meetings will take the form of seminars - 6 over the course of the year - led by the likes of Mel Chen, Donna Jones, Tobias Menely, Charis Thompson, Zakiyyah Iman Jackson and Alexander Weheliye. The inaugural session - in which I'll present my work on "New Naturalisms" - is on September 24th. For more information, visit the Program in Critical Theory's website.
