Presented by the NYU Center for the Study of Gender and Sexuality. Co-sponsored by the Asian/Pacific/American Institute at NYU.

This round table places in conversation three recently published monographs: Kandice Chuh’s (CUNY Graduate Center) The Difference Aesthetics Makes: On the Humanities “After Man” (Duke University Press, 2019), Allan deSouza’s (University of California, Berkeley) How Art Can Be Thought: A Handbook for Change (Duke University Press, 2018), and Gayatri Gopinath’s (NYU Department of Social  and Cultural Analysis) Unruly Visions: The Aesthetic Practices of Queer Diaspora (Duke University Press, 2018). The scholars discuss how their work approaches questions of aesthetics, visuality, and difference, and what it means to decolonize the practice of making, displaying, thinking, and writing about art. Moderated by A/P/A Institute at NYU Visiting Scholar Alpesh Kantilal Patel (Florida International University).

No registration required.
