Counting DH Scholarship for Tenure
In a separate symposium, the same three panelists will discuss how their departments and universities approach digital humanities and tenure. This symposium—primarily of interest to UWM department chairs, administrators, and assistant professors— is being held at 12 noon, also on Monday, October 20 in the Digital Humanities Lab.

Wendy Brown image
In this lecture, noted political and cultural theorist Wendy Brown (Political Science, UC-Berkeley) examines the damaging effects of neoliberal reason on democratic principles and ideals.

She argues that the value and values of democracy are challenged today not merely by the unrestrained power of finance capital and large corporations, or by extreme and growing economic inequality. Rather, they are undermined by an economic form of reason and governance that is undoing the constituent terms of democracy—freedom, equality, citizenship, rights, and above all, popular sovereignty.

C21 Annual Report Cover
Did you miss any C21 events last year? Or, if you were in attendance, would you like to relive some of those most engaging moments, such as Beth Stephens’ “ecosexual love story” at the Anthropocene Feminism conference, Ian Baucom’s ruminations on postcolonial method and Anthropocene time, or Mel Chen’s mediated appearance at MIGC?

Did you know about our participation in a major grant from the Mellon Foundation to support international, collaborative humanities research; our two new Transdisciplinary Challenge research projects; or director Richard Grusin’s emissarial visits to Chinese universities?

Did you know we published another collection of essays with Indiana University Press—Making Place: Space and Embodiment in the City—and have a new book series coming out with the University of Minnesota Press?

You can read about these, and more, in our 2013-14 annual report, now available online (PDF) and in print. If you are on our mailing list, you should be receiving a copy in the mail. Otherwise, printed annual reports are available in our main office, Curtin 929.
