Session Information

Description: What is ideology critique? How might it be preferable to other ways of addressing the present or the past? Speakers discuss the persistence of ideology critique, including modes of engaged cultural analysis that are attentive to the problems of capitalism, modes of production, the affective and speculative forms therein, and the political contexts of thinking and writing.
