Art & Art History
ASSEMBLY HALL III
400 S. Peoria St.
ASSEMBLY HALL is a reading group that offers provocative discussions on topics related to the exhibitions Chronicle of a Fall and A Species of Theft. This virtual program series openly invites participants to critically engage and reflect on contemporary thought in memoir, biography, and cultural studies. Authors include Dionne Brand, Robert Nichols, Edouard Glissant, and others.
In this final meeting of Assembly Hall, we will be considering questions of literary and poetic form and how such approaches enable or limit accounts of diasporic migration, as well as the decades-long role the US has played in exacerbating such migrations.
Facilitated by Artie Foster, Exhibition Planning Assistant.
