Orozco Room, Alvin Johnson/J.M. Kaplan Hall 66 West 12th Street, Room A712, New York, NY 10011

The Department of Literary Studies presents a public lecture by Caroline Levine, Professor of the Humanities at Cornell University.  Professor Levine is the author of Forms:  Whole, Rhythm, Hierarchy, Network (Princeton Univ. Press, 2016) as well as The Serious Pleasures of Suspense and Provoking Democracy. The event is hosted by Associate Professor of Literature and Co-Chair of Literary Studies Carolyn Berman.

"Forms is a truly extraordinary book, a book of a generation. If this were only a work of theory, it would already be one of the best scholarly books I’ve read. But it is also, more importantly, a model of method. Caroline Levine . . . has drawn the map that will lead us out of the dead end facing literary studies today – the dead end of wanting to talk about the literary in relation to the social but not knowing how."--Amanda Claybaugh, Harvard University

This event is co-sponsored by the Literary Studies Department at Eugene Lang College and the Parsons School of Art & Design History & Theory
