1st Annual LLC Graduate Student Conference: Rethinking Intellectual Activism (4/12)

Rethinking Intellectual Activism

We invite you to join us as we explore the potential meanings and practical implications of “intellectual activism,” which, as a political praxis of knowledge production, validation, and distribution, can take many different forms. By focusing on the notion of “intellectual activism,” the conference aims to open a critical discursive space to question and re-imagine the role of the university in maintaining and/or disrupting the systems and operations of power within and through which the institution functions.

Keynote Speaker for the conference is Language, Literacy and Culture PhD program alumna, Dr. Kaye Wise Whitehead, Assistant Professor, Department of Communication, Loyola University; Baltimore, Maryland. Visit here for more information: kayewisewhitehead.com
