The Long 2020: Megan Craig and Levi Bryant
Apr 2, 2021 @ 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm
Join us for a conversation with Megan Craig (Stony Brook University) and Levi Bryant (Collin College) as part of our Spring series, The Long 2020. Megan Craig’s talk will center on our experience of time during the pandemic, drawing on Henri Bergson’s notion of duree. Levi Bryant’s talk will also have a temporal dimension, focusing on the epistemological conditions of possibility for the pandemic and the infrastructural breakdowns it has caused (or exposed).
