Anne McClintock rescheduled for Friday, 18 November!

Dear All: In solidarity with the student strikes planned for Thursday, 17 November, Professor Anne McClintock’s lecture has been rescheduled to NOON on Friday, 18 November in Room 6496 — please help spread the word, and hope to see you Friday! Paranoid Empire: Perpetual War and the Twilight of US Power

Friday, November 18, 12pm, Room 6496

Professor Anne McClintock will be exploring what kind of overt U.S. empire emerged in the aftermath of 9/11, engaging notions such as paranoia and perpetual war, torture and the crisis of violence and the visible, imperial déjà vu and the empire of drones in the twilight of U.S. imperial power. McClintock will be exploring the concept of imperial deja vu through the unquiet dead of Hiroshima as the first “ground zero,” and the ubiquitous invocation of “Indian Country” in the “War on Terror.”
