How Can We Sing...in a Strange Land? In Search of Political Possibility

Knight Auditorium, Spurlock Museum 600 South Gregory Street Urbana

Event Description

Political culture in many parts of the world lives in the shadow of both fascism and the 1960s.  Yet we may have learned the wrong lessons from this history.  The possibilities of political struggle in the contemporary world depend on our capacities to re-imagine counter-cultural unities and to re-invent ways to sign the popular.  Perhaps we can start with Marvin Gaye's old question, "What's going on?"
