The Humanities on the Edge lecture series continues with a 5:30 p.m. Oct. 29 presentation by Zakiyyah Iman Jackson. The talk, which is in the Sheldon Museum of Art, is free and open to the public.
The talk, “The Blackness of Space Between Matter and Meaning,” is free and open to the public.
Jackson is an assistant professor of English at George Mason University. Her research draws upon queer studies, black feminism and African philosophy. The talk will map new ontologies within the frameworks of feminist new materialism and post-humanism.
Now in its sixth year, Humanities on the Edge is a campus lecture series for theoretical research in the humanities. The series was launched in 2010, the work of two UNL associate professors of English — Marco Abel and Roland Vegso, who wanted to form an intellectual community on campus across disciplinary lines.
The theme this year is “Posthuman Futures.”
