Fredric Jameson, the esteemed literary theorist and critic (as well as a man whose books have appeared on this blog many times), will be giving the 2011-2012 Avenali Lecture this Tuesday night (February 28) at 6pm at the Chevron Auditorium in the International House. This lecture is titled “The Aesthetics of Singularity.” To commorate leap day, a follow up panel discussion with Fredric Jameson, Whitney Davis, Martin Jay, Colleen Lye, and Robert Kaufman will take place Wednesday (February 29) from 12 to 2pm in the Maude Fife Room, 315 Wheeler Hall–and to think this day didn’t even exist a year ago. These events are sponsered by the the Doreen B. Townsend Center for the Humanities at UC Berkeley and are made possible thanks to the generous gift of Peter and Joan Avenali.
