communities and institutions, and linking service-learning and multimedia

CRAFT CRITIQUE CULTURE is an interdisciplinary conference focusing on the

imbrication of affect and empire and will explore the ways in which
affect blurs the lines between presence, absence, past, present, future,
coloniality, postcoloniality and other liminal or ephemeral textual and
identity positions within the increasingly globalized experience of our
present moment.
