Professor Barbara Will, Summer Symposium at Critical Theory and the Arts

​A recently established tradition at CTA is our Summer Symposium with Barbara Will, Associate Dean of the Arts and Humanities at Dartmouth College, A. and R. Newbury Professor of English. Barbara Will is the author of several important studies on Gertrude Stein and is currently researching the life of Lou Andreas Salomé.

Last summer, Barbara Will, along with the distinguished professor of comparative literature, Jean-Michel Rabaté (University of Pennsylvania) and Jamieson Webster (psychoanalyst, New School) joined the faculty and students at Critical Theory and the Arts to discuss Theordor W. Adorno’s and Alain Badiou’s writings on Samuel Beckett. This year our topic is still a big secret, even to us; but we’ll be announcing it soon. We’re all looking forward to it.
