Avani Tandon Vieira, Lauryn Anderson and colleague Anna Corrigan present ‘activist/aesthetics’, June 2nd 2023

Avani Tandon Vieira (4th year PhD student) and Lauryn Anderson (2nd Year PhD student) have organised, along with their colleague Anna Corrigan in the Centre for Latin America Studies, the one day hybrid conference ‘activist/aesthetics’, to take place online and in Cambridge on June 2.
The conference, which will bring together scholars, artists, practitioners and activists to reflect on the ‘aesthetic’ dimensions of political action, builds upon the group’s pre-existing reading group of the same name which has run in Cambridge since 2021.
A keynote reading and discussion with contemporary poet Bhanu Kapil (winner of the 2020 T.S. Eliot Prize and Windham-Campbell Literature Prize) and Heba Hayek (winner of the 2022 Palestine Book Awards and author of a 2021 Book of the Year by The White Review) will follow the day’s conference.
