News: Institute of Comparative Modernities grant

A couple months ago, a group of us submitted an application for a grant to start an interdisciplinary reading group called "Reading Sensibly: Rancière and the Politics of the Sensible". The group would be based on the way that the senses, generally, interacts with political movements. Some members are interested in the way that film, art, graffiti, poetry can reflect and fuel political movements. My own interest is how perceptual systems interact with these forms of media and how that influences public social action.
