We’re excited to announce that the fall Tyrone Maurice Adderley lecture featuring Dr. Cornel West will take place on Thursday, November 21 at 6:00pm in the Tower Auditorium. In preparation for his visit and in service to MassArt’s Anti-Racism Dialogues, the JET office is offering Cornel West Reading Groups (CWRG) for students and invite you to join us.
Groups will meet twice to discuss a collection of essays by Dr. West among others and will be led by trained student facilitators. Two themes will be discussed through these readings: Art & Criticism and Leadership. It’s recommended that participants attend both sessions, but is not required. The selected readings for both sessions can be found in the links provided below. Light refreshments will be provided.
