Theorizing @ Penn

Theorizing

An experimental forum for thinking through literature, philosophy, and culture beyond disciplinary boundaries.
Founded and organized by students at the University of Pennsylvania since 1996, Theorizing is a non-profit lecture series. The program is coordinated by graduate students in the Program in Comparative Literature and Literary Theory.

Our coordinators for 2015-2016 are Maria Pape and Tim Chandler.

Our series is made possible by the generous support of the Program in Comparative Literature and Literary Theory and our many generous departmental and institutional co-sponsors.
