2018 Summer Session of the School of Criticism and Theory

The School of Criticism and Theory (SCT) was founded in 1976 by a group of leading literary scholars in the conviction that an understanding of theory is fundamental to humanistic studies. Today, in an unparalleled six-week summer campus experience, the SCT offers faculty members and advanced graduate students in the humanities and social sciences a chance to work with preeminent figures in critical thought— exploring debates in and across literary studies, political theory, history, philosophy, art, and anthropology; examining the role of ideological and cultural movements; and reassessing theoretical approaches that have emerged over the last fifty years. Cornell also offers participants the resources of one of the great research libraries in the United States.
