Visiting Scholars


Visits by international scholars to the UC Berkeley campus provide a nexus between the Consortium’s engagement with scholars internationally and the faculty and graduate students of the Program in Critical Theory at Berkeley, as well as the community at large. The visits of up to two weeks include public lectures and seminars at UC Berkeley and other public educational institutions in the region. The Consortium invites scholars and artists from the Global South who are engaged in public life and work on matters of shared public concern.
