The Radicalism of Possibility: In Remembrance of Arif Dirlik

This one-day symposium brings leading scholars and activists in various disciplines and arenas of our contemporary academic and broader world to commemorate and celebrate the contributions of Arif Dirlik (1940 - December 1, 2017) to thought, action, and critique. Organized by a group of former colleagues and students from Duke University and elsewhere, this event examines the theoretical and pedagogical frameworks we have brought to critical studies of our world and considers their resonance for the future in the midst of a changing globe.
