Lecture by Elizabeth S. Anker

Tuesday, February 19, 2019

On Tuesday, February 19th at 5:00pm in DeTamble Auditorium, Tribble Hall, Elizabeth S. Anker will give a talk on the ubiquitous presence of “paradox” in critical theory. Part of her new book project, Anker’s talk will explore what “paradox” allows and what it forecloses for political thought, and she will discuss new modes of theorizing political norms beyond paradox.

Elizabeth S. Anker is Associate Professor in the Department of English and Associate Member of the Law Faculty at Cornell University. She has published and taught in the areas of human rights and humanitarianism, comparative constitutional law, law and literature, law and development, postcolonial studies, critical race theory, feminist jurisprudence, animal rights, immigration law, and legal and political theory.
