This Tuesday author/editor/critical brainiac Cary Wolfe stages a talk we guarantee won’t feel like repeat information. Check out “The Biopolitics of Nonhuman Bodies” at MICA’s Falvey Hall at 7 p.m. to gain strange insight into your shifting concept of self and world, via Wolfe’s lenses of “bioethics, cognitive science, animal ethics, gender, and disability.” The event is free and open to the (open-minded) public. Wolfe, well-known for his work in American culture, literary theory and criticism, and animal studies, is general editor of the Posthumanities Series (University of Minnesota Press). His most recent book: Before the Law: Humans and Other Animals in a Biopolitical Frame (Chicago: University of Chicago Press) published this year.

Tuesday’s lecture marks the first public event in MICA’s new one-year M.A. program in Critical Studies. The Fall colloquium theme is Human/Animal, and Cary Wolfe’s ideas are discussed and debated here.
