SIDEBAR: Patrick Jagoda and Thenmozhi Soundararajan

 May 08, 2018, 1:00 PM – 3:00 PM
 Gray Center for Arts and Inquiry

Gray Center Lab at Midway Studios, 929 E. 60th St.

SIDEBAR welcomes Gray Center Mellon Collaborative Fellows Patrick Jagoda (University of Chicago Department of English) and Thenmozhi Soundararajan (activist, transmedia artist and theorist) in conversation about their fellowship project, Imagining Futures.

Along with their other collaborator, Melissa Gilliam (University of Chicago Medicine), Jagoda and Soundararajan used Imagining Futures as an opportunity to consider various ways we might be able to look at futurism as a way to build community and power. As part of their project, a survey is being conducted that seeks "to harness our greatest weapons against this pessimism: our imagination." Click here if you'd like to participate:

SIDEBAR is an ongoing conversation series organized by the Gray Center. Join us at 6:00pm for food and drinks as we settle into an evening of productive engagement with our invited guests.
