WOOSTER, Ohio — Patricia Clough, professor of sociology, women’s studies, and intercultural studies at the Graduate Center and Queens College of the City University of New York, will present "The New Aesthetic: Autobiography and Sociality” on Thursday, April 26, at The College of Wooster’s annual Stieglitz Memorial Lecture. The talk, which is free and open to the public, will begin at 7 p.m. in the Lean Lecture Room of Wishart Hall (303 E. University St.).
Clough’s work has drawn on theoretical traditions concerned with technology, affect, unconscious processes, timespace and political economy. Her books include Feminist Thought, and The End(s) of Ethnography. She is editor of The Affective Turn: Theorizing the Social and, with Craig Willse, Beyond Biopolitics: Essays on the Governance of Life and Death. She is currently working on Ecstatic Corona, an ethnographic historical research and experimental writing project about where she grew up in Queens, New York.
The Stieglitz Memorial Lecture was founded by Dr. and Mrs. Lewis N. Stieglitz of Concord, N.H., as a tribute to their son, Martin, a Wooster student who was majoring in sociology when he lost his life in an off-campus house fire on Feb. 11, 1989. The Stieglitz Memorial Fund, the Department of Sociology and Anthropology and Cultural Events Committee co-sponsor the lecture series, which brings a well-known social scientist to campus each academic year to deliver a public presentation and to visit classes.
