Critical Discussion

MAWA provides a forum for critical dialogue, in part by offering critical reading and discussion groups on focused on specific topics. These have ranged from “big questions”, as exemplified by the “What is Art? Throwdown”, featuring presentation by three panelists from across the country, to in-depth analysis of specific texts, such as the reading group focusing on the recent work of cultural critic Jeanne Randolph. Critical reading and discussion groups are programmed on an ad hoc basis, and are offered free of charge or at nominal cost.

Each meeting will have a thematic focus and weblinks to readings. Come prepared, so that the conversation really “cooks”…. Goodness knows we need “heated” debate! Join us in the warm glow of the Legion as we grapple with texts and ideas.
