Event Details

Beginning Wednesday, May 21, and continuing Thursday May 22 and Friday, May 23, the annual Wellek Library Lectures will be delivered by Timothy Morton, the Rita Shea Guffey Chair in English at Rice University, on the topic of "Dark Ecology." All lectures at 4:00 PM in HG 1030.

Since 1981, the Critical Theory Institute has sponsored an annual lecture series, named in honor of René Wellek (Yale University), whose library of works in critical theory is housed in Langson Library at the University of California, Irvine.

Each year, we invite an internationally distinguished critical theorist to visit the campus to deliver a series of three lectures in which he or she develops his or her critical position and relates it to the contemporary theoretical scene.
