The second cohort of Humanities Research Institute’s Interseminars Initiative, funded by a Mellon Foundation grant, is ready to present their speaker series for this academic year. The theme of this cohort’s work is “Improvise and Intervene,” and includes the study of “different genealogies of improvisation and intervention through reading, listening, and watching, while engaging in weekly improvisatory exercises and responses drawn from surrealism, documentary and neorealism, speculative fiction, theater, music, and other sources.”

On October 18th at 7:30 p.m., Damon Locks of Black Monument Ensemble and University of Chicago lecturer Tara Aisha Willis will present “Step step step: improvisation, sound, and movement” at Levis Faculty Center room 300. The performance is free and open to the public.
