UPDATE: Speculative September NYC
Speculative Medievalisms 2: A Laboratory-Atelier, to be held at the Martin E. Segal Theatre Center at The Graduate Center, CUNY on Friday, September 16th, is only TWO WEEKS away and we now have full details on all of the Speculative Realist- and Object Oriented Ontology-related events that will be happening in New York City leading up to and just after our event, which we like to think of as a serendipitous collision, or mash-up, or drive-by encounter, between the premodernist and more modernist wings, or arms, or legs, or hives, of the SR/OOO crowd.
