September 13th, 2012

The first Lectures in Criticism talk this year is soon, at an unusual time, and at an unusual venue.  Please take note!

Nestor Garcia Canclini will be speaking at the Museum of Fine Arts at 6:30 pm on Thursday, September 13.  The title of his talk is “Creatividad precaria: los jovenes en una cultura postindustial / Precarious Creativity:  Youth in a Post-industrial Culture.”  Enter the museum, 465 Huntington Avenue, at the Huntington Street entrance to receive a free ticket for the event.  A reception will follow the lecture.

The event was scheduled a little later than usual so that those attending the English department reception at 4:30 pm that day could also attend the lecture.  Note to anyone who carpools audience members to the MFA:  Lectures in Criticism will reimburse your parking fees so save your receipt.

The Museum of Fine Arts stays open until 9:45 pm that evening if you want to stay on and appreciate the art.  There are three different dining options available at the museum.  See www.mfa.org for more information.
