Kritik welcomes comments on posts; these should include the full name or moniker of the author as a signature. Commentators are asked to avoid personal remarks, debating arguments without remarking on the individuals who make them. We reserve the right to remove ad hominem attacks or other abusive commentary. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com with any questions.
Kritik welcomes submissions for posts on a broad range of cultural and political topics. Email the Director of the Unit for Criticism, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Welcome to Kritik, a public forum on theory, culture, and politics hosted by the Unit for Criticism and Interpretive Theory at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Since 1981, the Unit for Criticism has been at the forefront of U.S. debates in critical theory and cultural studies.
With this blog, we hope to take these activities into a new public realm. While some of the posts and debate hosted here will refer to “local” events, this blog is intended to engage discussion beyond the University of Illinois community.
