TUESDAY, May 12 // Hu Jun Lecture
3RD ANNUAL / MA in Critical Studies Symposium
The Walters Art Museum
Narratives of Modernity, Contemporaneity, and Desire is a symposium devoted to a consideration of important points in our cultural past and present, with the aim of better understanding critical discourse in the arts and, more generally, the world around us. How have artists, writers, and activists employed narrative strategies in creating particular effects, or achieving certain goals? And how, in the process, has their work contributed to or challenged notions of modernism, history, and humanity?
A series of 20-minute talks will be followed by a keynote lecture by the poet and actor David Yezzi, as well as a summary discussion of the symposium's theme.

POWER Speaker Series
Tuesday, May 12, 7-9 PM (free and open to the public)
Creative Alliance at The Patterson
3134 Eastern Ave, 21224
A conversation to discuss the development of Latin American female leaders in Southeast Baltimore, where 30% of the community is Hispanic. Maria Gabriela Aldana invites women of Hispanic descent with multiple identities and races, to speak about how we identify ourselves, or not, to obtain power. We will discuss opportunities, competition amongst ourselves and how we can support one another through unity. Workshop is FREE and childcare is available. Bring a dish to share, such as fruit, tamales, or vegetables. Conversation will be in Spanish with interpretation for English speakers available. Men and all races are welcome! Please register with Creative Alliance at 410-276-1651 or email email@example.com
The POWER Speaker Series addresses the concept and reality of "power” — that which impacts us all…all over the world. This 15-week investigation provides a uniquely civil, yet “aggressive” investigation addressing a myriad of power-related topics, issues and perspectives. Hosted by the MFA in Community Arts at MICA PLACE at 814 North Collington Avenue in East Baltimore, everyone is welcome to contribute as part of this inclusive set of discussions.
