Maggie Nelson Lecture and Visit

March 08, 2018

Maggie Nelson, acclaimed author of Bluets and The Argonauts, comes to PNCA March 16 to give a talk on her writing and research. This lecture is part of the MA in Critical Studies program lecture series, which seeks out diverse writers and thinkers to involve the community in critically engaging topics. 

Maggie Nelson is a writer forging a new mode of nonfiction that transcends the divide between the personal and the intellectual and renders pressing issues of our time into portraits of day-to-day lived experience. Nelson’s five book-length works of nonfiction are grounded in experiences and topics with which she is struggling. She invites the reader into her process of thinking through and making sense of her unique concerns with the help of feminist and queer theory, cultural and art criticism, philosophy and psychology.
