This event is taking place at the Munk School, 1 Devonshire Place, Seminar Room 108, North House, Toronto, Ontario.

Acclaimed scholars and cultural critics Professor Florence Dore (English Department, University of North Carolina) and Professor Eric Lott (American Studies, City University of New York) joined us for a discussion of music, text and method. What constitutes a vernacular archive and how does one approach it as a historian, as a critic, and as a researcher? What is the relationship between theory, method and object and how does each inform the other in the practices of critical engagement? Graduate students shared their projects, questions, and provocations in this graduate workshops.
