Associate Professor Rebekah Modrak will give a talk on contemporary uses and mis-uses of the terms community,” craft,” and labor” at the School of Art + Design / University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign. 

The talk will present her creative interventions and publications that challenge uncritical misconceptions that labor” and community” are consumable experiences, and that craft” is the domain of the leisure class. As part of her visit, Professor Modrak will hold a brown-bag lunch with graduate students.

Hosted by the Youth in the Creative Cities Research Cluster, the talk is supported by the Illinois Program for Research in the Humanities and will be held on Monday, May 2, 2016, 5pm in the School of Art + Design Building.
