What is Critical Theory?
About the Program
Critical theory involves the attempt to better understand power, conflict and crisis, and to achieve change, emancipation, or distance from the beliefs, presuppositions, forces, forms, conventions, conditions, assemblages, and institutions of human life.
Andrew W. Mellon Project
Northwestern, together with the University of California at Berkeley, houses the International Consortium of Critical Theory Programs, an Andrew W. Mellon Foundation-funded initiative to document, connect, and support the various programs and projects that now represent critical theory across the globe. A major component of Northwestern’s contribution to the Consortium is the Critical Theory in the Global South project, which exists to develop new critical theory curricula integrating intellectual traditions from the Global South.
