Anne Anlin Cheng, Professor of English, Princeton University, will present a talk entitled "Ornamentalism, Aesthetic Being” on Thursday, April 23, 2015 at 5:30 pm in the Brown/RISD Hillel, 80 Brown Street, 2nd floor. This talk will explore the meeting of violence and beauty and ask what kind of life subsists as broken or superfluous things. Through a series of readings of literary, legal, and visual texts, her talk will isolate instances of dark, miraculous moments when ornaments become flesh.
