TALK ON INTERDISCIPLINARY FIELDS
Williamstown, 4:15 p.m.
Roderick Ferguson, professor of African American Studies and Gender and Women’s Studies at the University of Illinois, Chicago), will speak at Williams College in Griffin Hall, room 3. It is free and open to the public. Ferguson’s talk will address interdisciplinary fields as occupying a contradictory history within the academy—as both the critics of the institution and its supplicants. Ferguson asks what conditions are necessary for increasing the critical possibilities of interdisciplinary fields.

'CLOTH AND COLONIALISM'
Williamstown, 5:30 p.m.
Victoria Rovine, a Fellow in the Clark Art Institute’s Research and Academic Program, presents the free lecture “Cloth and Colonialism: France, French West Africa, and the Construction of Cultures” in the Michael Conforti Pavilion. Cloth’s soft, pliable nature makes it an improbable vehicle for the assertion of power, yet it played a singular role in the history of French colonial West Africa. Rovine’s lecture explores how French authorities sought to use cloth to control and characterize West African cultures.
