Homi Bhabha: The Humanities and the Anxiety of Violence Beyond the Ghetto
The Nikos Stangos Memorial Lecture
The Department of History of Art at UCL is convening the
6th Nikos Stangos Memorial Lecture. The lecture has been established in
memory of Nikos Stangos who
was one of the directors and senior commissioning editors for Thames
and Hudson publishers. He was probably the most important art editor
of the late 20th century who was responsible for facilitating some of
the most ground breaking art books of our generation. Nikos was a
published poet and started his career in London as a poetry editor for
Penguin. He was a philosophy graduate from Harvard and collector and
commentator on contemporary art. He died in 2003.
This year's lecture is entitled "The Humanities and the Anxiety of Violence"
and is to be delivered by Professor Homi Bhabha (Harvard University)
This lecture has been generously supported by Thames & Hudson.
