Neil Roberts, Theory & Event

The journal Theory and Event recently published a symposium of essays on the killing of Florida teen Trayvon Martin earlier this year. The symposium brought together an array of contemporary theorists - Anna Marie Smith, Anne Norton, Michael Hanchard, Stephen H. Marshall, Ange-Marie Hancock, Mark Reinhardt, Christopher J. Lebron, and George Ciccariello-Maher - to demonstrate ongoingness of theorizing, the ways we are always to an extent in the middle of the events we endeavor to understand. Guest editor Neil Roberts joined us to talk about the symposium.
