Essayist, photographer, and art historian Teju Cole will join the communities of the University for a public conversation about the ways in which images and image-making inform and propel our contemporary discourse about the intersections of artistic practice and civic responsibility. Followed by a Q&A with the audience.

Teju Cole was born in the US in 1975 and raised in Nigeria. He is the author of two works of fiction: Every Day Is for the Thief, which was named a Book of the Year by The New York Times; and Open City, which won the PEN/Hemingway Award. His most recent books are the critically acclaimed essay collection Known and Strange Things and the synthesis of lyric and photography, Blind Spot. He is Distinguished Writer in Residence at Bard College and the photography critic for The New York Times Magazine.
