The 20th and 21st Century Workshop (C20/21), sponsored by the Council on Advanced Studies, provides a space for graduate students and faculty from any division or department at the University of Chicago to discuss and present works-in-progress that engage with aesthetic objects or social and theoretical questions within any context from the previous century to the present.  C20/21 launched in fall 2015 as a merger of the previous Post-1945 and Modernisms Workshops.

In the 2016-17 academic year, C20/21 is co-coordinated by Nell Pach and Jean-Thomas Tremblay and sponsored by Professors Rachel Galvin (English), Patrick Jagoda (English), and Alison James (RLL).

To help facilitate conversations across the disciplinary breadth we cover, each quarter collects its workshop papers under a common theme.  The theme for Autumn 2016 is “Ecology, Geography, Politics.”
