Meet your Critical/Cultural Scholars at ASU

“Meet Your Critical/Cultural Scholars at ASU” is a roundtable featuring Heather Curry, Marivel Danielson, and Gregory Sale.

This brown-bag roundtable is open to all graduate students, instructors, and faculty from any unit with critical/cultural tendencies. Panelists will offer opening remarks about their work, followed by a question-and-answer and discussion session.

Heather CurryHeather Curry is an Assistant Professor in the College of Integrative Sciences and Arts at the Downtown Phoenix campus. Her work focuses on urban place, with a particular attunement to economic and affiliative precarity as central concerns for communicative systems. She examines urban phenomena, such as visible homelessness, lightrail expansion, and “defensive” architecture, for what they may reveal about more deeply held concepts of community and city.

Marivel DanielsonMarivel Danielson is an Associate Professor in the School of Transborder Studies at the Tempe Campus. Her areas of research interest are Chicana/Latina literature, sexuality, gender, performance, and race/border/diaspora theory. She is the author of the book Homecoming Queers: Desire and Difference in Chicana Latina Cultural Production and has directed stage performances such as CLOCK, No Disclaimers, Amor y Revolución, and Greetings from a Queer Señorita.

Gregory SaleGregory Sale is an Artist and Assistant Professor of Intermedia and Public Practice in the School of Art at the Tempe campus. He has produced long-term large-scale projects bringing together disparate constituencies of the criminal justice system. Working nationally, his projects organize frameworks for individuals directly affected by the system, connecting them with communities and initiating discourse around charged social problems.
