InterCcECT convenes a Chicago circle of readers, writers, thinkers, and makers working in and beyond the university, through and around the commitment to theory. “Theory” we encompass in its critical, experimental, philosophical, aesthetic, political, literary, and psychoanalytic forms.
InterCcECT coordinates the union of sets in Chicago via reading groups, workshops, performances, conferences, seminars, studios, parties, and other platforms.
