The Baker-Nord Center's fall programming explores the concept of 'speculation'. Increasingly, daily life propels us into situations that involve navigating risk, adaption, and precarity. Speculation and by extension 'the speculative' have encouraged scholars and artists to ask questions about the status quo, the overlooked and taken for granted, archival silences and the boundaries of knowledge production. Invited guests and the CWRU community will explore this theme with a focus on imagining the possibilities that it enables.
