Acclaimed scholar and poet Fred Moten, Associate Professor of English at Duke University, will give the opening Keynote Address for Caesura, a series of events in the James Gallery which will invite artists and scholars as well as the public to reflect on a research question or methodology that is of mutual concern. Moten is the author of In the Break: The Aesthetics of the Black Radical Tradition (Minnesota 2003), which re-theorizes black aesthetics from an aural rather than visual stance, and the acclaimed poetry collection B Jenkins (Duke University Press, 2010).
