About the MA in Critical Theory and Creative Research
CT+CR seeks to help forge a discipline that does for the new relations obtaining between words, images, and objects what the field of rhetoric accomplished for language; to unify the major strands of critical theory, revivifying it as a powerful tool of criticism and critique; and to create new ways of understanding, situating, and configuring knowledge and research in the new century. If you would like to know more, please contact Founding Co-chairs Anne-Marie Oliver (T 503 236 0345; [email protected]) and Barry Sanders (T 626 826 2222; [email protected])  

About the Reed College Art Department
The Art Department at  Reed includes both studio art and art history, complementary and interrelated disciplines with a shared interest in the art object and its historical and theoretical contexts.  The two branches of the department are united philosophically and, to an extent rare among liberal arts institutions, in actual practice.
