This collection primarily comprises audio and video recordings of selected events held at the Critical Theory Institute (CTI)
at the University of California, Irvine (UCI). Events include the Irvine Lectures in Critical Theory and the Wellek Library
Lectures, as well as other lectures, conferences, and discussion sessions organized by CTI. The collection also contains several
lectures given off campus by UCI faculty associated with CTI.
The Critical Theory Institute (CTI) is an interdisciplinary, collaborative research group at the University of California,
Irvine (UCI), comprising 15 to 20 active members from various UCI departments in the humanities and social sciences. CTI began
in the early 1980s as an informal reading group and since 1987 has operated as an organized research unit. CTI is closely
allied with UCI's curricular program in critical theory.
