The Wellek Library Lectures at UCI

Since 1981, the UCI School of Humanities / Critical Theory has sponsored an annual lecture series, named in honor of René Wellek (Yale University), whose library of works in critical theory is housed in the Langson Library Special Collections at the University of California, Irvine. Each year, we invite an internationally distinguished critical theorist to visit campus and deliver a series of three lectures that develops their critical position and relates it to the contemporary theoretical scene. Learn more about the Wellek Library Lectures.
