Filmmaker and video installation artist Isaac Julien is known for his exploration of racial and sexual identity and cultural displacement, including such films as Looking for Langston (1989), a poetic treatment of the Harlem Renaissance poet Langston Hughes. Julien’s multi-screen installations and accompanying photographic works explore fractured narratives of memory and desire, often uniting elements from dance, painting, sculpture, theater, and music.

Judith Butler is Maxine Elliot Professor in the Department of Comparative Literature and founding director of the Program in Critical Theory at UC Berkeley. Her work has been influential in a variety of disciplines including critical theory and gender studies. She has received many of the highest honors in the humanities, including the Andrew W. Mellon Distinguished Achievement Award.
