Glenn’s classes are a dose of much needed cognitive dissonance, where my habits of thought are shown the irreverence they deserve, and provide rich grist for strange new ways of thinking and living in the world. —Chad C.

I took many of Glenn’s classes while I was a student at the Won Institute.  They were some of the most valuable courses of my graduate experience. A class with Glenn doesn’t just feel like another academic transaction, it’s a human experience. He is a teacher who wants people to think for themselves, to transgress institutionalized ideologies, to question one’s own assumptions. Importantly for me, his classes are also fun. I was used to stuffy undergrad philosophy lectures. Glenn’s classes always consist of robust dialogue and creative source texts. I would often leave classes bustling with creative energy and new ideas. Highly recommend Incite Seminars!  —Michael Keane

The seminar I took with Gabriel Rockhill was incredible on so many levels. It freed me up to discuss French theory outside of the super competitive environment of my Ph.D. program. The really interesting mixture of people was so unusual. The whole experience was genuinely liberating.

Glenn’s insight brings new light to old themes. His teaching style is akin to performance art. —Larry Denenberg

I have taken several classes at the Won Institute and two Incite Seminars with Glenn Wallis.  Without exception, they were stimulating, provocative, engaging, and fun. Interacting with interesting people from a wide variety of backgrounds and experiences was immensely rewarding.  Glenn is a gifted teacher who knows how to keep the creative and intellectual juices flowing. If you are interested in in-depth explorations of the human experience, Incite Seminars is for you! —Alan S.
