Thinking with Balibar
(Day 2 of 2)

Columbia University, Buell Hall - 515 West 116 Street, East Gallery
2pm, $0

This conference on “Thinking with Balibar” will explore the influence of Etienne Balibar's work, not paying tribute to Étienne Balibar per se, but showing how certain concepts, arguments, and methods that he applies in his work can be and are being used by scholars in different fields working on crucial issues of our time. The conference will thus be inspired by his work instead of being on is work. It marks the third and last year of Etienne's stint as a visiting professor at Columbia in the Institute for Comparative Literature and Society, and he will also speak at the conference. This conference follows and builds on a one-day workshop called "Pourquoi Balibar" that was organized in Paris on January 17, 2014 by the Collège International de Philosophie (Étienne Balibar is a member of its Scientific Board) after he published several important books in recent years – Violence et civilité and La Proposition de l'égaliberté in 2011 (the latter now translated asEqualiberty: Political Essays), Citoyen sujet et autres essais d'anthropologie philosophique in 2011, and Saeculum: culture, religion, idéologie in 2011 Continue Reading »
