A Conversation Series, 2016/2017
In Fall 2016 TRG hosted two conversations in response to contemporary political events in the US & Europe. The first was on Neoliberalism with Camille Robcis & Russel Rickford and the second on Fascism with Enzo Traverso & Isabel Hull. Reading the work of Wendy Brown, Achille Mbembe, Hannah Arendt and Gilles Deleuze, we ask: what concepts–philosophical, theoretical, literary–do we inherit from radical leftist traditions?
