Revolution and Contemporary Forms of Critique

Toward « Revolution 13/13 »

*  *  *

Published on Monday, May 29, 2017 by Anastasia Giardinelli

Summary

This colloquium will constitute a prolegomenon to the seminar series “Revolution 13/13” that will run at the Columbia Center for Contemporary Critical Thought (and to the reading group that will be organized at the Columbia Global Centers in Paris) during the academic year 2017-2018. The goal will be to begin to engage a multidisciplinary and polyphonic conversation at the intersection of philosophy, of political science and law, of legal history and the social sciences and humanities, on the concept and on the practices of revolution and social change, or more broadly on the different forms that critique and political resistance can take and have taken in the contemporary world.

Presentation 

This colloquium will constitute a prolegomenon to the seminar series “Revolution 13/13” that will run at the Columbia Center for Contemporary Critical Thought (and to the reading group that will be organized at the Columbia Global Centers in Paris) during the academic year 2017-2018. The goal will be to begin to engage a multidisciplinary and polyphonic conversation at the intersection of philosophy, of political science and law, of legal history and the social sciences and humanities, on the concept and on the practices of revolution and social change, or more broadly on the different forms that critique and political resistance can take and have taken in the contemporary world (from hunger strikes to insurgencies, disobedience, and other forms of resistance at Occupy Wall Street, during the Arab Spring, at the Dakota Access Pipeline, with #BlackLivesMatter or Anonymous). In large part, this colloquium will be a massive brainstorming and occupation of its own.
