Judith Butler’s Lecture info.

As part of the upcoming conference “Becomings, Misplacements, Departures: Butler and Whitehead as Catalysts for Contemporary Thought,” organized by the Whitehead Reseach Project (see their website http://whiteheadresearch.org ), and partly supported by a grant from the Bradshaw fund of the Humanities Center of the School of Arts and Humanities, world-renowned philosopher and critic Judith Butler will hold a special session for SAH students.

This seminar will take place 2:00-4:30pm in Albrecht Auditorium on Thursday, December 3. Professor Butler will read some pages from her book Giving an Account of Oneself (Fordham, 2005), and then answer questions and engage in dialogue about the book and the issues it engages.

All currently enrolled students in Arts and Humanities are welcome to attend this seminar (and the conference, which begins after the seminar).

  1. Bummer! I’ll be at work. Let me know how it goes…

  2. I didn’t make it either (apparently obligation to class > the desire to see Judith Butler). Did you end up going, Tlali? Or anyone else for that matter? I’m so curious about how this person, writer of such brilliant, incomprehensible sentences, speaks in front of real human beings!
