“Interpreting Non-Violence” will be the theme of the 2016 Tanner Lectures on Human Values, which will be delivered by Judith Butler, a noted philosopher and gender theorist.
Her first talk — “Why Preserve the Life of the Other?” — will be on Wednesday, March 30, at 5 p.m. The second, “Legal Violence: An Ethical and Political Critique” takes place March 31 at 5:30 p.m. Both talks will be held in the Whitney Humanities Center (WHC) auditorium, 53 Wall St. Karuna Mantena, associate professor of political science, will introduce Butler on Wednesday and deliver a response after her second lecture. Butler will be joined by Yale scholars Paul North, professor of Germanic language and literature, and Jason Stanley, the Urowsky Professor of Philosophy, for further discussion on Friday, April 1, at 10:30 a.m. at the WHC.
Full details here. I have no details, but these lectures are usually recorded and made available online after the event. I’ll share a link if/when I see it.
