Which one of these social theorists and philosophers have I not heard speak?

Update: the answer is Giorgio Agamben. He was supposed to be at a conference I attended, but cancelled, and I’ve never had another chance.

There is a Facebook meme at the moment, where people list several bands or singers, all but one of which they have seen perform live. But I like Simon Glendinning’s version. So, which one of these social theorists and philosophers have I not heard speak?

  1. Giorgio Agamben
  2. Alain Badiou
  3. Etienne Balibar
  4. Zygmunt Bauman
  5. Seyla Benhabib
  6. Manuel Castells
  7. Wendy Brown
  8. Judith Butler
  9. Jacques Derrida
  10. Umberto Eco
  11. Nancy Fraser
  12. Jürgen Habermas
  13. Stuart Hall
  14. Luce Irigaray
  15. Naomi Klein
  16. Jacques Rancière
  17. Richard Rorty
  18. Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak
  19. Peter Sloterdijk

  3. Why are you leaving Jameson off your list, Stuart? I bet you’ve heard him speak. (Oh, and I’ll guess Eco.)
