The Brexit Crisis: A Verso Report – free ebook

9781786632340-max_221-af538095fd46b9d056b783f5ba58711cThe Brexit Crisis: A Verso Report – free ebook

‘Let’s Take Back Control’ was the slogan that won the UK’s EU Referendum. But what did those words mean to campaigners and voters? Control of what was being wrested from whom and why? And in whose interest was this done?

The Brexit Crisis gathers together some of the most insightful and provocative reactions to this moment, from the UK and abroad, examining what happened on the 23 June and what this might mean for the UK and the EU as a whole. It looks at the ruptures, false promises and ingrained racism revealed during the campaign and afterwards. As the UK heads towards the exit, what is to be done?

Authors include: Étienne Balibar, William Davies, Akwugo Emejulu, John R. Gillingham, Peter Hallward, Laleh Khalili, Stathis Kouvelakis, Sam Kriss, Rebecca Omonira-Oyekanmi, Lara Pawson, Wail Qasim, Salvage Editors, Wolfgang Streeck, Antonis Vradis

Michel Foucault: Discourse Theory and the Archive (2016)

Michel Foucault: Discourse Theory and the Archive conference in Göttingen

Foucault News

Michel Foucault: Discourse Theory and the Archive
Convention Center at the Historical Observatory; Geismar Landstraße 11, 37083 Göttingen
16 July 2016

See also this link.

This year marks not only Michel Foucault’s 90th birthday, but also the 50th anniversary of the publication of his seminal book Les Mots et les Choses, which made Foucault a prominent intellectual figure throughout Europe. We would like to commemorate this double anniversary with a one-day symposium organised by the Department of British Literature and Culture at Göttingen University in cooperation with the Göttingen Center for Gender studies and the Center for Theory of Culture and Society.

While Foucault has introduced many persistent concepts to the fields of critical, cultural, and literary theory, one that has increasingly attracted attention during the past ten to fifteen years is the archive.

Foucault himself employs the term ‘archive’ ambiguously (cf. Eliassen). Depending on context, the archive…

Agamben, Homo Sacer: A Blog Series at the SUP blog

Giorgio Agamben, Homo Sacer: A Blog Series at the SUP blog. Posts by Adam Kotsko, Kevin Attell, Peter Fenves, David Kishik, Alberto Toscano and Lorenzo Chiesa – an all-male lineup, unfortunately.

All nine volumes of the Homo Sacer series, from the inaugural Homo Sacer: Sovereign Power and Bare Life to the final installment, The Use of Bodies published earlier this year. (Two of the nine volumes were published in English by fellow university presses—The State of Exception by University of Chicago Press and Remnants of Auschwitz by MIT Press).

Leading Italian philosopher and political theorist, Giorgio Agamben is perhaps best known for his Homo Sacer project, composed over two decades and launched with the publication of the volume that gave the series its name, Homo Sacer: Sovereign Power and Bare Life. Recruited by Werner Hamacher for Stanford University Press’s Meridian Series, where it appeared in English in 1998, the book signaled a new direction for contemporary political thought.

To celebrate the publication of its ninth and final volume, The Use of Bodies, in English translation, Stanford University Press is hosting a blog roundtable to reflect on the stakes of the series as a whole. The posts that follow will approach Agamben’s work from a variety of intellectual perspectives, approaches that echo the interdisciplinary resonances of this vast and important undertaking.
