Political Concepts: The Balibar Edition – December 02 – Session 01

Jacques Lezra (New York University) – Relation

Ellen Rooney (Brown University) – Trope

Chair – Amanda Anderson (Brown University)

The goal of Political Concepts is to serve as a platform for revising, inventing, and experimenting with concepts while exploring the political dimension of their use and dissemination. Participants operate under the assumption that our era urgently needs a revised political lexicon that would help us better understand the world in which we live and act, and that the humanities at large can and should contribute toward such a revision. In the past, some of the participants revised key political concepts while others showed the political work done by terms and common nouns that are not usually considered “political.”
