Paris Seminars

The Paris Reading Group

Fall/Spring 2017-2018

with Florent Jakob, Daniele Lorenzini, Christine Valero, and Loren Wolfe


The purpose of this reading group, which runs parallel to the New York seminar led by Columbia University Professors Bernard Harcourt and Jesús Velasco on the Columbia campus, is to explore different forms of uprising in both theoretical and practical terms through the writings of a number of philosophers and critical thinkers of the nineteenth and twentieth century. Each of the 13 sessions of the reading group will be devoted to the discussion of forms of resistance and revolt.
