Political Vigilance and Letter Writing as Activism

at Think Olio - Ridgewood
56-06 Cooper Ave, New York, New York 11385

Too often relegated to a byline of the Beat Generation, referred to there as one of the “few female writers of the scene to make it,” Di Prima’s work has a passion and fire all its own, an embodied sense of the bio political as well as the anarchic. Epistles are letters written as poems, providing both a tactile sense of intimacy and accessibility,...

Art and Affect

at Brooklyn Institute for Social Research - Midtown
247 West 37th St 5th Fl, New York, New York 10018

This course will delve into the ways that art has been alternately defined as antidote to and instigator of affect from the postwar period to today.

On Decadence

at Brooklyn Institute for Social Research - Gramercy
30 Irving Pl, New York, New York 10003

Decadence has played a vital role in modern narratives of culture, history, and political economy, in part because narratives of progress, revitalization, and renovation often summon up the specters of entropy and degeneration. On one hand, decadence can indicate a sense of historical or cultural loss in the face of swift-moving technological progress....

Philosophy of History

at Brooklyn Institute for Social Research - Midtown
247 West 37th St 5th Fl, New York, New York 10018

Does history have a direction, a purpose, or an end goal? Can we deduce general historical patterns from studying the past? Is it naïve to hope and work for a better future?

Lauren Berlant: Cruel Optimism

at Brooklyn Institute for Social Research - Morningside Heights
3009 Broadway, New York, New York 10027

Why do we persist in our fantasies of the kind of good life that threatens to kill us?

What are the politics of our desires? These questions are central to the work of Lauren...

Socrates

at Brooklyn Institute for Social Research - Lower East Side
178 Stanton St, New York, New York 10002

The trial, conviction, and execution of Socrates on the vote of the Athenian democracy is a founding myth in the history of Western philosophy.
