Jacques Derrida: Deconstruction and Difference

at Brooklyn Institute for Social Research - Midtown, New York

With his enigmatic prose and seemingly esoteric approach to language,...

Life in the Anthropocene

at Brooklyn Institute for Social Research - DUMBO, New York

On the eve of the millennium, earth scientists Paul Crutzen and Eugene Stoermer coined the term “the Anthropocene” – the time of humans – to name our current age, reflecting apocalyptic anxieties that nothing on planet Earth seems to be beyond the reach of human industry and interference.  In the nearly two decades since, the Anthropocene...

Reading the Iliad

at Brooklyn Institute for Social Research - Greenwich Village, New York

The Iliad stands at the start of most histories of western literature, even as it remains enduringly strange—often, it seems, at odds with the very tradition it has been taken to inaugurate.  In our course, we will attempt to recapture some of the strangeness and some of the continuing relevance of the Iliad. We will closely read...
