November 2014 Newsletter

November 2014

First of all, apologies for the long absence of news updates – we had been hoping to switch over to the new website at the same time as the beginning of the new academic year, but due to a number of technical hitches this has not happened yet. So here is an interim newsletter, pointing you to the things we recorded at the end of the last, and the beginning of the present academic year:

Let’s start off with the ‘traditional’ end of the academic year at Birkbeck, University of London, which means the Friday debates from the London Critical Theory Summer School, this year with Drucilla Cornell, Etienne Balibar, Stephen Frosh, Costas Douzinas, David Harvey, Esther Leslie, Jaqueline Rose and Slavoj Zizek.
