Zizek in NYC

September 16, 2009

Zizek is going to be at the Brecht Forum in October.  I saw him talk there a couple of years ago before the release of In Defense of Lost Causes, around the same time that we were finishing our reading of The Parallax View.

    There are a handfull of papers at the upcoming Rethinking Marxism conference that use Zizek’s work on violence to talk about labour politics, etc. One paper is by one of the organizers. It might be worth checking out…(both VP and I will be there)…
