CRITICAL THEORIES WORKSHOP: FOUCAULT & ADORNO
Friday & Saturday, April 20-21, 2018
Keynote Speaker: Deborah Cook, University of Windsor
Prof. Cook’s new book is The Critical Matrix: Adorno and Foucault, forthcoming with Verso. Prof. Cook received her doctorate from Paris I-Panthéon-Sorbonne in 1985. In Paris, she took courses with Jacques Derrida at the École Normale, and with Michel Foucault at the Collège de France. To date, she has published more than thirty articles on Adorno; five of them are reprinted in anthologies. A book she edited, Theodor Adorno: Key Concepts, published by Acumen, appeared in 2008. Adorno on Nature was also published by Acumen in 2011.
In addition to Prof. Cook’s keynote, there will be paper presentations by Chicago area graduate students which aim to produce a dialogue between these two prominent twentieth-century social critics. There is also a year-long series of reading groups on Adorno, Foucault, and secondary literature in conjunction with the workshop.
