The Scandal of the Human

Lecture | September 14 | 5-7 p.m. | 3335 Dwinelle Hall


Christopher Peterson, Senior Lecturer in the School of Humanities and Communication Arts, Western Sydney University

Do we not risk denying the human—or rather the persistence of its phantasm—in our enthusiasm to mark a decisive “turn” toward the nonhuman? I argue that the human can declare the fallacy of its own exceptionality only from the...   More >

After decades of state-building success, Austria-Hungary collapsed totally and utterly in 1918. For many years, historians have argued that this ramshackle empire was an anachronism, unfit to live among modern nation states in the twentieth century, and therefore it was destined to fall. But such thinking ignores the dynamics unleashed by the First World War, including the state of exception and...   More >
