on lateness: Monday, March 3

25 Feb

Hi dears,

Our next Frankfurt School Working Group meeting will take place in Wheeler Hall 450 at 5pm on Monday, March 3rd. Our evening’s theme will be “lateness;” Ulf will guide us through a conversation about Adorno’s essay “Late Style in Beethoven” and Said’s “Timeliness and Lateness.” Please come prepared to pose one question to the group about the theme and/or the readings. We look forward to a great conversation!

(also, for fun and if/because you [always] have surplus time for adorno, check out this profile of a german philosopher-turned-aphorist who sees himself as something of a playful heir to the critical theory set)

yours,

Megan & Erin

meeting reminder: today @ 5pm @ Henry’s

Hi dears,

We hope to see many of you this evening at Henry‘s for a rich conversation about Marcuse’s unabashedly optimistic work, The Aesthetic Dimension.

Discussion of Marcuse next Wednesday, 2/19, @ 5pm at Henry’s

12 Feb

Dear frankenfriends,

Due to the some presidents’ birthdays, our meeting next week will be on Wednesday (the 19th) at 5pm, rather than on our typical Monday evening. And we’ll also be off campus, talking about Marcuse’s The Aesthetic Dimension at Henry‘s on Durant and Bowditch. Please join us! We look forward to lively belatedness in our tarrying with Marcuse.

We’d also like to point your attention to an event on campus this week, which might be of interest: on Thursday at 5pm in Dwinelle 3335, Rebecca Comay will deliver a lecture on Benjamin, the performative utterance of lament, and Hamlet.

yours,

Megan & Erin

reminder: FSWG meeting today at 5pm in Wheeler 450

3 Feb

Hi dear friends,

This is just a reminder that the Frankfurt School WG’s first meeting of the semester will be this evening at 5pm. Please join us in Wheeler Hall 450, where we’ll talk about Marcuse, memory, desire, and visions of “a nonaggressive, nonexploitative world.” Snacks and drinks will be aggressively offered.

yours,

Megan & Erin
