on Publics and Counterpublics: Wednesday, March 19th @ 5pm

12 Mar

Dears,

The next Frankfurt School Working Group meeting will take place a week from today, on Wednesday, March 19th, at 5pm in Wheeler 450. Our conversation will focus on a trio of pieces on the concept of the public sphere: Michael Warner’s “Publics and Counterpublics,” Habermas’s short “encyclopedia version” of the history and theory presented at greater length in The Structural Transformation of the Public Sphere, and Nancy Fraser’s influential feminist response to Habermas, “Rethinking the public sphere.” Our conversation will likely touch upon all three, but we’d like for folks to especially focus on Warner’s queer re-visioning of Habermas. And, like last week, please come with at least one question you’d like the group to consider together.

yours,

Megan & Erin
