Frankfurtish: the undercommons

5 Feb

Dears,

Next Wednesday, February 11th, the Frankfurt School Working Group will meet to talk about the contemporary text The Undercommons, by Fred Moten and Stefano Harney. We’re going to focus on chapters 2 and 4, “The University and the Undercommons” and “Debt and Study,” but the entire book is available (appropriately, as you’ll see) for free online here: http://www.minorcompositions.info/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/undercommons-web.pdf. It might be especially fun to think about the Adorno articles we read last week in concert with the concepts of critique, study, and fugitivity developed in The Undercommons. Hope you enjoy the reading, and see you next week (same time, same place: Wheeler Hall 450 at 5pm).

yours,

Megan & Erin
