Reminder: Martin Jay this afternoon; Jupiter tomorrow

9 Dec

Hello all,

This is to remind you about this afternoon’s discussion with Martin Jay, co-sponsored with the Intellectual History Working Group. It begins at 4pm in 3401 Dwinelle, and the conversation with Professor Jay will focus on three pre-circulated works: “Historical Explanation and the Event,” “The Textual Approach to Intellectual History,” and “Two Cheers for Paraphrase- the Confessions of a Synoptic Intellectual Historian.”

And tomorrow at 5pm, we’ll gather at Jupiter for our end-of-semester celebration. If it rains as expected, look for us upstairs. And the reading we’ll discuss amidst toasts is Jane Bennett’s “The Force of Things,” from Vibrant Matter, which engages with Adorno on pp 13-17.

our best,

Sheri & Erin
