DescriptionThis conference, sponsored by the Revolutionology project at the Neubauer Collegium, asks how the revolutions of the twentieth century—primarily 1917 and 1968—have stimulated philosophical work and what it means to think philosophically about revolution. Several speakers will investigate the subterranean genealogies of philosophical reflections on revolution in the 1960s, showing how revolutionary ideas travel in sometimes surprising ways. Others will take a fresh look at dialogues between Soviet philosophy and seemingly quite distant intellectual and creative communities, like Black America. A third group of speakers will focus on revolutionary dialogues between critical theorists and artists. Over the two days we hope to identify a clear set of hypotheses about what revolution makes visible and thinkable in our world, and how this philosophical reflex informs new revolutionary praxis.
