13/13 Seminar Series

The seminar series that focused on Michel Foucault’s Collège de France lectures and produced the Foucault 13/13 series during the 2015-2016 academic year; the seminar series focused on critical readings of Friedrich Nietzsche that produced the Nietzsche 13/13 series during the 2016-2017 academic year; and the seminar series that will focus on various modalities of disobedience and revolt and will produce the Uprising 13/13 series all follow a similar format. At each session, two or three guests, from different disciplines, are invited to discuss the readings and present on the themes of the seminar, after which there is an open discussion on the presented themes and questions. Each seminar will host specialists from across the disciplines, from Columbia University and from outside campus. It will also frame and interrelate with a Paris Reading Group that will run alongside the seminar. Please also see the Politics in the Present series which this series also falls under: http://heymancenter.org/events/type/13-13-seminar-series/
