Lectures by Serhat Karakayali and Roberto Nigro
Wednesday 10 May, 6pm. Leuphana University Lüneburg, Room C 40.606
Karakayali/Nigro, Antonio Negri: A Philosophy of Subversion
These lectures form part of a translocal series marking the 90th birthday of Antonio Negri: a key figure within Italian Operaismo, a participant in the Autonomia movements of the 1970s, and a political philosopher whose work has engaged the thought of Machiavelli, Spinoza, Marx and Foucault in order to comprehend transformations in capital, labour and revolution in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries.
By focusing on some of the most important political and philosophical notions Negri has elaborated since the 1970s, this seminar will explore their relevance for contemporary analyses and the critique of capitalistic relations of power. The two papers presented by Serhat Karakayali and Roberto Nigro will be in English. They will be streamed and audio archived along with others in this series at: https://transversal.at/audio/translocal-lecture-series-lueneburg.

Serhat Karakayali is professor of migration and mobility at Leuphana University.
