Join Etienne Balibar, Gayatri Spivak, Bernard Harcourt, and Jesús Rodriguez-Velasco to the "Uprising 13/13" seminar organized by Columbia Maison Française to talk about revolution !

"Uprising 13/13" will explore thirteen different forms or modalities of uprising, including insurgencies, revolts, hacktivism, disobedience, liberation, sedition, and more. Each session will focus on one form of uprising in relation to historical events, from modern revolutionary movements to the Arab Spring and the Dakota Access Pipeline.

The September 14 session will examine the historical concept of "revolution" and explore the political consequences of conceptualizing revolution in different ways. How do conceptions of revolution relate to theories of history?

Readings that will be discussed during the September 14 session on Revolution:
Reinhardt Koselleck (Futures Past; "Historical Criteria of the Modern Concept of Revolution")
Karl Marx, 18 Brumaire
Marx and Engels, The Communist Manifesto
