Mapping Intellectual Marathons Across the US

In 2020, A Night of Philosophy & Ideas/Night of Ideas all-night intellectual marathons are taking place across the United States, from Miami to Chicago and Los Angeles to New York.

This year's events bring together major thinkers and artists to participate in philosophical conversations about some of the most pressing issues of our time, in an atmosphere resembling a summer music festival or a large-scale art happening. 2020 guest speakers and artists include 2019 Nobel Prize-winning economist Esther Duflo; Institute for Advanced Studies anthropologist, sociologist, and physician Didier Fassin; journalist and sex columnist Maïa Mazaurette; and philosophers Catherine Malabou and Barbara Stiegler. There will also be performances and art by French juggler Jérôme Thomas, and two of his colleagues, Jörg Müller and Martin Schwietze,  Armenian-Syrian installation artist Hratch Arbach.

Explore the map below to see where all of the events are happening, and chart your own tour, if you dare!
