Distinguished Lectures Series

The Walter Benjamin Kolleg continues the highly successful Distinguished Lectures Series (DLS) established by the former Center for Cultural Studies (CCS) and Prof. Dr. Thomas Claviez. The DLS comprises a series of lectures – usually between three and four per year – on a certain topic, and invites scholars of world renown to give a talk and a connected workshop. Among its past speakers, the DLS has welcomed scholars such as Giorgio Agamben, Paul Gilroy, Homi Bhabha, Jacques Rancière, Judith Butler, and Alain Badiou. The proceedings of the first series will be published by Fordham UP under the title The Common Growl: Towards a Poetics of Precarious Community in July 2016.
