Él no es: Infrapolitics and the Experience of Tragedy
A virtual talk and Q&A with Gareth Williams
Friday, April 23rd at 12:30 pm
Gareth Williams is a professor of Latin American Studies and Critical Theory at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. He is also the author of numerous books that explore Latin America in the context of unfettered neoliberalism and globalization, with particular interest in the history of political thought and the genealogies of continental philosophy, Marxism, post-Marxism, and psychoanalysis. His latest book, Infrapolitical Passages: Global Turmoil, Narco-Accumulation and the Post Sovereign State (Fordham UP, 2021), explores the exhaustion of current political determinations and proposes the Infrapolitical as an alternative to thinking biopolitical productions of subjectivity and life.
