Following up on last year’s Anniversary Seminar on Foucault and Derrida: Theory and Practice, the Departments of Philosophy, English and Education Studies at the University of Malta would like to announce the second Engaging the Contemporary: Philosophy, Literature and Education seminar which will be held on Friday 20 November 2015 at the KSU Common Room, starting at 08:30.
The aim of this series is to organise an annual day seminar to encourage participation by the public, students, graduates and academics coming from different departments and backgrounds. The focus of this year’s seminar will be Giorgio Agamben and Jacques Rancière, two figures whose works traverse and are used across several fields in the humanities, necessitating a multi-disciplinary engagement such as this event. The seminar programme and booklet of abstracts can be found online.
