Jacques Rancière, professor emeritus at the Universite de Paris (St. Denis) and faculty member at the European Graduate School is one of the most read and most influential philosophers writing today. No scolar working in the fields of politics, aesthetics, the philosophy of education, or the philosophy of history, can afford to ignore his work.  But Rancière is also at the forefront of rethinking the nature of the scholar and the public intellectual along democratic and activist lines. Among his many works are Reading Capital (1968), The Nights of Labour: The Workers' Dream in Nineteenth-Century France (1989), The Ignorant Schoolmaster: Five Lessons in Intellectual Emancipation (1991), The Names of History; On the Poetics of Knowledge (1994), On the Shores of Politics (1995), Disagreement: Politics and Philosophy (1998), The Politics of Aesthetics: The Distribution of the Sensible (2004), The Future of the Image (2007), Hatred of Democracy (2007), The Aesthetic Unconscious (2009), Aesthetics and its Discontents (2009), The Politics of Literature (2011), and Staging the People: the Proletariat and His Double (2011).

These events are free and open to the public.  Registration is not required. For further information, please contact the Centre for Comparative Literature at (416) 813-4041.
