Emmanuel Renault


Emmanuel Renault (Université Paris Nanterre) will join Dramaturgies of Resistance for a lecture and workshop on Friday, April 21. In these two events, Renault will address the return of labour within critical theory and the experience of exploitation in theories of domination.

In his morning lecture, entitled "Abolishing division of labour or making it better?," Renault will speak on Axel Honneth’s account of democracy and the division of labour.

The afternoon workshop will take up Renault’s manuscript Exploités (Exploited) and include responses by Nicole Yokum (University of Toronto, St. George), Natasha Hay (University of Toronto, Scarborough), and Matthew Delhey (University of Toronto, St).

Those interested in participating in the workshop should email Matthew Delhey to obtain the reading materials.

Dramaturgies of Resistance is supported by the JHI Program for the Arts.
