September 22nd, 2021: Arendt in the Time of the Pandemic

Reading Arendt in the Time of the Pandemic: Vulnerability and Democracy

Wednesday, September 22nd
03:00 PM Rome
3-5 pm CET / 2-4 BST / 9-11 New York
(via Zoom)

 

Online roundtable to launch and discuss the English translation of Adriana Cavarero’s latest book Surging Democracy: Notes on Hannah Arendt’s Political Thought, Stanford University Press, 2021 (first published in Italian for Raffaello Cortina, 2019).

The event will be held via Zoom and is co-organized by: Hannah Arendt Center for Political Studies (Verona); Centre for Applied Philosophy, Politics and Ethics (Brighton); Hannah Arendt Center for Politics and Humanities at Bard College (Annandale-On-Hudson, NY); Richard Saltoun Gallery (London).

The discussion focuses on the ongoing significance of Hannah Arendt’s work for feminist conceptualisations of democracy. For both Arendt and Cavarero, political community emerges in-between people who actively reveal their uniqueness to one another in the material here-and-now. In light of the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic and the risk of pandemics to come, how is politics and the “public happiness” of democracy to be practised when the proximity of embodied beings becomes a potentially fatal risk? How might recent feminist theories of vulnerability, including those developed by Cavarero, help us make sense of the political stakes of our pandemic times?
