Saein Park: “Dancing Waste of History: Lumpen in Heine, Marx, & Benjamin”
May 23, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm | Humanities 1, Room 210
Saein Park’s current project argues that the discourses of Lumpen record the changing demarcations of disposable lives during the emergence of European industrial modernity. She researches 19th- and early-20th-century German-language literature, political philosophy, and critical theory, focusing on translation and reception studies, theories of waste, and plant studies.
Saein Park is a Visiting Assistant Professor at UC Santa Cruz.
