Susan Buck-Morss: “History as Translation”

January 18, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm  |  Stevenson Fireside Lounge


Susan Buck-Morss’s current project, Year 1, dives into recent research on the first century in order to topple various conceptual givens that have shaped modernity as an episteme (and led us into some unhelpful post-modern impasses), and argues there is no way forward without retracing our steps and charting another course (while discovering surprising fellow-travellers along the way).

Susan Buck-Morss is a Distinguished Professor of Political Science at CUNY Graduate Center and a Professor Emerita of Government at Cornell University.


Co-Sponsored by the Departments of History of Consciousness, Literature, and Politics


The Center for Cultural Studies hosts a weekly Wednesday colloquium featuring work by faculty and visitors. The sessions consist of a 40-45 minute presentation followed by discussion. We gather at noon, with presentations beginning at 12:15 PM. Participants are encouraged to bring their own lunches; the Center provides coffee, tea, and cookies.

All Center for Cultural Studies events are free and open to the public.  Staff assistance is provided by the Institute for Humanities Research.
