What can Hannah Arendt’s life and work teach us about our present political moment? Arendt scholar Samantha Rose Hill, Assistant Director of the Hannah Arendt Centre for Politics and Humanities at Bard College, will talk about the renewed interest in Hannah Arendt’s work, and why we should be reading Arendt now to better understand the politics of today.
The ongoing coronavirus pandemic has prevented this lecture from going ahead in person. However, we have arranged to have Dr. Hill give the lecture from the comfort and safety of her home via livestream! Anyone with an internet connection can join.
