“Friends like These (A Comico-Political Essay)”
Monday, October 29, 12:30 PM, Swift Common Room
The Jewish Studies Workshop, in collaboration with the Philosophy of Religions and Religion, Literature, and Visual Culture Workshops, is excited to announce a talk with Professor Gil Anidjar of Columbia University on October 29th, at 12:30pm in the Swift Hall Common Room. Professor Anidjar’s talk, entitled “Friends Like These (A Comico-Political Essay),” explores what we might mean by “Jewish Politics.” Professor Anidjar is Professor in the Departments of Religion, Middle Eastern South Asian, and African Studies, and the Institute for Comparative Literature at Columbia University. His most recent book is Blood: A Critique of Christianity, and he is the editor of Jacques Derrida’s Acts of Religion. This will certainly be an exciting talk, and we hope to see you there.
