Ernesto Laclau

Ernesto Laclau: Articulation and the Limits of Metaphor

Co-presented with CalArts’ graduate Aesthetics and Politics Program

Argentine political theorist Ernesto Laclau, one of the most influential thinkers of our time, is on hand to expound on his latest works and their relationships with contemporary political processes in a conversation with fellow political theorist Martín Plot. The longtime director of the doctoral Programme in Ideology and Discourse Analysis at the University of Essex in England, Laclau is the author, with Chantal Mouffe, of Hegemony and Socialist Strategy: Towards a Radical Democratic Politics (1985), a landmark volume that reinvigorated social and political theory and the project of radical democracy. His other books include Emancipation(s) (1996), On Populist Reason (2005) and, most recently, Elusive Universality (2008).
