Judith Butler: Vulnerability and Resistance

Judith Butler: Vulnerability and Resistance

“Judith Butler is quite simply one of the most probing, challenging, and influential thinkers of our time.”

– J.M. Bernstein, The New School for Social Research

Co-presented with the CalArts Aesthetics and Politics Program

Eminent American philosopher Judith Butler visits REDCAT to give the third of four Los Angeles lectures in connection with her residency at the CalArts School of Critical Studies' Aesthetics and Politics Program. Assembled under the title of “Demonstrating Precarity: Vulnerability, Embodiment, and Resistance,” her talks address questions of political dissent, protest, resistance and violence in light of recent developments in the United States and abroad. Butler has authored numerous influential books, among them Gender Trouble: Feminism and the Subversion of Identity (1990) and Precarious Life. The Powers of Mourning and Violence (2004) and, most recently, Dispossession: The Performative in the Political (2013). She is the Maxine Elliot Professor in the Department of Comparative Literature and the Program of Critical Theory at UC Berkeley and the Hannah Arendt Professor of Philosophy at the European Graduate School.
