The next Knowledge Exchange Lecture will be:

WHOEVER SEES GOD DIES
DR. SAM MCAULIFFE

TUESDAY (4TH OF MAR) AT 17h30-18h30, RHB 350 (GOLDSMITHS)

Dr. Sam McAuliffe is a Visiting Tutor at Goldsmiths, University of London within the Visual Cultures department, with a background in modern European philosophy, literature and the visual arts. On the basis of his doctoral research (a study of the image in the philosophies of Adorno, Blanchot and Deleuze) he is currently working on two extended projects: one devoted to nature, history, and utopia in Adorno, the other concerned with image, voice and their relation, as it appears in the theoretical and fictional writing of Blanchot.

Background reading in advance of the lecture:
Blanchot’s fragments devoted to Narcissus (pp. 125-8; 134-35) in The Writing of the Disaster.
Blanchot’s ‘Speaking is Not Seeing,’ in The Infinite Conversation
