French-Algerian philosopher Seloua Luste Boulbina explores the ways in which psychological, linguistic, and historical knowledge produced during the colonial era continues to shape ideas about migration in the years since independence.  In this work in progress, based on several important texts forthcoming in English translation Laura Hengehold, Professor in the Department of Philosophy, explores Luste Boulbina’s reworking of certain ideas from French thinkers of the 1960s in her effort to relocate postcolonial subjectivity with respect to the discipline of philosophy.

Pre-lecture reception begins at 4:15 pm. 

Free and open to the public.  Registration requested.
