Theorizing the Present

3CT’s signature series features presentations by international scholars and practitioners whose work is engaged with theorizing the contemporary moment. Established in Spring 2005, Theorizing the Present is 3CT’s longest-running initiative and has brought to the University of Chicago such scholars as Susan Buck-Morss, Étienne Balibar, Manu Goswami, Robert Brenner, Elizabeth Povinelli, Michael Hardt, and Sandro Mezzadra. It also frequently invites University of Chicago faculty to present new work; previous speakers include Susan Gal, Patchen Markell, Leela Gandhi, and Judith B. Farquhar.
