This conference on “Thinking with Balibar” will explore the influence of Etienne Balibar's work, not paying tribute to Étienne Balibar per se, but showing how certain concepts, arguments, and methods that he applies in his work can be and are being used by scholars in different fields working on crucial issues of our time. The conference will thus be inspired by his work instead of being on is work. It celebrates three years of Étienne Balibar's participation in the intellectual community at Columbia as a Visiting Professor in the Department of French and the Institute for Comparative Literature and Society (ICLS). He will also be speaking at the conference.
