UCLA seminar

This looks suitably impressive (should everyone turn up of course) and the fascinating full course syllabus is here. On a very much smaller scale I'm starting to run a programme of theory seminars at my place, in between the teaching and the ever increasing number of meetings. I'll also probably be starting a separate blog for this (and for advertising all events), although after seeing this my puny efforts feel puny.
The topic of the UCLA seminar on Experimental Critical Theory this year is “the Subject”; winter quarter will focus on Hegel and Badiou, and spring quarter will examine Freud and Lacan.
The seminar will be lead by Kenneth Reinhard, and guest seminar leaders will include:
Winter:
Étienne Balibar, Bruno Bosteels and ECT Committee members John McCumber, Eleanor Kaufman, and Jason Smith.
Spring: Slavoj Zizek, Mladen Dolar, Graham Hammill, Catherine Malabou, Jean Wyatt, Eric Santner, and Alain Badiou.

In the winter, the following public lectures, linked to the seminar, will be offered:
Feb. 23: Bruno Bosteels, “Badiou and Hegel”
Feb. 24: Bruno Bosteels, “Marx and Marti: Logics of the Disencounter”(rooms and time TBA)

In the spring, the following conferences, lectures, and debates linked to the seminar will be offered:
April 7 & 8: “Recovered Voices” conference (featuring Slavoj Zizek, Mladen Dolar, and others)
May 28: Badiou/Zizek debate: “Saving Wagner – A Communist Perspective” (2:00, Schoenberg Hall)
June 1 & 2: Conference on “Wagner in LA: The Opera of the 21st Century?” (featuring Slavoj Zizek, Alain Badiou, Fredric Jameson, and others)
