Bernstein (New School for Social Research), who will convene the seminar Of Masters and Slaves: Reading Hegel’s Phenomenology; Judith Butler (University of California, Berkeley), who will convene the seminar Freud to Klein: Death Drive, Pleasure, Ethics; and Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak (Columbia), who will convene the seminar Why Marx Today?.

The application portal for the 2016 Summer Seminars opens Sept. 1, 2015 and closes Dec. 1, 2015. International scholars, especially those in the Global South, are encouraged to apply; scholarships and travel grants are available.
