We are pleased to invite you to a lecture by Kristin Ross, historian, French literature specialist and translator:
The Seventh Wonder of the ZAD
The conference will take place next Tuesday, October 12, at 4:30 pm, in the ENSAPC auditorium, and will be followed by a discussion.
“One could say that the coherence of my work lies mainly in my interest in the oppositional resources of everyday life. How to make such resources visible? In the case of the Commune or the ZAD, it is not a matter of paying attention to their ideals, but rather to what Marx called their “existence in act”.” https://www.revue-ballast.fr/kristin-ross-le-passe-est-imprevisible/
