Arne De Boever

Finance Fictions

Speculative Thinking in Art, Literature and Philosophy

Speculative Thinking in Art, Literature and Philosophy

This workshop aims to assess the contemporary novel's relation to three buzzwords in late twentieth- and early twenty-first century theory: the state of exception, biopolitics, and speculation. Moving through his books States of Exception in the Contemporary Novel and Narrative Care, literary critic and critical theorist Arne De Boever will return to the contemporary novel once again to investigate the effects of finance capitalism on the human psyche.

Participation is limited, please register prior to the workshop:
