InhalteThe seminar will revolve around Toni Negri’s philosophy.

After a two days introduction on 17 and 18 April, there will be Wednesday evening talks by leading experts on “Italian Theory” like Serhat Karakayali, Stefano Harney, Isabell Lorey, Sandro Mezzadra, Roberto Nigro, Judith Revel, and others, to be followed via web stream. They will be examined in final discussion.
