Plans for Moishe Postone (U. of Chicago) to visit the Serious Times Seminar, 2016-2017

Plans are in the works for Professor Moishe Postone (University of Chicago) to return to the Serious Times Seminar at Critical Theory and the Arts, 2016-2017, to discuss the current transformation of labor in the “knowledge economy” and related developments in social theory. Professor Postone’s discussion will contribute to the program’s ongoing interest in how changes in technology and production are resulting in new forms of individual identity and how the ideal of the tech-savvy entrepreneur is changing the idea of what an “artist” is today. Moishe Postone was previously a guest of the Serious Times Lecture Series in the program’s inaugural year.
