Dramaturgies of Resistance Lecture & Workshop (Emmanuel Renault, Université Paris Nanterre)

Friday April 21, 2023, 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

Emmanuel Renault (Université Paris Nanterre) will join Dramaturgies of Resistance for a lecture and workshop on Friday, April 21. In these two events, Renault will address the return of labour within critical theory and the experience of exploitation in theories of domination. Renault is professor of philosophy at University of Paris Nanterre. He is author of numerous publications on Hegel, Marx, and pragmatism within the tradition of critical theory. His books in English include The Experience of Injustice: A Theory of Recognition (Columbia University Press, 2019), Marx and Critical Theory (Brill, 2018), and The Return of Work in Critical Theory: Self, Society, Politics (Columbia University Press, 2018).

In his morning lecture, titled “Abolishing Division of Labour or Making It Better,” Renault will speak on Axel Honneth’s account of democracy and the division of labour.

The afternoon workshop will take up Renault’s manuscript Exploités (Exploited) and include responses by Nicole Yokum (University of Toronto, St. George), Natasha Hay (University of Toronto, Scarborough), and Matthew Delhey (University of Toronto, St. George).
