March on -empyre- soft-skinned space: Baudrillard Enoncé, or, The Future of Theory with Aliette Guibert Certhoux and McKenzie Wark

http://www.subtle.net/empyre

Moderated by Nicholas Ruiz III (US) editor, intertheory.org and Christina McPhee (US) with special guests Aliette Guibert Certhoux (FR), editor, editions critical secret, Paris http://wwwcriticalsecret.com and, McKenzie Wark, Associate Professor of Media Studies, Eugene Lang College and the New School for Social Research, New York

énoncer (FR): to convey ‘in a particular manner of speaking or presentation,’ quite similar to English ‘enuciation,’ perhaps with more subtle depth..

With the passing of Baudrillard, it seems timely and important to reflect on how philosophy matters, how it is énoncé, in our lives.

The conversation will be bilingual in French and English, translations included.

——————————————————->Aliette
Guibert Certhoux: De l’enfance — qui lui a donné à apprendre l’enfance de ses parents, celle de ses grand-parents, celle de ses arrière-grand-parents, à celle de ses propres enfants et petits-enfants, et d’autre part, de l’environnement de leurs amis et partenaires jusqu’à l’environnement divers des siens, aimés, amis, alliés, et rencontres, elle imagine trois siècles de diversité sociale en même temps, sans diplôme et sans parti sinon celui de l’insoumission légitime au troisième millénaire, ce qui fait la complexité insolente, mais sans complexe, de l’actualité de la directrice des publications, de la revue criticalsecret.com –, toutes disciplines confondues y font le lit de l’indiscipline féconde.
