Fresh Zizekiana (Ad Nauseum)


Here are some audio-recordings of Zizek’s master class (June 15-19, 2009) at Birkbeck, courtesy of Backdoor Broadcasting Company (h/t Infinite Thought):

The Birkbeck Institute for the Humanities

The master class analyses phenomena of modern thought and culture with the intention to discern elements of possible Communist culture. It moves at two levels: first, it interprets some cultural phenomena (from today’s architecture to classic literary works like Rousseau’s La Nouvelle Heloise) as failures to imagine or enact a Communist culture; second, it explores attempts at imagining how a Communist culture could look, from Wagner’s Ring to Kafka’s and Beckett’s short stories and contemporary science fiction novels.
