Agora Seminars, in connection to PAF Summer University 10 - 19 August

A new set of Agora Seminars will take place in connection to PAF Summer University. After a successful spring session it is time to take on new challenges with three fresh kick ass seminar hosts venturing into notions of political activism, upgraded Marxist thinking, biopolitics of war and finally to the cross-roads between the public and institutional.

The set up is simply and the usual 5- 6 hour per day, no images, and for the rest we offer you PAF’s all energetic opportunities and self-organized magic. We start up at 15.00 on the 10 August.

Nina Power has been editor of bunches of book and writes for among other publications European Philosophy, atomism, pedagogy, art and politics, and magazines such as New Statesman, New Humanist, Cabinet, Radical Philosophy and The Philosophers’ Magazine.
