Courses and workshops

This course has been designed as an introduction and a guide to reading the works of one of the most influential thinkers of contemporary critical philosophy. On the occasion of her visit to the CCCB, the Institute of Humanities has invited six eminent readers of Judith Butler to share their interpretation of some key aspects of her thinking. From her key contributions to the problematization of gender category, which made her book Gender Trouble one of the key works on feminism and queer theory, to her reflections on recognition, vulnerability, violence and, more recently, collective forms of political action.
