Deutsches Haus at NYU and the Department of German at NYU present a talk by Slavoj Žižek, professor of Philosophy and Psychoanalysis, who will speak on "Racial Enjoyments: What the Liberal Left Doesn’t Want to Hear." The event will be held at the Iris & B. Gerald Cantor Film Center.
Slavoj Žižek engages Nikki Johnson-Huston, who recently described how "white Liberals have hijacked the conversation about diversity, political correctness and what topics we should be outraged about." His lecture provides some theoretical background and discussion points to complement her perspicacious insights. The status of the university campus as locus for racialist mappings will be scrupulously reviewed.
