April 29: Conference Post-Truth and Politics


Conference
Post-Truth and Politics
Departing from the Thought of Hannah Arendt

Drawing on the resonance of Arendt's thought, the conference will explore the question of truth and politics across disciplines and in the light of current events. While addressing the controversies regarding the so-called "post-truth society" that have focussed on the role of the university and the media, the conference will further consider the significance for truth and politics of literature and the arts.

Organized by ICI Berlin and Bard College Berlin in collaboration with the Hannah Arendt Center at Bard College, in continuation of a cooperation first established in 2013.

Date: Saturday, April 29 2017
Venue: ICI Berlin, Christinenstraße 18-19, 10119 Berlin
