Reading Walter Benjamin

Spring 2020

Taught By: Nancy Fraser and Eli Zaretsky

Section: A

CRN: 6831

Credits: 3

By any reckoning Walter Benjamin remains a brilliant star in the firmament of 20th century critical theory and “western Marxism.” But what can he teach us now, in the 21st century? In this seminar, we undertake a systematic reading of some of Benjamin’s major works in order to probe the thought of this brilliant, idiosyncratic thinker.
