I propose to have a reading group -- so, not so much as "teach," but maybe, more like lead/facilitate -- on Jacques Ranciere's _The Politics of Aesthetics_, in which we perform a close reading. (Among the many ideas and issues that may surface, I would like to extract an ethics from this specific book: So, the politics of aesthetics (and/as an ethics).
This may lead to another reading group -- if the first one is "successful" -- whatever that may mean. It will be dedicated to Ranciere's _The Future of the Image_. This would include screening films (videos/DVDs) that Ranciere discusses in the aforementioned text along with a close reading (and viewing).
Sunday, March 16 and 23 from 11am-1pm and Tuesday, April 1 from 8-10pm.
