Hannah Arendt Humanities Network
2023 Text Seminar: Arendt and/on Race
Deadline: March 1, 2023OSUN's Hannah Arendt Humanities Network will hold its 2023 Annual Text Seminar on "Arendt and/on Race" on June 7th-10th in Hudson, NY. This four-day intensive seminar convenes scholars from OSUN institutions to lead a close reading of a classic work of political or democratic thinking.
This text seminar will read Arendt's writings on race, racism, and antisemitism. As an intensive four-day workshop, the seminar’s goal is to pursue the thread of race in Arendt’s thought through her writings and to understand the meaning of race for Arendt. In addition, the seminar will ask how the category of race frames and structures her critical project in not always acknowledged ways.
Applicants must be affiliated with an institution in the OSUN network. Travel to Hudson, New York and accommodation there will be reimbursed.
We invite scholars from all fields to propose to read closely and critically a specific passage or text by Arendt on race or racism. Participants may read Arendt on her own or in conversation with her interrogators. Each participant will have 90 minutes to present their reading of Arendt (that time includes discussion by the seminar group).
To apply, please submit a 400-word abstract that specifies the text you will be focusing on and the topic of your presentation. Email HAC Director of Academic Programs Jana Schmidt at [email protected].

Deadline to submit is Wednesday, March 1
