2015 / 201503 / Écriture Collective - Reading Fiction and Its Theoretical Monster Prodigies
Edgar Allan Poe, The Man of the Crowd
Corner College Collective
 


Edgar Allan Poe, The Man of the Crowd, Elias Canetti, Crowds and Power, Walter Benjamin, The Flâneur


Please note the change in the time: 20:00h, to accommodate those of you who would like to attend Étienne Balibar's lecture at ZHdK before that.

In this third session we will read Edgar Allan Poe's The Man of the Crowd. In the following sessions we will return to it from different angles, exploring its rhizome of interaction with theory and fiction alike, in the genealogy from Gottfried Wilhelm von Leibniz, Gabriel Tarde and Walter Benjamin to Elias Canetti and Bruno Latour, or Gilbert Simondon, Donna Haraway or Antonio Negri and Michael Hardt. Other texts are welcome that can contribute to the diagram, from Science Fiction to microbiological and cosmological scientific texts, philosophy, and contemporary theoretical and fictional writing with new perspectives on the social, which connect the subjects of crowds, swarms, packs, colonies of bacteria, and celestial clusters!
