This looks to be a pretty great series of events for those in the NYC area. Hosted by Alexander Galloway and the Public School New York:
French Theory Today: An Introduction to Possible Futures | Taught by Alexander R. Galloway
A seminar covering five philosophers over five days. Looking beyond the influential generation of 1960s and ’70s French theory, we will explore a number of younger voices only now being discovered by the English-speaking world. Our goal is not to set in aspic a new canon for French philosophy, but rather to proceed inductively, tracing some recent experiments and possible futures. Short readings will be circulated for each session. Attend each day or just the days you wish. Free and open to everyone.
