Fales Lecture (3/11): Continental Philosophy & American Culture

Dear Students:

Please see below for information on a celebratory lecture on Semiotext(e), the publishing group that is credited with bringing French Theory to the US. The event was brought to our attention by Draper student Christine Woody, who works as a graduate assistant at Fales and has been processing the recently acquired Sylvere Lotringer Papers and Semiotext(e) archive for the past year.
