The New Faces of the Enemy

Saturday, January 29th   |   5:00pm   |   Round-table   |   The New York Public Library - Celeste Bartos Forum
Hosted by: Ann Stoler
Co-presented with LIVE from the New York Public Library

There is always an other, but must there always be an enemy? Is there a need for an enemy in the solidifying of social groups? Thinkers and writers from very different backgrounds will share their analyses: Philip Gourevitch has written extensively on Abu Ghraib and Rwanda, Scott Atran has studied the making of suicide bombers, Grégoire Chamayou has just published a philosophical work on the peculiarity of man hunting, and Ariel Colonomos is investigating the idea of preventive war.
Tickets: $15/$10
