Professor of Political Philosophy
University of Verona (Italy)
The 2015-2016 Symposium on Living Philosophers will focus on the work of Adriana Cavarero, who is Professor of Political Philosophy at University of Verona in Italy. She has been a Visiting Professor at several American institutions, such as Harvard University, New York University, and University of California at Berkeley. Cavarero is widely recognized in Italy, Europe and the English-speaking world for her writings on feminism and theories of sexual difference, on dialectics and politics in Plato, on Greek tragedy, on Hannah Arendt’s concepts of natality and narration, on contemporary violence and ethics, and on a wide range of issues in political philosophy and literature. She has published several books, all of which have been translated into English: In Spite of Plato (1995), Relating Narratives (2000), Stately Bodies (2002), For More than One Voice (2005), and Horrorism: Naming Contemporary Violence (2009). Her two most recent books are forthcoming in English: You Shall Not Kill and Inclinations. Adriana Caverero is our first non-American featured thinker. Her work is deeply interdisciplinary and should be of interest to students of Philosophy, Women’s Studies, English, Creative Arts, Classics, Italian, Political Science, History, and more.
