Antigone’s Afterlife in Feminist Theory: Bonnie Honigin Conversation with Stefani Engelstein

Venue: online via Zoom
Research project(s): The Entanglements of the Organism

Conversation as part of the virtual colloquium Antigone’s Worldings” at the John Hope Franklin Humanities Institute at Duke University

Join us for a conversation between feminist political theorists, Bonnie Honig and Stefani Engelstein, as they reflect on their mutual explorations of Antigone through the more horizontal lenses of sibling logics and sororal actions, and the ways in which such a focus has opened new paths of inter-related research for them. How has their work on Antigone influenced their current research on the politics of refusal (Honig) and the entanglements of the organism (Engelstein)?
