Assignment 4: Write two double-spaced pages drawing on Wang, Ghodsee, and Badiou


Assignment 4: Write two double-spaced pages drawing on Wang, Ghodsee, and Badiou to reflect on what the materials in this course tell us about the future of politics. Are we stuck in an interval of depoliticization? Will a new political idea make history start up again? These are examples of questions drawn from the texts, but you may focus on whatever aspects interest you the most.

the Sixties”
2. Kristin Ghodsee, Red Hangover, chapters 10 and 14
