Political Memory and the Aesthetics of Care

Friday, February 18, 2022 at 10:00am to 11:30am

Virtual Event

Genealogy in the Humanities invites you to an ‘author-meets-readers’ seminar with Professor Mihaela Mihai (Edinburgh) to discuss her new book Political Memory and the Aesthetics of Care: The Art of Complicity and Resistance (Stanford 2022).

Dr. Mihai is Senior Lecturer in political theory in the School of Social and Political Science at the University of Edinburgh. Her research cuts across political theory, political science and law to examine issues in political emotions, political judgment, the politics of memory, art and politics, gender, and theories of oppression. She is the author of two books, including Negative Emotions and Transitional Justice (Columbia Univerity Press, 2016), as well as multiple edited volumes: Political Violence and Imagination: Complicity, Memory and Resistance (Routledge 2020), Reclaiming Democracy: Judgment, Responsibility and the Right to Politics (Routledge 2015), and On the Uses and Abuses of Political Apologies (Palgrave 2014).

Political Theory in the Archives is a year-long program led by the Genealogy in the Humanities Working Group (Cornell/Syracuse) and generously supported by a grant from the Central New York Humanities Corridor.

The seminar is open to faculty and graduate students. Readings will be made available for registered seminar participants. There are limited gratis paperback copies of Political Memory and the Aesthetics of Care available for participating Cornell University and Syracuse University graduate students. If you are interested in receiving a copy, please contact Alex Livingston at
