Nicolai’s paper has been quite interestingly and provocatively discussing a radical and counter-hegemonic insurrectionary reading of the French Communes during the French Revolution.

Benjamin is tackling the historical example of how Worker’s Councils have played a strong role in asserting the tenants of radical democracy within the Marxist tradition.

And Gerasimos will tackle the theoretical and political implications of reading Badiou and Castoriadis next to one another.
