[What is Politics? A Conference on Hannah Arendt at Villa Aurora]
The German-Jewish-American thinker Hannah Arendt, born in Hannover, exiled to Paris and later to New York, dedicated her work to the reinvention of the public realm and to freedom in political action.
Today, as in the 1960s, the ideas of this woman philosopher inspire theoretical debates as well as civil political initiatives. The conference in Villa Aurora will explore the influence of her European-American experience and the particular importance of transcultural exchange in Arendt’s theory of political action.

Location: Los Angeles
