with Avital Ronell


The presentation tracks the scandal of Goethe's invention of metereology with the aim of probing extinction events,  catastrophe trafficking, complications of apocalyptic shutdown that run from Derrida to Tom Cohen. Inescapably,  the reading protocols involve reflections on new forms of social death and autoimmune disorders affecting the failure of human custodial care.
