5:00 PM - 7:00 PM
Join Professor Kennan Ferguson of the University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee as he looks at prehuman hominins through DNA analysis to emphasize their similarities to contemporary humans. The talk will explore how politics preexists humanity, and how that may mean we are products of politics rather than politics being a human tool.
Kennan Ferguson is Associate Professor of Political Science at the University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee. He is the author of All in the Family: On Community and Incommensurability, William James: Politics in the Pluriverse, and The Politics of Judgment: Aesthetics, Identity and Political Theory. He is the series co-editor of “Modernity and Political Thought” for Rowman and Littlefield, the chair of the Foundations of Political Theory section for APSA, and an editor of Theory and Event.
