Deutsches Haus, Columbia University
A recent and intense interest in the concept of catastrophe has brought it back to the heart of political rhetoric, historical and philosophical research, film and other forms of representation, and, not least, to a revived and a vibrant theological discourse. Our workshop suggests a historical and an analytical discussion of the idea of catastrophe, its re-emergence in light of its past, and its contemporary appearances.
