This workshop brings together colleagues from around the world to debate their recent contributions to post-foundational political thought. Each book will be introduced by the authors for 20 minutes followed by an initial set of questions from another participant. Authors will address two questions in their interventions: first, their approach to political ontology, and second the implications of this for their thinking of the political. We welcome colleagues from around the world to participate in these discussions.
