G. W. F. Hegel is arguably the most important thinker of modernity whose legacy reaches to nearly all branches of humanist inquiry. He also remains a source of debate and controversy. This seminar explores Hegel’s thought in the humanities today in a multi-disciplinary frame: literature, philosophy, religion, political science, math, and intellectual history. Speakers will offer brief provocations for discussion, addressing Hegel’s place in the university in the present and future.
