November 12 – Dean Mathiowetz: “Policing the Sensorium: Rancière, Foucault, & Economies of Luxury”

Dean Mathiowetz’s current work is about the pleasures of luxurious superordination, as a form of what he calls “political sadism.” His work makes sense of the challenges that luxury poses for the realization of democratic aims, and explores the possibilities offered by leisure as a counterpoint to these challenges. Dean Mathiowetz is Associate Professor of Politics at UC Santa Cruz.
