Antonio Gramsci is one of the most important Marxist thinkers of the 20th Century; he was the founder of the Italian Communist Party and was imprisoned by Mussolini’s fascist regime. In recent years his writings became influential particularly within critical theory and cultural studies, due to his analysis of hegemony, political leadership, and cultural phenomena. In this seminar we will read selected texts from his Prison Notebooks, focusing in particular on issues such as hegemony, philosophy of praxis, the State, and historicism. This course will move largely through class discussion.
Open to Undergraduate students.
