May 23, 2018 – Saein Park: “Dancing Waste of History: Lumpen in Heine, Marx, & Benjamin”

Saein Park’s current project argues that the discourses of Lumpen record the changing demarcations of disposable lives during the emergence of European industrial modernity. She researches 19th- and early-20th-century German-language literature, political philosophy, and critical theory, focusing on translation and reception studies, theories of waste, and plant studies.

Saein Park is a Visiting Assistant Professor at UC Santa Cruz.
