Invitation to a Roundtable on Apocalyptic Thought in Twentieth-Century Germany

Consider the powerful images conjured up by the words “apocalypse” and “end times”!

We begin our fall semester activities with a provocative and fascinating roundtable discussion with three scholars on the topic of Apocalypticism in Twentieth-Century Germany. Prof. Michael Meng of Clemson University will discuss the philosopher Carl Schmitt’s politics of violence. Prof. Monica Black of UT will present on popular apocalyptic thought in German society after the fall of Hitler. Dr. Jason Dawsey of UT will discuss Günther Anders and the limits of the apocalyptic imagination.

Please do join us for this exciting presentation of scholarship, which is open to the public, on Wednesday, September 16, from 3:30-5pm in Hodges Library, Room 605.

If you have questions, please contact Prof. Monica Black.

This event is also hosted and supported by the UT History Department, the AfterWars research seminar (funded by the UT Humanities Center).

The flagship campus of the University of Tennessee System and partner in the Tennessee Transfer Pathway.
