Hannah Arendt: Eichmann in Jerusalem, 50 years after

The Center for the Humanities invites you to attend this conference from Sep 26 - 28 at Wesleyan University.

Hannah Arendt’s book Eichmann in Jerusalem: A Report on the Banality of Evil continues to be one of the most famous and controversial works of political theory ever written.

To commemorate the 50th anniversary of the book’s publication and to reexamine Arendt’s claims and the heated debates they provoked, this interdisciplinary conference will feature speakers from the U.S., Germany, and Israel representing the fields of political theory, moral philosophy, intellectual history, law, Holocaust studies, feminist and gender studies, and literary theory.

The conference is hosted by the Center for the Humanities and co-sponsored by the College of Letters, Jewish and Israel Studies, German Studies, Government, the DAAD (German Academic Exchange Service), and the generous support of an anonymous donor.
