Queering the Frankfurt School

The Humanities Center welcomes Adrian Daub (Stanford University, Comparative Literature) for a colloquium. His respondents will be Sabine von Dirke (German) and Mary Zaborskis (Gender, Sexuality, and Women's Studies). 

Adrian Daub is Professor of Comparative Literature and German Studies at Stanford University. His research focuses on the intersection of literature, music and philosophy, particularly in the nineteenth century. One of Daub’s books—Uncivil Unions: The Metaphysics of Marriage in German Idealism and Romanticism—explores German philosophical theories of marriage from Kant to Nietzsche. Another, Tristan’s Shadow: Sexuality and the Total Work of Art, deals with eroticism in German opera after Wagner. In turn, his Four-Handed Monsters ties the practice of four-hand piano playing to ideologies about gender, labor, and the family in nineteenth-century Europe. In addition, he has published articles on opera, film, poetry, as well as literature and scandal. He writes on popular culture, technology and politics for national and international publications.
