Emory President’s 2012 State of the University Address

Emory President James Wagner gave his annual State of the University address last week.  For those, like me, who weren’t able to attend, here are some links.

First, click here to read the story in the student newspaper plus comments.

University President James W. Wagner engaged in heated discussions with faculty, staff and students at the ninth annual State of the University Address Tuesday evening.

Second, a link to the youtube video of the address itself (minus the heated question and answer session).

And third a link to an audio file of the Q&A.

I am professor of philosophy at Emory University and editor of the Kettering Review. My latest book, Fear of Breakdown: Politics and Psychoanalysis, explores what is behind the upsurge of virulent nationalism and intransigent politics across the world today. My other writings include Democracy and the Political Unconscious; Habermas, Kristeva, and Citizenship; Julia Kristeva; and numerous articles and book chapters. Edited volumes include Standing with the Public: the Humanities and Democratic Practice and a special issue of the philosophy journal Hypatia on feminist engagements in democratic theory. I am also the author of the entry on feminist political philosophy in the online Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy and well into my next book project on democratic public life.


  1. I seldom leave responses, but after reading a great deal of remarks on Emory Presidents 2012 State of the
    University Address | gonepublic: philosophy, politics, & public life.

    I do have 2 questions for you if it’s allright. Is it only me or does it appear like some of the comments come across as if they are written by brain dead people? 😛 And, if you are posting at other online sites, I would like to follow anything new you have to post. Would you make a list of every one of all your shared sites like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?
