Volume X of HA: The Journal of the Hannah Arendt Center for Politics and Humanities at Bard College focuses on how we can reinvigorate democracy. The journal includes seven essays that were originally given as talks at the Arendt Center's 2021 Conference, Revitalizing Democracy: Sortition, Citizen Power, and Spaces of Freedom. Essays by David Van Reybrouck, Schmuel Lederman, Michael MacKenzie, Hollie Russon Gilman, and Roger Berkowitz look specifically at citizen assemblies and deliberative models of democratic governance as new tools with which to bring new energy to modern democracy. Tracy Strong and James Barry Jr. situate modern democratic strategies within a larger history of democrat thinking in the United States. This volume of HA also includes an essay by Matthew Longo on Hannah Arendt as a storyteller and reviews of Samantha Hill's biography Hannah Arendt ( by Shaan Sachdev) and Marie Luise Knott's meditation on Arendt's thinking about race 370 Riverside Drive, 730 Riverside Drive: Hannah Arendt und Ralph Ellison (by Roger Berkowitz).
The Perils of Invention: Lying, Technology, and the Human Condition
Edited by Roger Berkowitz
The Perils of Invention is based on three Hannah Arendt Center Conferences: “Human Being in an Inhuman Age,” “Lying and Politics,” and “Truthtelling: Democracy in an Age without Facts.” Contributions written for these conferences are placed alongside many new essays that reflect on the ideas they raised. The result is a freshly invigorated investigation into these critical and timely themes. The authors have diverse backgrounds—Arendt scholars, public intellectuals, novelists, journalists, and business people—and include Uday Mehta, Marrianne Constable, Nicholson Baker, George Kateb, Marianne Constable, Linda M.G. Zerilli, Peg Birmingham, Davide Panagia, and many others.
