Zizek Live

I stumbled upon the perfect way to spend a few good hours in the office, not working, but at least learning something... Video recorded lectures (most of them are about an hour long) by famous people like Slavoj Zizek, Bhikhu Parekh, Stuart Hall, Chantelle Mouffe and others at this link. They were all presented at a conference called "Democracy Unrealized" in Vienna, 2001. From there you can also navigate to lectures by some other, equally famous speakers in Berlin - same year, same theme. Zizek comments on a "great slander" against him, namely that he had recently started writing about movies he had never seen. Not true, he says: "I have been doing this for more than ten years!"
