Video Presentation: Jeff Alexander at Bar Ilan Center for Cultural Sociology

CCS Director Jeffrey Alexander presented his work on “The Performativity of Objects” in front of over two-hundred participants worldwide in a zoom lecture hosted by our sister  center the Bar-Ilan Center for Cultural Sociology (CCS-BIU), the Interdisciplinary Program for Hermeneutics and Cultural Studies, and the Department for Sociology and Anthropology at Bar-Ilan University.

This paper renews Jeff’s icon work for the first time in a decade. It presents the model he has been developing and brings in empirical discussions of design and art reviews.

The CCS thanks our partners at Bar Ilan for making arrangements to host this as a Zoom meeting after the Covid-19 pandemic thwarted Jeff’s planned trip to Israel to present his work in person. In particular, we are grateful to CCS Faculty Fellow Hizky Shoham for facilitating the event and providing the video.
