A colloquium with Cathy Caruth (Samuel Candler Dobbs Professor of Comparative Literature and English, Emory University). This follows her lecture at CRASSH on Thursday 10 March.

Professor Caruth will be talking about her paper Lying and History. The reports on Saddam’s weapons of mass destruction decided that the US invasion of Iraq could start. Today, we know that these weapons were fiction, an image produced to justify the war. Discussing Hannah Arendt and the Vietnam war, Cathy Caruth shows that this type of political imagery has a long tradition in the US.
