"The Centre Everywhere: Fin-de-Siècle Anarchism and the Emergence of Global Consciousness"

Pascale Siegrist, Fung Global Fellow, Princeton University


There is no pre-circulated paper for this workshop. To attend, RSVP to by email to Pablo Pryluka at ppryluka@princeton.edu.

Siegrist obtained her Ph.D. from the University of Konstanz in 2018, having previously studied in Paris, Moscow and Cambridge. She has since held fellowships at the Global Intellectual History Graduate School at the Freie Universität Berlin and at the European University Institute in Florence. Her research deals with the “global” thought of key figures in the anarchist movement in France, Russia and across the globe. Taking the historical overlap between anarchism and geography as a starting point, her work explores themes such as cosmopolitanism, space, federalism and geopolitics in anarchist theory. At Princeton, she will finish her first monograph on how Élisée Reclus, Pëtr Kropotkin and other fin-de-siècle thinkers sought to develop anarchism into a form of “world knowledge” that was to raise global consciousness and unite humankind.
