Agamben translations: An announcement

I have been offered a contract to translate two works by Agamben in the coming year: Opus dei: Archeologia dell’ufficio and Altissima povertà: Regole monastiche e forma di vita. The two volumes represent sections 2.5 and 4.1 of the Homo Sacer series, respectively. Opus dei: An Archeology of Office is an investigation of the way that Christian liturgical concepts have informed modern ethical concepts, while The Highest Poverty: Monastic Rules and Form of Life presents Christian monasticism as an attempt to conceive of a form of life that would overcome the opposition between life and rule.

We have agreed that I will complete these translations by the end of the calendar year, so now I know how I’ll be spending my summer vacation.

  1. Congratulations. I’m eagerly awaiting both. I have a million ideas about Agamben and habit, and now I’m worried he’s just going to say them all in THP.
