Past Events


The Kristeva Circle is the first society to be dedicated entirely to advancing research on or influenced by French philosopher, psychoanalyst and novelist Julia Kristeva.

The inaugural meeting will be held at Siena College on October 11-13, 2012. Prominent Kristeva scholars from across the world will gather at Siena to participate in panels on topics ranging from art, literature and photography to feminine spirituality, human vulnerability, and a roundtable discussion on Kristeva's most recent book on the severed head.

Students, faculty and staff are welcome to participate in all sessions.
