I first read ‘The Making and Unmaking of Strangers’ where it is republished in Postmodernity and its Discontents, a collection of wide-ranging and loosely connected essays. A form typical of this stage of his work. Some of them are transcripts from lectures delivered at invited and esteemed lectures (the Manchester Annual Peace Lecture, for instance), reflecting perhaps a new-found fame and notoriety. Thesis Eleven was clearly a testing ground, it seems, a collection of the like-minded, alongside Telos, Theory, Culture & Society and The Jewish Quarterly.

The virtual platform HPS.CESEE and Thesis Eleven warmly invite you to a public global book talk on the biography of Zygmunt Bauman. Natalia Aleksiun (Jena/New York) and Peter Beilharz (Melbourne) will join Izabela Wagner (Warsaw) to discuss her newly published biography of Zygmunt Bauman: Bauman. A Biography (Cambridge: Polity Press 2020).
In this special issue of Thesis Eleven, we are marking just over three years since the death of Zygmunt Bauman by bringing together some of the contributions to that programme in order to revisit, elaborate, and crucially to extend his intellectual archive.
