The Lesson of Althusser, The Ignorant Schoolmaster, On the Shores of Politics, Disagreement, The Nights of Labor, The Philosopher and His Poor, Hatred of Democracy, The Names of History,The Flesh of Words,Film Fables, and, most recently, The Future of the Image.
Oliver introduced Rancière’s February 2008 lecture, “What Makes Images Unacceptable?,” part of the PNCA+FIVE Idea Studios series at Pacific Northwest College of Art. Oliver is Assistant Professor in Intermedia, Contemporary Art Theory, MFA Contemporary Theory Seminar at PNCA. She is the co-author of _The Road to Martyrs’ Square_.
