‘Critical Theory in a closing and violent world’
15 May 5pm, University of Bath 5 West, room 2.4
John Holloway, Werner Bonefeld, Ana Dinerstein and Theo Papadopoulos
The newly-funded ESRC SWDTP Standing Seminar in Critical Theory at the University of Bath, with the University of Bristol and the University of Exeter, is thrilled to announce their next event. The panellists will bring critical theory to bear on a contemporary global panorama in which the legitimisation of violence, xenophobia, misogyny and racism takes on new and alarming power. What does it mean to speak of a closing world? What are its political implications and those, in turn, of open critique? What openings can critical theory forge in support of emancipatory politics and their horizons?
