The newly-funded ESRC South West Doctoral Training Partnership (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 this 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?
