The newly-funded Standing Seminar in Critical Theory at the University of Bath, with the University of Bristol and the University of Exeter, within the ESRC South West Doctoral Training Partnership (SWDTP)
is thrilled to announce this event Critical Theory in a closing and violent world. See video:
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?
