Seventh CAPPE Seminar Series in Critical Theory and Politics
This research seminar hosted by CAPPE and the College of Arts and Humanities is aimed at staff and research students interested in contemporary politics, philosophy, ethics and critical theory. Each year we focus on different issues and theorists. This year, in preparation for the annual Political Studies Association Conference (hosted by CAPPE and colleagues in Politics) we read the work of a number of contemporary authors who will be visiting Brighton in March. Visitors include Simona Forti (on evil), Sam Chambers (on understanding the social formation), Jodi Dean (on crowds and parties) and Todd May (on non-violent resistance.)
In the summer term we turn to the works of Fred Moten, and to contemporary Italian feminist and bio-political theories, in preparation for two conferences over the summer. All members of the Universities of Sussex and Brighton are welcome to participate. Times of the sessions vary through the year so please do check. Each session will begin with an introductory overview of the arguments followed by close scrutiny of passages in the texts under discussion.
If you would like to attend please email the academic coordinator of these sessions Dr Clare Woodford on firstname.lastname@example.org.
