Critical Social Theory Cluster off to Strong StartJanuary 23, 2013
The Critical Social Theory Cluster, co-run by Natalie Bormann, Academic Specialist in Political Science, was created to facilitate a vibrant intellectual culture in radical thinking and social critique. – which can be thought of as covering interactions between the explanatory, the normative and the ideological dimensions of social and political thought.
This is just a reminder that the Critical Social Theory Research Cluster (formerly known as the IR Reading Group) meets again this
Friday, January 25th from 5 pm- 7 pm in the Lounge at the Humanities Center, 4th floor, Renaissance Park.
At our last meeting, we discussed the influence of critical theory in the 60s, reading a special issue on May ’68.
This meeting, we will zoom in on the 70s/80s and the reception of the ‘postmodern’ turn.
Reading: We encourage you to read across a sampling of essays from the journal Boundary 2 – you can find links to the articles on our website here [see in the Meetings announcements].
We hope to see many of you there. There will be food and drinks!
