“…there are no witnesses to changes of epoch. The epochal turning is an imperceptible frontier, bound to no crucial date or event.” The present is notoriously difficult to diagnose. Are we living at a decisive turning point for global and European history, politics and law? Are we witnesses to a new epoch? Or perhaps we just […]
“Control: European Society for Literature, Science, and the Arts Conference”, Stockholm University; Stockholm, Sweden; Aula Magna * located within the Frescati Campus. The 10th (SLSAeu) European Society for Literature, Science and the Arts Conference.
This symposium is interested in pursuing some of the implications of the “biological turn” in the human and social sciences as they touch upon jurisprudence and legal theory. Many studies show that with the increasing use of biological markers of identity (genetic, biometric, etc.), the traditional category of the legal (and moral) person is increasingly becoming unable to articulate or track the new interfaces between life and law. This symposium thematizes the empirical and normative transformations in the ideas of legal personhood, legal form, and subjective rights caused or motivated by the biologization of law and politics.

Talking about Walter Benjamin in today’s Palestine is a political act. This project is part of the attempt to break the de facto cultural and academic boycott of Palestine, implemented and enforced by the occupation regime and its multi-layered web of checkpoints, territorial zones and other juridical-administrative measures. The project is comprised of three events: an opening event on Benjamin’s thought and life (Dec. 6), a workshop on key texts of Benjamin (Dec. 7-9), and an international conference (Dec. 10/11).
The Foucault Madness Conference is back for a second year! This year’s theme brings into critical light how current norms of cyber-based speech-acts create new technologies of selfhood. Many early, and utopian, post-structural theorists of cyberspace, such as Donna Haraway (“A Cyborg Manifesto”), surmised that digital disembodiment might mean greater liberation from the categorizing limits of race, class, and gender.

Recently a debate has emerged about the “Italian difference.” In Italy, there is a growing consensus that what makes Italian Theory different is its permanent opposition to state and biopolitical forms of power, grounded engagement in the critique of capitalism and an internal disposition of productive conflict. Antonio Negri claims that what distinguishes Italian Theory is the constituent affirmation of difference, which does not lead to separation and isolation but to resistance and creative transformation (2005). Whereas Roberto Esposito argues that Italian Theory is characterized by the immanentization of antagonism because at its core it is a theory of conflict and struggle (2012).
