THE SECOND ANNUAL MEETING AND INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE OF THE CONSORTIUM FOR RESEARCH IN POLITICAL THEORY (CRIPT)
FUTURE PROSPECTS ON POLITICS, CULTURE AND GOVERNANCE
Etymologically drawn upon the Greek krinein (judgment or decision), the extended semantic scope of the concept crisis implies a double meaning. On the one hand, crisis implies the problematic impossibility of stimulating judgment, decision or differentiation. On the other hand, the concept crisis also indicates an opportunity, a potentiality for actualization or an open horizon of further possibilities.
Regarding the political phenomenon, the crisis today denotes the problematic loss of truth (aletheia), along with the liquidation of meaning, affection, and participation in times of hyper-technological and hyper-industrial transformation of life and living. As regard to the question of culture, today’s crisis entails the conversion of psychic and collective forms of individuation which reflects the major transposition of memory, culture, society, arts and technics vis-à-vis global digital reticulation. In the realm of governance, the crisis implies the rise of algorithmic forms of governmentality and the emergence of new cognitive modalities of functionality, efficiency, and administration.
Combining aforementioned realms of crisis today, The Second Annual Meeting will include thematic panels and workshops focusing on the future directions on politics, culture and governance with a rich spectrum of debates on democracy, populism, identity, gender and queer, biopolitics, noöpolitics, culture, society, religion, memory, arts, technics and technology, governance and the refugee crisis, public policy, governmentality and comparative governance.
