Does critical theory matter? To what extent do the works of modern or contemporary critical theorists afford insights into the crises and perplexities of the world we live in? In what ways are these analyses in cahoots or at odds, inadequate or partial, complementary or prophetic?
The ANU contemporary critical theory group is hosting a one-day seminar exploring law, art, politics, and society in the 21st century.
