Vertigo: Fake news/real theory

Vertigo: Fake news/real theory

This seminar is presented by the Centre for Law, Arts and the Humanities.

The crisis consists precisely in the fact that the old is dying and the new cannot be born; in this interregnum a great variety of morbid symptoms appear. – Gramsci

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.

The program is available here.

This event will feature short papers that make an intervention or articulate an argument with succinct vigour, leaving plenty of room for lively and even contentious discussion.

This program is generously supported by ANU College of Law alumnus Dr Myint Zan.
