Book Presentation: Re-Activating Critical Thinking in the Midst of Necropolitical Realities: For Radical Change
Presentation of the book volume edited by Marina Gržinić and Jovita Pristovšek
Re-Activating Critical Thinking in the Midst of Necropolitical Realities: For Radical Change assembles 23 articles that develop strategies for radical change. At the request of the publisher, Marina Gržinić decided to combine doctoral positions in philosophy from Austria and the former Yugoslavia and, together with Jovita Pristovšek, to expand the selection of positions. The authors are scholars who do not necessarily collaborate or know each other, but who are currently forming a radical structure that is viral in thought production and reflective on the current global recalibration of social relations, brought about by the necropolitical and necrocapitalist governmentality emerging worldwide.
Taking part in the presentation are contributors from Austria:
Yela An, Diana Bulzan, İklim Doğan, Kyungrim Lim Jang, Taida Kusturica, Cathérine Lehnerer, Mika Maruyama
Moderation: Marina Gržinić and Jovita Pristovšek
