New Radical Subjectivities: Re-thinking Agency for the 21st Century

The University of Nottingham, UK
Friday, September 19th, 2008

Keynote Speaker â€" Professor Peter Hallward (Middlesex University)

This one day conference for postgraduate students and early career
researchers explores recent articulations of subjectivity and political
agency in critical theory and cultural studies. The continued ascent of
neo-liberalism and economic globalisation, along with postmodern and
poststructuralist theorising around subjectivity, potentially sets a
dangerously de-politicised subject against the expanding forces and
inequalities of contemporary capitalism.

National Central University Journal of Humanities

After three hundred years of modernization, the west has been proclaimed
as having developed into the new era of postmodern. It signified another
great change in human society. In contrast to the emphasis of
rationality or subjectivity of modernization, this new era seems to
uphold individuality, including the relentless pursue of individual
freedom, self-determination, and refuses to be subjected by the values of
the nation or society. It sometimes acts quite remarkably irrational and
heralds that everything goes! It comes close to extreme irrational,
irresponsible and radical liberal individualism. Is postmodern a new
mileage of human development? A new era? A brave new world after the

Contemporary Transformations
The UKNMFS in Association with University of Westminster, UK
 23rd May 2009 â€" 24th May 2009

A significant characteristic of artistic movements is the reconfiguration,
adaptation and transformation of texts. The focus of this conference is
the appropriation and conversion of existing artistic works for use in a
contemporary vogue. This ambition to ‘make it new’ in tandem with the
politics and intentions behind the transformation has led to the emergence
of startling works of contemporary art.
