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.

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
