A series of lectures offered to postgraduates as part of the Researcher Development Programme.
Contemporary theorists write against the background of an intellectual tradition of critique which characterised the European Enlightenment. This course offers ten introductory lectures to a number of thinkers who have engaged with the question of critique, anticipating it, undercutting its premises, or otherwise considering its limits.
These sessions build on the first series of Tradition of Critique lectures (held in semester one of academic year 2017/18) but don’t require familiarity with the thinkers covered there: rather we offer a solid introduction to issues that sit in the background to critical concerns of much contemporary research in the arts, humanities and social sciences.
This series of lectures takes place on Mondays throughout 2017/2018’s semester two, at A48 Sir Clive Granger Building. Attendees should register for the series at the first lecture. Those who attend seven or more sessions will receive a certificate of attendance.
