Arne de Boever – Financial Realism

19:00MerveCrellestraße 2210827 Berlin
Ausschnitt This talk looks at the representation of the economy in 20th- and 21st-century "finance novels". It starts from the peculiar fact that more often than not, finance novels have very little to say about finance. The best example here remains Bret Easton Ellis's American Psycho: far from teaching its readers anything about the economy, it focuses solely on the psychosis of its main character, Patrick Bateman. Like the psychotic disavowal of reality it documents, American Psycho thus itself... Mehr

Mapping and Picturing

9:00-17:00Haus der Kulturen der WeltJohn-Foster-Dulles-Allee 1010557 Berlin
Ausschnitt Session one: Mapping and Picturing"For the perceptive nominalist, the varieties of mapping are as multiple as simple matter-of-factual qualities and relations." (Wilfrid Sellars, Naturalism and Ontology, p.60)What Sellars calls 'mapping' is closely tied to his theory of picturing. In this seminar, I want to investigate the link between mapping and picturing. Picturing does not consist in a relation of resemblance between representation and represented. It consists in the structural... Mehr

The Long Con / The Straw Astronaut

9:00-17:00Haus der Kulturen der WeltJohn-Foster-Dulles-Allee 1010557 Berlin
Ausschnitt Session one: The Long Con (9:00-12:00)Design inevitably entails an engagement with the logic of the plot, and this session will investigate what this abrupt and unlikely claim might mean. Even the most cursory consideration shows 'plot' to be a strange term, unusually rich. It can refer to an architectural site, as in the ground-plot of a building, as well as a workshop drawing or analytic chart; it also indexes a sequence of fictional events strung into a narrative, and, simultaneously, the...

Feminism and Technology After Firestone / Re-Engineering Embodiment

9:00-17:00Haus der Kulturen der WeltJohn-Foster-Dulles-Allee 1010557 Berlin
Ausschnitt Session one: Feminism and Technology after Firestone (9:00-12:00)There is a longstanding feminist interest in engaging with science and technology, from the early agitation surrounding the under-representation of women within the STEM industries, to more recent technofeminist work addressing 'the mutually shaping relationship between gender and technology, in which technology is both a source and a consequence of gender relations' (Wajcman, 2004: p. 107). Within this already lively field,... Mehr

Diagonalisation in the Space of Reasons / D. in the Space of Sex

9:00-17:00Haus der Kulturen der WeltJohn-Foster-Dulles-Allee 1010557 Berlin
Ausschnitt Session one: Diagonalization in the Space of Reasons (9:00-12:00)The notion of "the space of reasons" -- if taken as more than a figure of speech – makes demands on reasons' structure and forms of articulation. And, conversely, how we conceive the structure of reasoning constrains our efforts to conceive the "space" or horizon in which they unfold. In the first session of this seminar, I will be examining, in as distilled and minimalistic a fashion as possible, a certain kind of conflict that... Mehr

The Critique of Folk-Politics / The Future of the Left

9:00-17:00Haus der Kulturen der WeltJohn-Foster-Dulles-Allee 1010557 Berlin
Ausschnitt Session one: The Critique of Folk Politics (9:00-12:00)This first section will examine the concept of folk politics as it is embodied in contemporary radical political practice. It will start with an initial overview of the problems of folk politics, before moving onto a historical analysis of the rise of folk political thinking. It will set the concept as a response to determinate political problems that emerged post-1968, but that has today become itself a political problem. Taking folk... Mehr
