Cultural Studies explores the political dynamics of contemporary culture. It does this from a variety of angles, both empirical and theoretical. In contemporary debates the question often emerges of how we can lead different lives as responses to political, environmental and economical crisis. This course will focus on different ways to think about actions and relations (summed up as ethics) and what it means to change the life one lives in a rapidly changing world.

This eight week course will focus on action from various social and philosophical perspectives. The possibility to change lies in the possibility to act differently. However, as can be quickly imagined, this is not sufficient for change: people will also need to build different relations, or: forms of life. This course will look at philosophers and social theorists that have articulated the need for change from a variety of social positions. We will discuss latinx and indigenous philosophies on change and world making, and draw on Black feminisms to think through relation, as well as finding connections with the European philosophical tradition.


This is an 8 week course running from 14th May to 2nd July 2019. Classes take place on Tuesday evenings from 6.30-9pm
