48. Inns­bru­cker Gen­der Lec­ture mit Ayça Çubukçu (24. Januar 2017)

Thinking against humanity - Ayça Çubukçu, London School of Economics and Political Science
Kommentar: Adham Hamed, Institut für Politikwissenschaft
Moderation: Andrea Urthaler, Dissertantin am Institut für Geschichtswissenschaft

In this lecture, Ayça Çubukçu will reflect on the modern concept of humanity. Engaging with Hannah Arendt, Malcolm X, and Frantz Fanon in particular, she will explore humanity’s capacity to designate a collective subject to be defended and redeemed through various ethico-political projects on the one hand, and an apparently self-evident, all-embracing species on the other.
