Temporalities, subjectivities, politics II


Temporalities, subjectivities, politics II
Seminar 2019-2020
Paris 8 University
2, Rue de la Liberté – 93526 Saint-Denis


The proposition looks back on recent conflicts and social movements and their genealogies, as they have drawn new geographies across borders in the context of globalization, from corpora produced in their present and of which the People’s Spring or transnational feminist movements could provide the model.
Here, by continuing an approach initiated in 2018-2019, the methodology of the seminar opens up to a material relationship to these corpora, written, spoken, audiovisual, etc. where the intervention appropriates inter- and transdisciplinary gestures that make it possible to organize critical discourses and subjective representations.
At the same time, we will address the way in which the languages of these corpora question the forms of spatialization of history that we have inherited. This question of forms of historicization rather than an acknowledgment of the disappearance of history in a globalized present, will open up to that of its contemporary forms of writing, and to the epistemologies of the archive.
It is by crossing scales that would refer as much to points of view, paths, and singular experiences, as to collective dimensions, that we will approach the notions of temporalities, subjectivities, and political invention and intervention.
