Nikita Dhawan: »The Future Is a Risk Masquerading as a Promise«
Thesis lecture: Wednesday, September 23, 2020, 7 pm
Online conversation: Wednesday, October 7, 2020, 7 pm, moderated by María do Mar Castro Varela
We are pleased to welcome Nikita Dhawan, one of the most distinguished speakers in the field of political theory and gender studies. In her lecture she will deal with the question of how to imagine a future that detaches itself from our imperialist past and present. Drawing on historical positions such as Vladimir Lenin, Theodor Adorno and Jacques Derrida, she approaches the question »What is to be done?«, to which she attempts to respond with Angela Davis’ research on the conditions for social change.
