Subject: [D-G] EVENT: The Future of the Radical Thinker


Where are all the Radical Thinkers?
Tuesday 20th May, Queen Elizabeth 
Hall, London, 7:30pm
 
Tickets: =A312
Our leading thinkers discuss the 
history and future of radical thought at this centrepiece event in 
the 
Southbank series 'All Power to the Imagination'. After the 
events of 1968 there was a dramatic rise in 
the popularity of 
radical theory, but in the 21st century it seems to be on the wane - 
is it still 
useful? Has its utopianism been found lacking after the 
collapse of the Soviet Union and the rise of 
neo-liberalism? Where 
is the next generation of radical thinkers? A distinguished panel of 
authors from 
Verso's acclaimed Radical Thinkers series discuss the 
context in which radical thought evolved in the 
1960s and debate its 
future.
PANELLISTS: 
Peter Dews, author of Logics of Disintegration: 
Poststructuralist Thought and the Claims of Critical 
Theory
Ernesto 
Laclau, author of Emancipation(s) and On Populist Reason
Jacqueline 
Rose, author of Sexuality in the Field of Vision and Last 
Resistance
G=F6ran Therborn, author of What Does the Ruling Class Do 
When it Rules? and From Marxism to Post-Marxism?

The event is 
chaired by Patrick Wright, author of Iron Curtain: From Stage to Cold 
War.
