Leave a comment


A two-day Symposium with Isabelle Stengers and Goldsmiths academics

18 May 2016
2:00pm – 6:00pm
PSH 314, Professor Stuart Hall Building

These two events will explore the development of Isabelle Stengers’ work, and will engage with her in conversations about many of her influential concepts and propositions. The two days will consist of brief interventions by Goldsmiths staff members that will focus around a selection of her most recent essays. These will be followed by conversations with Stengers as well as with members of the audience.

Each day of discussions will explore specific aspects of Stengers’ work. The first day will centre around Stengers’ development of a speculative philosophy concerned with a risky and situated experimentation with possibles, as well as her plea for slow science.

Discussants: Luciana Parisi (Cultural Studies), Martin Savransky (Sociology), and Alberto Toscano (Sociology)
