This coming Wednesday, 27 May, we will be hosting our last doctoral seminar for this academic year. Please click here for a PDF with further details of time, location, the abstracts and short bios of the students involved. This time, we will address the question, "What constitutes otherness?" from the various philosophical, theological and socio-political perspectives being researched by doctoral students associated with the Centre for Religion and Political Culture. Paper topics include Dostoyevski's Demons, a critique of Milbank's recent discussion of Hegel in the Monstrocity of Christ, Bishop Ting's understanding of distinctive "Chinese Christianity," an analysis of Carl Schmitt and Mau Tse-tung's understanding of the friend enemy distinction, the concept of otherness in relation to effective action research, and myth-making as the boundary-defining mechanism in the formation of national identity and the politics of memory. Lastly, if you're interested in participating in future seminars, we will kick off the next academic year and welcome new students to the Centre in October 2009.
This coming February, we're hosting our first doctoral seminar for students at the CRPC and some of its affiliated centres here at the University of Manchester. This will be a relatively informal chance for everyone to share current research interests and make new connections both relationally and intellectually. For further details on the kinds of research taking place at the CRPC, we've posted two PDFs which list the abstracts as well as short biographies of those attending. Short bios are also available in our study here pages in the menu bar above.
