The 16th of March, Imanol Galfarsoro, well-known collaborator of Lapiko Kritikoa ("basque critical stew") and member of the Department of Sociology and Social Policy of the University of Leeds, will give a lecture in one of the Research Seminars organised by the Hispanic Studies Department of the University of Birmingham.
The title of the seminar is the following: "Cultural Theory and Identity Politics: Who said Basque difference?"
"The contents of this paper are located along the flow of a transitional intellectual movement that is, slowly but surely, shifting emphasis from identity and cultural politics to political culture, including a newly re-invigorated critique of political economy. Along repeated appeals to the virtues of politics and political analysis proper, the form that this paper takes, on the other hand, relies on the interventionist Imaginary of my own political subjectivity. Hence, it is from within the concrete perspective of this imaginary dimension that I seek to argue for the possibility of an absolute political indifference to Basque cultural difference."
The seminar will take place in the Strathcona building, Lecture Room 7, at 4.00pm. Refreshments will be available after the seminar.
