In general, social as well as economic crises can be described in social theoretical terms as inherent contradictions of neoliberalism. Nevertheless, anti-hegemonic movements, often with reference to an apparent contradiction between identity and class politics, are presented as incompatible. In this research tutorial, we would like to examine how these movements challenge the hegemonic system of 'neoliberalism,' what crises they address, and to what extent they can actually influence the social structure. During the course of the tutorial, theory sessions and group research phases will alternate.
The tutorial is primarily aimed at students from disciplines such as philosophy, gender studies, sociology, cultural studies, or political science, but we are also happy to welcome participants from other disciplines. Since this tutorial is intended to provide an opportunity for students to conduct their own research, it is suitable for students in their third semester of undergraduate study or higher. The first session will be held digitally via Zoom, for more information please visit moodle. If you are not a student at HU, you need to create a guest account.
