Fay Gale Centre member Associate Professor Katie Barclay has a new book out, published by Cambridge University Press as part of the Elements in Histories of Emotions and the Sense series. Titled Academic Emotions: Feeling the Institution, the book draws on a rich array of writing about the modern academy by contemporary academics and explores the emotional dynamics of the academy as a disciplining institution, the production of the academic self, and the role of emotion in negotiating power in the ivory tower.
The Fay Gale Centre is delighted to invite you to the launch of Dr Jana Norman’s book Posthuman Legal Subjectivity: Reimagining the Human in the Anthropocene. Jana’s book draws on conceptual fields associated with the new sciences, including new materialisms and posthuman critical theory, to demonstrate that the naturalised hierarchy of humans over nature in the Western social imaginary is anything but natural. It then sets about constructing a counternarrative. It is an original and important analysis of the legal status of the human in the Anthropocene will be of great interest to those working in legal theory, jurisprudence, environmental law and the environmental humanities; as well as those with relevant interests in gender studies, cultural studies, feminist theory, critical theory and philosophy. When: Thursday, November 25th at 5:30pm, Where: Ingkarni Wardli, Level 7. RSVP to: email@example.com
