The Politics of Desire: Engaging the “Present” through Various Domains

This interdisciplinary course examines the proliferation of politics and protestations in various places that seek changes in contexts that resisted it. Taking “desire” as an open conceptual domain that brings together the affective and the (ir)rational, the philosophical and the psychological, the present and the future, this course will explore the construction of human conditions of what people want, what they imagine as beneficial, and what they strive for through the fields of politics, economy, philosophical, and the aesthetics.
