(In)determinate Subjects: Indeterminacy & Justice
Friday 22 June 2012, 1000-1800
FASS Meeting Room 2
Increasing attention has been given to exploring how to account for entities that are both between time and between natures, such as subject/objects, forms of biotic, technoscientific and inhuman life. This conversation will ask: In what ways can indeterminate entities be observed within (and in excess of) the material/practical conditions of their emergence? How do these conditions create different kinds of responsibility(and new vocabularies which trouble and expand the contours of 'responsibility') which we may not have yet anticipated? How can we imagine alternative forms of accounting that apprehend the ontological and temporal conditions of precarity and justice? By exploring these and further questions we
hope to develop alternative forms of experimentality with human-inhuman configurations that take account of indeterminacy and move us towards a more enduring postrelational politics.
