RHEA Research Seminar "Resilience. Gendered Subjects in Times of Neoliberalism" (Sarah Bracke)

Campus: Brussels Humanities, Sciences & Engineering campus
Pleinlaan 5, 5th floor
Room 5.61 (Van Gogh Room)
Lunch Seminar

Resilience is a powerful idea(l) whose deployment spans the macro-level of ecological and economic systems to the micro-level of selves, and the complex circuits of power between them. What does an ethics of self that privileges resilience look like? Which subjects does it shape under its auspices? This presentation takes resilience as a point of departure to tell yet another tale of neoliberal governmentality, and explores the gendered character of this neoliberal mode of subjectification.

Presentation by prof. dr. Sarah Bracke (University of Amsterdam/VUB)
