Radical Critique, the New-Right & Post-Centrist Identity Politics

ASCA Reading Group organized by Marc Tuters and Daniel de Zeeuw. In the aftermath of the global populist insurgency as well as the reported decline in commitment to democratic values amongst youth in "advanced" liberal societies, this reading group focuses on radical right-wing political philosophy

Well aware of longstanding attempts on the new-right to co-opt elements of the critique of capitalism and of modernity, we nevertheless seek to move beyond the 18th century idea of a left-right dichotomy in order to explore an expanded conception of the canon of radical political thought. While based in new media studies, the reading group is interdisciplinary in its focus, with an expressed interest in aesthetics and tactics. With the expressed permission of the participants sessions of this reading group may be recorded and posted online in the form of a podcast. (Those interested in participating should contact info@oilab.eu for details on when and where we meet.)
