These videos record several papers and the keynote lecture from the 2018 Castoriadis in the Antipodes Symposium. Continuing the tradition into its 11th year, the event celebrated and examined the intellectual contribution of Cornelius Castoriadis. Speakers include Craig Browne (Sydney University), Peter Murphy (La Trobe University), Sean McMorrow (Monash University) and Vrasidas Karalis (University of Sydney. This event was presented by Thesis Eleven Forum for Social and Political Theory and held at the Melbourne Greek Cultural Centre, December 2018.
Thesis Eleven Forum for Social and Political Theory public lecture delivered by Professor Michael A. Peters (Beijing Normal University). This lecture coincided with a week of workshops and conference on Global Education co-hosted by the International Education Association Australia.
We call for papers under the broad horizons of these arcs, modernity and civilisation, working within and beyond the fields engaged by Thesis Eleven over the last forty years. Agnes Heller’s theories of modernity and its competing logics offer one frame of reference. The Western discourses she worked within also reach back to the Greeks and beyond. The narratives and interests inhabited by our Chinese colleagues reach into new modernities and back to long Chinese traditions of civilisation. These are possible parameters for papers. We are open to suggestion for other ideas.
