Love is revolting. It both inspires revulsion and has revolutionary potential. From its sticky, intimate moments of boundary-crossing and home-making to its revolutionary potential in the arguments of Charles Fourier, Alexandra Kollontai, Martin Luther King Jr., and the ecosexuals, love strikes us as an ambivalent concept of pivotal importance to humans. In recent years, a growing number of thinkers have suggested that love be critically reinvigorated in both social and political thought and action. And yet, it continues to revolt (us), and this reinvigorating has yet to be done robustly and systematically.
Love is Revolting is a two-day interdisciplinary symposium at the School of Advanced Studies (SAS), University of Tyumen that invites scholars across the disciplines to engage in discussions about love. Among other topics, we encourage discussion about love and its connection to matter and bodies; its revolutionary potential for imagining new futures and modes of belonging; its ambivalence, slipperiness and grotesqueness as both a practice and concept; its relationship to power and subject-formation; and the emergence of new forms of loving in our techno-ecological age.
- How does the notion of critical thinking evolve historically, what is its (changing) relationship with the notions of critique, critical thought and disinterested scientific enquiry?
- Can critical thinking thrive in the era of political polarization?
- What does critical thinking involve beyond a set of analytic techniques, such as logic and argument analysis?
- Is developing critical thinking still the major goal of multidisciplinary education and, if so, how can it be taught effectively to contemporary students? Does AI and digital technologies challenge us to change the way we conceptualize critical thinking?
- Which lessons from psychology and cognitive science could give us some insights for teaching critical thinking?
