Berlin: Collectivity Beyond Identity


“Collectivity beyond Identity” Conference

Organized by the Center for Transdisciplinary Gender Studies at
Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin

Location: Senatssaal, Unter den Linden 6 (Berlin)
Date: 28th – 30th of June 2012

Modes of collectivity play an important role in numerous social and everyday contexts. Collectives form the basis of political practice and engagement as well as of economic and labor relations. Collectivity appears to be a particularly important notion in areas like feminist theorizing; this is especially so once the notion of the subject has been submitted to critical examination, and no longer construed as sovereign and isolated. After all, how might we rethink the notion of community and how can we conceive of collectivity, when the seemingly crucial aspect of collectivization – identity – has become the object of critical study?

Keynote Speakers:
Susanne Baer (Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin)
Linda Alcoff (Hunter College / The City University of New York)
Sabine Hark (Technische Universität Berlin)
Linda Zerilli (University of Chicago)
Adriana Cavarero (Università degli Studi di Verona)
