LSE Contemporary Turkish Studies plenary: "Politics of Emotions in Turkey and Its Connected Geographies"

Dear Colleagues,

A reminder that LSE Contemporary Turkish Studies' public events in the new
year kick off on Thursday, 11 January 2018, with a plenary on the occasion
of the interdisciplinary symposium "Politics of Emotions in Turkey and Its
Connected Geographies."

Please find further details below and do feel free to share them with your

*"Politics of Emotions in Turkey and Its Connected Geographies" *
*Speakers* (please click on names for speaker biographies): Yael
<> (University of Cambridge), Carel
Bertram <> (San Francisco State
University), Ayşe Parla <> (Sabanci
University / Institute for Advanced Study, Princeton), Bilgin Ayata
 (University of Basel).
*Chair:* Esra Özyürek
LSE Chair for Contemporary Turkish Studies).
Thursday, *11 January 2018* | *6-8pm* | *The Wolfson Theatre, New Academic
Building, **LSE*.

In Turkey politics is often emotional and emotions are highly politicised.
However, a closer look at public and political expressions of emotions
shows that distinctive emotions show salience at different decades and
under different political projects. In other words, emotions are
historically, politically, and socially situated. Passionately felt as well
as despised emotions are closely connected to micro and macro developments
people find themselves in. This plenary and the symposium it accompanies
aim to have a closer look at the politics of emotions and affect from an
interdisciplinary perspective. We seek to inquire the emotional and
affective aspects of the political, social, economic, religious, and
artistic fields in Turkey and its connected geographies. Our focus is
on the often invisible but highly effective hierarchies that structure the
various emotions arising from these fields and geographies. We ask, which
emotions are sanctioned or even actively cultivated and when? Which
emotions are rendered inappropriate or unacceptable and for whom? Among the
various relevant emotions, we are curious to explore the trajectories of
the following: fear, pride, hope, love, guilt, denial, resentment, anger,
suspicion, belonging, compassion, empathy, humiliation, respect, and trust.

This event has been conceived in collaboration with CEST (the Consortium
for European Symposia on Turkey) and supported by Stiftung Mercator.

As ever, admission is free, open to all, and on a first-come-first-served

Details of future public events are available via

Many thanks for your interest.

All the best

"Pragmatics of the Earth", Didier Debaise (ULB) at Unit of Play | 25th Jan 4.30-6.30pm

Dear colleagues,

happy new year!

I am delighted to invite you to the 3rd session of the 2017/2018 Unit of Play Pluralistic Variations lecture series. Everyone is welcome! Please share widely

Thursday 25th January | 4.30-6.30pm | Richard Hoggart Building (RHB) 150, Goldsmiths, University of London
Didier Debaise (Université Libre de Bruxelles)
Pragmatics of the Earth
Discussant: Prof Jennifer Gabrys (Sociology)
Organiser: Dr. Martin Savransky (Sociology)

My starting assumption is the following: The moderns have invented a concept of nature in order to inhabit the earth, thus identifying two things that should without a doubt have been strictly separated. It seems to me that this hypothesis can serve as a guide which allows accentuating an ensemble of transformations which have been developing over the past decades, starting with operations of reciprocal capture between anthropology and metaphysics concerning the subject of the various ways of inhabiting the earth. It has today become paramount to question the particularly modern invention of nature not only because it defines the status and the function of the main categories at the basis of modern thought and its contemporary heritage – even where they are not explicitly concerned with nature – , but also because it constitutes a necessary condition for reflecting upon the consequences linked to the "new climatic regime". I will proceed in two steps: first of all I will establish a genealogy of the constitution of nature and its effects; secondly I will proceed to setting up another manner for the articulation of beings, another metaphysics that takes as its starting point the concept of precarity.

Didier Debaise is a permanent researcher at the Fonds National de la Recherche Scientifique (FNRS) and director of the Centre of Philosophy at the Free University of Brussels (ULB) where he teaches contemporary philosophy. He is the co-founder, with I. Stengers, of the Groupe d'études constructivistes (Geco). His main areas of research are contemporary forms of speculative philosophy, theories of events, and links between American pragmatism and French contemporary philosophy. He is the author of numerous books, including (most recently translated to English), Nature as Event (Duke 2017) and Speculative Empiricism (Edinburgh University Press). He is currently working on a new book titled Pragmatiques de la Terre.
