For almost a century, “Political Theology” has named a set of inquires into the secular ideologies that legitimate power and secure social cohesion. How should these inquiries adapt to the specificity of late late capitalism, and what light can their answers shed on the superglue sustaining the preposterous contradictions of the present?
InterCcECT presents a mini-seminar on these and other issues at the intersection of politics, economy, and religion with Professor Adam Kotsko. We’ll read selections from his latest book Neoliberalism’s Demons: On the Political Theology of Late Capital (Stanford UP, 2018).
Join us Tuesday 30 October, 5pm, at the UIC Institute for the Humanities (Stevenson Hall, 701 S. Morgan; Blue Line: UIC Halsted).
