Module content and teaching

Principal aims

Primarily, this module aims to critically engage with the ideas and theories that largely define our ‘modern’ conception of justice as a basis for political society. To challenge conceptions of the ‘normal’, to critically interrogate the theoretical premises (closures), and thus the institutional frameworks, that define political existence is to open up different possibilities of thinking through the problems of ‘injustice’ in the world. How we think ‘justice’ relates to how we might think ‘politics’ and its possibilities. The aim of the module is to provide such a provocation to (un/re)think.
