Offering a one- or two-year option to earn an MA, the Aesthetics and Politics program focuses on the multiplicity of ways in which the aesthetic and the political intertwine. Students specialize in one of three areas of concentration: critical theory, media and urban studies, or global studies. From political art to the aestheticization of politics, and from phenomenological, post/structuralist, to speculative materialist theories of culture, politics, and society, this program operates at the cutting edge of creative and critical practice today.

 

Faculty include Arne De Boever (director), Douglas Kearney, Chandra Khan, Norman Klein, Martín Plot, and James Wiltgen. Spring 2012 visiting faculty is Kate Elswit.

 

Recent visiting speakers have included Alain Badiou, Andrew Arato, Ernesto Laclau, Hans Haacke, Sam Weber, Diedrich Diederichsen, Bonnie Honig, Fred Moten, Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak, Jodi Dean, and Bernard Stiegler.
