Slavoj Zizek — Future School + GCTH Lecture Series 1: Critical Postmedia and Slavoj Zizek

This lecture series is launched to help connect Critical Postmedia Studies and a Future School Project to a broader audience. It is very noteworthy that we can begin this meaningful event with Slavoj. Undoubtedly, he is one of the most pre-eminent philosophers who have participated in many practical events and his new book about Hegel raises urgent and timely issues, preserving further interventions into the link between technology and capitalism in the pandemic situation.

Slavoj already wrote several books about Hegel and applied his interpretation of Hegelianism for analyzing current situations. He is one of the most prolific writers today and does not stop writing day and night. Slavoj published two books about the COVID-19 pandemic last year and many articles about global politics. Above all, his appeal to the reinvention of communism brings out various resonances across the world and inspires those who want to find out the alternative to global capitalism. As much as his previous works, by which he could gain international influences, controversy, substantial audience, his recent works of Hegel also embrace various spectrums around Marxism, psychoanalysis and poststructuralism.

In his new book, Hegel In a Wired Brain, Slavoj seems to continue his project by taking technological advancement such as AI. A central credo of this book is the void that makes a human being as the subject and its consequences for Singularity. He uses Hegel to let us understand what is happening around in terms of technology these days.

Ian Buchanan — Future School + GCTH Lecture Series 2: On Assemblages

We have Professor Ian Buchanan of Wollongong University in Australia who is going to discuss his new book Assemblage Theory. Ian is one of the leading figures in the field of Deleuze and Guattari studies in the English speaking world and has been pivotal in making the Deleuze and Guattari known to the academic communities across the world. He has travelled extensively to promote his work, visiting dozens of countries from South Africa, Latin America, the Orient and India to name but a few. Presumably every continent except Antarctica. We await a Deleuze conference on the moon. His research is focussed on raising critical questions about the prospects of schizoanalysis, which is the study of desire. The project is in some ways in crisis. It's in crisis because desire because the desire itself is in crisis. Why is it in crisis? Well, that is what his book Assemblage Theory traces and understands. That schizoanalysis must be focused on desire is one of the main tenets of his book.

Futurology of Schools

Futurology of Schools

Seoul, Online, Generative Dialogue

Moving from the architectonic design of the nation state toward a new model of schooling

Overview

This series of Generative Dialogues reaches towards an alternative form of schooling for the future, proposing a solution to the problem of modern education.

According to Immanuel Kant, the ultimate goal of the enlightened human being is to become cosmopolitan and eschew the limitations of national borders. However, systems of modern education have ultimately come to focus on the construction of the nation-state. Meanwhile, the current state of globalised life, of ontological migration, has laid bare the more disturbing facets of such Enlightenment ideals, among them the ubiquity of the refugee.

Architecture is not merely a method of building, but the mechanisation of human desire. What is at stake here is a line of questioning, asking why the Kantian project—i.e. becoming a cosmopolitan—has not worked out; why people so easily fall into refugee status rather than becoming ‘inter’-national beings.

Starting from this perspective, this series invites scholarly and creative groups to engage in a discussion of the ‘futurology’ of schools. The vision for these discussions arises from an experimental, imaginative embrace of the non-architectonic, and actively encourages rhizomatic movements of thinking. These future schools would dream of a new internationalism, of escape from the paradox of homelessness. The Futurology of Schools marks the arrival of the very future being named; as such, it is the only way we can overcome the deadlock of the present. What is crucial here is not the idea of the ‘school’, but that of ‘schooling’.
