EV Research seminar

Theme: Bad Identities

Engaging Vulnerability’s fall seminar series will discuss privilege and vulnerability, notions of appropriation, desire and identification, and the dynamics of identity politics in contemporary debates about “bad identities”; that is, about individuals who identify themselves in ways that fall beyond or challenge the limits of what generally is deemed legible and legitimate. By focusing on individual cases – on both sides, on both accused and accuser – the seminar will explore issues of hegemony, subversion and the ontology of identity, and seek to understand why bad identities are so problematic for, and generative of, so much contemporary thought and debate.
