The Centre for Research in Modern European Philosophy (CRMEP) and the London Graduate School in collaboration with Art and Philosophy at Central Saint Martins present a lecture in CRMEP’s 20th Anniversary Public Lecture Series.

Prof. Tina Chanter (Kingston University) gives a talk on Rancière, politics and art (29 Jan 2015, CSM). To listen click here

Tina Chanter’s research currently focuses on questions of aesthetics and politics. Recent publications have interrogated the philosophical, psychoanalytic and literary reception of Sophocles’ tragic heroine Antigone; an analysis of abjection in contemporary, independent film; and the need to reflect on how to theorise gender in a manner that explores its intrinsic and complex relationship to other categories such as race, class and sexuality.  Tina’s work is informed by figures such as Levinas, Derrida, Irigaray, Kristeva, and Rancière. Her recent books include Whose Antigone? The Tragic Marginalization of Slavery (SUNY Press, 2011) and The Picture of Abjection: film, fetish and the nature of difference (Indiana UP, 2008).
