New Forms of Revolt

Date: Wednesday 26.11.2014, 11.15 - 13.15
Location: Auditorium A (Egget), Studentsenteret, Universitetet i Bergen

Julia Kristeva proposes a new interpretation of the experience of revolt: far from simply a negation or contestation of the norm, revolt is a transvaluation of memory, a reconstruction of subjectivity.

Setting out from this definition, Kristeva stresses the personal experience of revolt as an infinite refounding of the self, and as a motor of social change.
