Event description

Description

Granta guest-editor, Devorah Baum will be joined by author of critically acclaimed Not Working, Josh Cohen and psychoanalyst Anouchka Grose to discuss this most unruly of subjects: the politics of feeling.

Are we in the West experiencing an age of intellectual exhaustion, or burnout – with creeping political apathy in the face of overwhelming new technologies of information? By influencing our feelings and choices is 'surveillance capitalism' and by default 'instrumentarianism' ordering the political landscape?

How does benign, good will towards others who are less better off sometimes create contradictory, conflicting feelings within us? And do hidden motives really matter as long as outward intentions are well meaning?

These are just some of the topics covered in the new winter 2019 Granta magazine. Join our guests at Libreria, and, more importantly, join the discussion.
