Dr Somdeep Sen, part of the SIRIUS team at Roskilde University will give a lecture the afternoon of the 4th June at Koç University in Istanbul. The researcher will speak about activism and the political science endeavor and will explore the possibilities of developing an activist approach to the study of politics.
Drawing on his work for the SIRIUS project he will argue that activism should be inherent in the way academic work is conducted. He will then present proposals for the conceptual and methodological choices that an activist discipline would need to make in order to ensure that the resulting text refuses to treat the marginalized and their suffering at an arm’s length.
