  1. 1. Un-common Sociality Thinking Sociality with Levinas

    University dissertation from Huddinge : Södertörns högskola

    Author : Ramona Rat; Södertörns högskola.; Södertörns högskola.; [2016]
    Keywords : HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; Levinas; sociality; community; un-common; Nancy; Blanchot; facing; inside-out; Kritisk kulturteori; Critical and Cultural Theory; Östersjö- och Östeuropaforskning; Baltic and East European studies;

    Abstract : The present investigation develops the notion of sociality based on Emmanuel Levinas’s thought, and proposes an understanding of sociality that resists becoming a common foundation: an un-common sociality which interrupts the reciprocal shared common, and thereby, paradoxically, makes it possible. By engaging in the larger debate on community, this work gives voice to Levinas on the question of community without a common ground, a topic and a debate where he has previously been underestimated.

  2. 2. For every word has its own shadow: Sunsets, Notes From Underground, Waves

    University dissertation from Göteborg : ArtMonitor

    Author : Lisa Tan; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2015]

    Abstract : Liminality permeates this doctoral project's questions: how can an experience of the liminal exist as an artwork? What things and experiences can orient us towards affectivity and states of becoming? Lisa Tan relates such concerns to Clarice Lispector whose writing renders becoming(s) visible. Coupled with Maurice Blanchot and his literary discourse on dispossession and the outside (analogous to becoming), Tan's inquiry is critically engaged inside a moving image practice. READ MORE
