Images of a Demystified World

"Images of a Demystified World:" Critical Theory Conference at JCU - May 13-15
May 13-15, 2009

John Cabot University of Rome is hosting its third international conference on Critical Theory, which will be held at the Guarini Campus in Rome, Italy – Via della Lungara 233.

The conference will examine the relevance of the Frankfurt School by addressing the philosophical tradition of the early stages of Critical Theory – and in particular the works of Walter Benjamin, Theodor W. Adorno, Max Horkheimer and Herbert Marcuse – as well as the application of their theories to our contemporary society.

In order to reflect the wide range of topics addressed by Critical Theory, the conference will cover different aspects of philosophical reflection on politics, aesthetics, sociology, technology, literature and any other relevant field of study.
Registration will open on May 12 (Conference Fee: 80 Euros)
