Description: This module explores historically the contemporary crisis of the “post-political” age created by the collapse of contending ideological forces in 1989. Through extended seminars and detailed discussion of key texts, students will consider what the “End of History” did to political and personal life, and how and why populist ructions and Brexit are now upsetting the post-political order. We will also explore where politics is heading, and how activists and citizens might act.
