Keywords Lectures – an Introduction
Keywords takes its title from Raymond Williams’ seminal book ‘Keywords: a Vocabulary of Culture and Society’ first published in 1976, which looks at how the meaning of words change as the context in which they are used changes about them.
Terms discussed to date include: Absolutely Postcolonial, Paternalism, The Left, Resistance, Reform and Class.
Speakers have included: Peter Hallward, Professor of Modern European Philosophy at Kingston University; Isobel Whitelegg, Research Officer and AHRC Fellow, Camberwell College of Arts; theorists Judith Butler and Sudeep Dasgupta; Cultural theorist and writer Stephen Wright and artist and lecturer Susan Kelly; Artist and writer Coco Fusco and Sara Ahmed, Professor in Race and Cultural studies, Goldsmiths, art historian and writer T J Clark and academic and author Ziauddin Sardar.
