Event description

Description

How can we bring politics back to life in the age of Trump, Putin, Brexit and post-truth?

This conference is the culmination of the ARC Laureate Project Informal Life Politics in Northeast Asia: New Perspectives on Social Transitions from Cold War to Post Cold War, conducted by Professor Tessa Morris-Suzuki, Dr Tom Cliff, Dr Shuge Wei, Dr Robert Winstanley-Chesters, Dr Uchralt Otede and Yonjae Paik, all of whom will also speak at the conference.

This conference will rethink the boundaries of the “political”, exploring innovative autonomous ways in which people in East Asia and beyond are collaborating to solve challenges which conventional political systems fail to address.

The conference brings together practitioners in grassroots alternatives as well as academic researchers. Topics covered will include: informal life politics; reimagining the state; cooperation and cooperatives; the self-help politics of memory, and art activism. The aim is to encourage debate and inspire new ways of looking at politics in our region.
