By Emily and Daniel Blanchard.
In which Emily and Daniel seek after the “critical” in critical theory, dramatizing the very stakes of life and labour within neoliberal structures. This reflective audio essay was created in the context of Feminist Philosophy (fall 2016). Recommended reading is Nancy Fraser’s “How Feminism Became Capitalism’s Handmaiden.”
Reflections by this episode’s creators:
“I really hope these podcasts will spur a new type of movement for critical theory. The process of creating an audio essay like this really pushed me to have more off-the-cuff conversations on these subjects.”
“I hope that the subject of our podcast will stimulate reflection on the direction that the struggle for gender emancipation has taken, and rectification that may be necessary. Addressing gender disparities without addressing neoliberalism is futility.”
