The Trouble with Recognition

The lecture will engage with recent debates over the idea of recognition, addressing the impasse between subjectivism and objectivism.

Well known feminist political philosopher Lois McNay will give this year’s Annual Lecture for the AHRC Research Centre for Law, Gender and Sexuality. The lecture is titled 'The Trouble with Recognition', and will engage with current debates over issues of identity and agency in social and political conflict, drawing on material from her forthcoming book Against Recognition (Polity Press). Dr McNay is a Reader in Politics at Somerville College, Oxford. Her previous books include Foucault and Feminism (1992) and Gender and Agency (2000), and she is a leading contributor to contemporary debates in political philosophy, which have broad relevance across a range of disciplines, including law.
