Thursday, 9 May 2013 (All day) - Friday, 10 May 2013 (All day)
University of Warwick (Coventry)

Aya Ikegame presents her paper on 'Sovereignty after Orientalism: devotee-citizens in a guru's court in south India' at the Symposium 'Religion and the Architecture of Political Agency' on 9-10 May 2013.

The symposium will explore questions such as - What is the specific impact of theology in the construction of political agency? How are theologies implicated in the creation of, and resistance to, western domination, biopolitics and capitalism? How do we conceptualize and research the consequences for political agency of theological differences? What are the differences between 'political theology', 'political spirituality' and 'subjectification'; Does political theology make political subjectivity redundant?

The symposium is organised by Claire Blencowe, ARN, Warwick Politics and Performance Network; Social Theory Centre
