Lake Como School — School in Social Sciences: Human Enhancement and self-optimization in the Individualized Society: Trends and Tendencies
06 Jun 2022 - 10 Jun 2022 • Como, Italy
Organizer:
Lake Como School of Advanced Studies
Abstract:
That we are individuals living in increasingly individualized societies is a well-established fact, as well as one may depict the contemporary subject as the human type who wants to be free in order to become an individual. No more some kind of a Comune at the foundation of our societies, but the Individuo and his freedom to act as a privato. No more “laws” for action, but “freedom” of action. No more the “political animal” but the “homo oeconomicus” as the subject of history, and, last but not least, no more “citizens” of the City (Polis), rather “consumers” in the global cities (cosmo-poleis), searching for self-improvement and self-realization but often coping with the delusions of authenticity and autonomy. However, social sciences teach us that the process of individualization does not entail the end of the social, or the vanishing of relations; rather, it implies a deep reconfiguration of human relations in every life sphere: from love to family, from work to friendship, the individual is hovering between the longing for singularization and the need for community. From this perspective, the issue of human enhancement is fundamental to understand contemporary changes of human relations. Through the contribution of renowned experts, the field will be examined by applying the best contributions in classical and contemporary social sciences theorizing to significant case-based empirical material. The program will offer a thorough and in-depth analysis of the structural dimensions of human enhancement while at the same time encouraging the student to think about its effects on social relations and processes of subjectivation, and in particular on the chances and constraints it poses for the formation of a mature personality and for the realization of a meaningful conduct of life within the individualized society.

The (SCOPUS/ISI) SOAS GLOCAL Conference on Asian Linguistic Anthropology 2022
02 Nov 2022 - 05 Nov 2022 • Quezon City, Philippines
Organizer:
SOAS University of London, U.K. & University of The Philippines Diliman, Philippines.
Abstract:
The GLOCAL CALA 2022 theme “Symbolism and New Society” describes the need for symbolic representation in a rapidly changing Asia. As has been the case throughout a larger global society, Asian societies have sought increasingly rapid change, seeking none less than online spaces to contextualize and to legitimize the effects of this rapid change. Here, recent events have patently mediated the shift to online interaction, a shift which has thus intensified the development, and possibly, the invention, of a range of new symbolisms and symbolic clusters that now have a limited use in offline spaces. The GLOCAL CALA 2022 thus calls for renewed awareness and interpretations of Asian symbolisms in this new era, and asks that we seek new perspectives of these Asian complex symbolisms, in their global contexts. These interpretations increase in significance as the use of online virtual world texts and textual modes have now assumed an authoritative stance over the real world, possibly creating new realities and new real worlds that subvert our ideologies of those old real worlds. This shift to symbolisms required to reconceptualize new virtual and old real worlds in this current era, will surely motivate dialogue.
