Workshop on “Experience, Intimacy and Authority”

Madrid, 20-21 June 2012.

IV Workshop of the Project “Identity, Memory and Experience”, jointly organized
by Universidad Carlos III de Madrid and Vanderbilt University

The project “Identity, Memory and Experience”, jointly organized by Universidad
Carlos III de Madrid and Vanderbilt University, aims at the analysis of these three
interconnected notions —identity, memory and experience—, paying heed to recent
discussions on personal identity, to issues discussed in the field of moral and political
philosophy and to identity issues in cultural studies (such as gender as race analyses).
After previous events devoted to identity and memory, our fourth workshop will focus
specifically on the notion of experience and its connections to intimacy and authority.
The aim is to have a broad discussion, which may address some of the following and
other related questions:
- How are experiential perspectives formed and expressed?
- What kind of authority can experience have?
- Are our spaces and relations of intimacy based on shared experiences?
- What are the relations among intimacy, the private domain, and the public
domain? How does authority figure in these domains?
- How do the first-, second-, and third-person perspectives contribute to form
experiences? How do they enter into authority relationships?
