In this lecture we will report on pedagogical experiments that take seriously important calls to face difficult paradoxes in social justice work carried out through modern institutions and subjectivities. We will invite participants to an open conversation about the task of mobilizing social justice with/out the modern subject and his ingrained sense of separability. We will also present the rationale for the Summer course: Experiments in entangled co-existence: facing the inter-sectional violences of modernity, which attempts to reframe relationships as entanglements that move us beyond knowledge, identity and understanding.
