Professor Costas Douzinas, Birkbeck College and Institute for Social Justice

What is the meaning of personhood in today’s Western context? In the first part of this Masterclass, Professor Douzinas will speak on the genealogy of the person and dignity. Douzinas will discuss the move from law to theology and philosophy and will argue that personhood is reverting itself to its earlier meaning as privilege. In the second part Douzinas will be asking ‘Finis Europae?’ The decline of the West and of Europe in the new world order of right wing nationalism and isolationism.
