Jarrett Zigon, Virginia

In his talk Jarrett Zigon considers attuned care as onto-ethical-political activity. Attuned care is not explicit care for this pain or that suffering.  Rather, it is that which allows for the very possibility of being-human-together. Being-human, that is, as a being always already intertwined in relations with other beings – human and nonhuman alike – for whom we have, because of this ontological intertwining, obligations of care. This will be taken up through a critical hermeneutic exploration of the anti-drug war movement, the long-term political project of which can be articulated as the onto-ethical-political enactment of worlds of attuned care.  

The International Summer School is jointly organized by members of the Institute of Historical and Cultural Anthropology, the Collaborative Research Center 923 "Threatened Order - Societies under Stress", and the Department of Sociology. It is funded by the Institutional Strategy of the University of Tübingen (ZUK 63)Universitätsbund Tübingen e.V., and the University’s Faculty of Economics and Social Sciences.
