The Public Intellectual and the Culture of Hope

Samenvatting

The Public Intellectual and the Culture of Hope brings together a number of winners of the Polanyi Prize in Literature - a group whose research constitutes a diversity of methodological approaches to the study of culture - to examine the rich but often troubled association between the concepts of the public, the intellectual (both the person and the condition), culture, and hope. The contributors probe the influence of intellectual life on the public sphere by reflecting on, analyzing, and re-imagining social and cultural identity. The Public Intellectual and the Culture of Hope reflects on the challenging and often vexed work of intellectualism within the public sphere by exploring how cultural materials - from foundational Enlightenment writings to contemporary, populist media spectacles - frame intellectual debates within the clear and ever-present gaze of the public writ large. These serve to illuminate how past cultures can shed light on present and future issues, as well as how current debates can reframe our approaches to older subjects.
