Social and Political Thought (SPT) is an interdisciplinary program that explores contemporary issues and events of global importance from several different and engaged perspectives. Students are invited to examine the deeper, often hidden and obscured, structures that give shape to our present-day society. We examine how our sense of self and our experience of others and the world are conditioned by social, legal, political, economic, military, and psychological forces of power. These forces of power not only produce societal orders, they also are the source of violence, aggression and conflict. SPT’s interdisciplinary focus gives students the unique possibility of understanding how concepts and imagined ends or goals of human power and desire come to shape and form the sense of ourselves, how we view others, and how we organise and build our worlds.

Examples of problems/issues we cover:
- Global migrations and refugees
- Worldwide debt and its consequences
- Emerging technologies of war and their impact on human life
- Bio-power and the manipulation of the human
- Overcoming colonization, racism and imperialism
- New views of subjectivity and the rise of the post-human
- Precarious life and future
