Dr. Emile Fromet de Rosnay

Director/adviser for cultural social and political thought (CSPT)
It is in the nature of disciplines to always deviate from themselves according to the pressures exerted by unexpected questions, angles and perspectives that challenge their constitutive methods. One might not feel fully at home in a department, but this can be a good thing. The students and faculty of CSPT together generate spaces of research tht take this seriously in an effort to develop individual approaches to writing outside of a discipline whilst maintaining fidelity to its research questions. Indeed, the program works from the position that theory itself—whatever else it may mean—necessitates such activity.
