Event Description

Sensitivity is a problem and a porthole. It ascribes virtue to scientific instruments and is an epithet for reactivity. It labels physical reality and intuitions, facts and vibes, data scientists and empaths. Reflecting on its religious past, this talk argues for sensitivity’s queer political future.
