2018 Special Focus - Autonomy in Times of Turmoil: What to Make of the Social?

We are living in times that are deeply contradictory. On the one hand, global social phenomena are impacting our local lives. On the other, there is push away from global solutions in the form of various localisms. At times, these may be considered a reactive withdrawal; at other times, a quest for autonomy. But do these movements, reactive or constructive, also represent a retreat from the common issues we face? How do we understand the nature of individual and collective autonomy in our current times? What are we to make of the social today, both as lived reality and speculative imaginary?
