PhD Public Lecture
Research at the Centre focuses on the work of such movements as Deconstruction, Social and Political Thought, Continental Philosophy, Psychoanalysis, Visual Culture, Marxist Theory, Post-Humanist Theory, Linguistics and Rhetorical Theory, 18th & 19th Century Philosophy and History of Thought. More broadly, it is concerned with the questions raised by these movements, and with constructing a dialogue both between theory and its history and between the disciplines or discourses that have contributed to contemporary theory.
Since the inception of its MA program in 1990, the Centre has been the preferred destination for students of excellent calibre from Canada and from abroad, and this tradition has continued at the doctoral level since the launching of the PhD program in 2002. Through its programs and the work of its accomplished Core Faculty from Arts and Humanities, Information & Media Studies, and Social Sciences, the Centre has successfully established itself as one of Western’s well recognized and celebrated research intensive graduate programs, one that has been successfully guided by the strength of cross-disciplinary collaboration.
