Love as Politics Workshop, Tokyo 2019

In February 2019, members of the Autonomism Research Group in Tokyo organised a symposium at Tokyo University of Foreign Studies to discuss the notion of love as politics. The discussion ranged broadly across different understandings of love as politics including reflections on the Love: Art, Ideas, Music, Politics festival. Two of the papers from the conference are available for download in English and Japanese.
