Public Policy Horizons and Phenomenology of Motivated Possibility

| | |
Veranstaltungskategorie Ausstellung

Broadly construed, anticipation can be understood as a mode of futural orientation; it is a given set of norms that presents possibilities, which bears on the present with some degree of certainty and calls for some response. In this talk, I will explore how public policy anticipations are co-constitutive of individuals’ experiential outlooks on their futures-linking together different kinds of anticipation across lived experience and political structures. Rarely are these two perspectives integrated in practical terms, despite the fact that affective attunement is key to the meaningful translation of policy-particularly in addressing inequalities. I will especially address the under-appreciated phenomenological concept of ‘motivated possibility’ to articulate these links.
