Our goal is to explore the contentious relationship between ontology, critique and democratic politics, by simultaneously engaging with recent scholarship on the “ontological turn” in political theory and with reflections around the interface between varieties of critique and democratic agency. The roundtable  will bring together four leading voices in this debate: Aletta Norval (Essex), Lois McNay (Oxford), Oliver Marchart (Vienna) and Sergei Prozorov (Helsinki).
