Theory, the Uncanny and the Sacred
|Title:||Theory, the Uncanny and the Sacred||Authors:||Kavanagh, Donncha||Permanent link:||http://hdl.handle.net/10197/5798||Date:||Jul-2014||Online since:||2014-08-08T13:29:22Z||Abstract:||This paper examines the related but different concepts of the uncanny and the sacred. Drawing on two cases - one fictional and one real - and using Zizek's Symbolic-Real-Imaginary as an organising frame, the paper analyses how the uncanny and the sacred are connected. It then proceeds to examine the role of theorising in sacralising the uncanny and profaning the sacred. Finally, it briefly discusses how theory might be re-enchanted.||Type of material:||Conference Publication||Copyright (published version):||2014 the Author||Keywords:||Zizek; Sacred; Theorizing; Uncanny||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed||Conference Details:||30th EGOS Colloquium Reimagining, Rethinking, Reshaping: Organizational Scholarship in Unsettled Times, Rotterdam, The Netherlands, 3-5 July, 2014|
