From Spectacular Tragedies to Deliberative Action

Nicole Curato

  • Presents an empirically-grounded take on emerging issues in democratic theory, including the role of emotions and performance in political claim-making

  • Presents theoretical insights that travel to various contexts of widespread depravity and dispossession
  • Challenges readers to reconsider the everyday politics of constructing publics and reflect on the demands of democratic citizenship from a new perspective
