Critically Linked Poster

Dear Users of DiscourseNet

It is our great pleasure to launch today our new DiscourseNet Podcast "Critically Linked", hosted by Dana S. Trif and Jaspal N. Singh. Please find a linked brief description to the Podcast below. Have a good start into the new week and happy listening. 

Jaspal and Dana


In this first episode of Critically Linked, we sit down with Michael Kranert, Lecturer in Sociolinguistics at the University of Southampton, UK, and Andrew Jones, postdoctoral fellow at the University of Exeter, UK, to discuss the relevance of Immanuel Kant’s thinking in today’s world. In an article published in 2018, Jamaican-born philosopher Charles W. Mills (1951 – 2021) tried to develop what he called a “black radical Kantianism”. Questioning Kantian universalism, Mills attempted to reappropriate in his writing Western liberal concepts from an Afromodern viewpoint. Is Kantian ethics a valid framework for today’s world? Can we still hope to achieve peace in international relations by following Kant’s famous articles from his 1797 essay “Towards Perpetual Peace”? Questions, answers, and more questions are all available in this first episode of a podcast series sponsored by DiscourseNet, the Association for Discourse Studies.
