Dr Carlos Frade

Carlo’s research focuses on the relationship between power and subjectivity in our world, including the digital, and on the possibilities for emancipatory forms of subjectivation today. At its core is the attempt to understand why we submit and consent to what we know is unacceptable and disastrous. 

 This problem is addressed in four substantive fields: everyday life; politics (political rationalities, social-political movements, human rights); the professional field (calling or vocation and its unfolding in praxis, the present and future of the university and the human sciences); and the digital (social media, big data).
