Example text

As Anthony Giddens (1991) suggests, we might well be witnessing a movement away from the heroic and Promethean ‘emancipatory politics’ of earlier phases of modernity towards the more existential and everyday concerns of what he calls ‘life politics’ (see also Featherstone, 1992; Gouldner, 1975). In favouring the notion of multiple counterpublics endowed with diverse rationalities and modes of interaction and expression over a singular public sphere regulated by a narrowly circumscribed form of rational argumentation, the essential point is that we need to ‘foster a conception of public which in principle excludes no persons, aspects of persons’ lives, or topic of discussion and which encourages aesthetic as well as discursive expression.

Bakhtin’s evocation of the carnivalesque is best understood as indicative of his desire to draw our attention to the underlying sociocultural forces that continually subvert our received commonsensical notions and habitualized viewpoints, and to encourage a renewed awareness of the hidden and all-too-often suppressed potentialities that lie within ‘the dregs of an everyday gross reality’ (Bakhtin, 1981: 385). Conclusion: wild publics In this concluding section, I would like tentatively to link up some of the key points discussed above to the debate around publics and counterpublics touched on briefly in my introductory remarks.
