Paths in Emancipation This spring Contradictions: A Journal for Critical Thought and the Prague City Library present a series of discussions on emancipation. Each month we focus on a new theme drawn from contemporary social movements. Together with experts and activists, we’ll discuss the most pressing questions of our moment and delve into the longest-standing social problems. Because we know that the present moment will soon be history – but also that history is never entirely past. We’ll ask hard questions, because human freedom doesn’t have time for easy answers.
