The 2019 summer Critical Theory Workshop/Atelier de Théorie Critique, directed by Gabriel Rockhill and Jennifer Ponce de León, will take place from July 1-19 at the EHESS in central Paris. It is open to graduate students and faculty, as well as advanced undergraduates, independent researchers, writers and artists. Invited guests for 2019 thus far include Etienne Achille, Paola Bacchetta, Patricia Gherovici, Lydie Moudileno, Antonio Negri, Jacques Rancière and Sophie Wahnich.

The CTW/ATC summer school is an intensive research program whose primary objective is to provide an international forum for trans-disciplinary and comparative work in critical social theory, in the most expansive sense of the term. Participants are exposed to the work of contemporary thinkers and engage with current debates in the Francophone world and beyond. Special attention is paid to traditions of thought that have been excluded from the academy, including Marxism, anarchism, the black radical tradition, anticolonial theory, anti-capitalist feminism and radical ecological thought. The 2019 Workshop will be comprised of three interlocking components:

• "Débats": invited speakers debate on a common theme or question.

• "Rencontres": intellectuals are invited to participate in public interviews on their work.

• "Groupes de travail": the participants present and workshop their own research.

This program is bilingual, but the primary language is English and all of the events in French will be translated. Knowledge of French is therefore recommended but by no means a requirement.
