Critical Theory Workshop / Atelier de Théorie Critique: Online Summer Program
Talks at this conferenceAdd a talk
The Critical Theory Workshop / Atelier de Théorie Critique 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, socialist feminism and radical ecological thought. Invited speakers in 2020 include: Timothy Bewes, Larry Busk, Annie Lacroix-Riz, Jennifer Ponce de León, Gabriel Rockhill, Julian Sempill, Massimiliano Tomba, Antonio Vázquez-Arroyo, and others.
The Workshop, which usually takes place at the École des Hautes Études en Sciences Sociales in central Paris, will be online this year, but the program will be nearly identical. It does not follow the traditional structure of a course but is comprised of three interlocking components:
- Débats: invited speakers participate in a debates on a common theme or current research.
- Rencontres: intellectuals are invited to participate in public interviews on their work.
- Groupes de travail: the participants present and workshop their own research, which leads up to a final conference.
The overall objective is to bring together a diverse panoply of thinkers in order to cultivate productive debates on topical and pressing issues.
