I’m excited to collaborate with Emre Çetin Gürer and the University of the Commons to launch an online seminar in July on “International Critical Theory,” which will run in parallel to the Critical Theory Workshop‘s summer program in Paris. If you’re interested in the topic, click here for all of the details.
The Critical Theory Workshop, in collaboration with the University of the Commons, is proposing an online seminar that will run in parallel to the July workshop in Paris, extending its work into a global virtual network of scholars while facilitating the participation of those who cannot afford to travel. By combining live streams and recordings of select events in Paris with a series of participatory symposia run by the facilitator, the course seeks to put global communications technology in the service of an ecological and widely accessible format for international education.
Participants in the program will meet with the facilitator and organizers in online virtual symposia, contribute to discussion boards to generate questions for the invited speakers, watch live streams and/or recordings of the discussions in Paris focused on international critical theory (which will include the contribution of the questions generated in the discussion boards), present their own research projects, and receive peer feedback on their work. In addition to participating in the discussion boards, the program will include approximately 5 live streamed and/or recorded sessions, 3 research workshops, and 3 virtual discussion sessions (see below for the full schedule). Rather than doing required assignments, participants are encouraged to work on their own research projects, developing them in a context within which they are engaging with the work of leading critical theorists and a vibrant international community of scholars. Upon successful completion of the program, all of the participants will receive a certificate from the Critical Theory Workshop & the University of the Commons. Click here for more details.
