From Professor Maria Drakopoulou, Co Director University of Kent Centre for Critical Thought:
We are excited to announce that applications are now open for the Kent Summer School in Critical Theory, to be held this year in Paris, 1-12 July 2019. Our website is now live, and we invite you to pay us a visit and lodge your application at: https://research.kent.ac.uk/kssct/. All instructions, deadlines, further information, and FAQs can be found there.
The KSSCT is a summer school for early career researchers and doctoral students from all disciplines. It aims to create a unique pedagogical experience, enabling leading critical thinkers to conduct an intensive 2-week seminar with a new generation of critical scholars.
The teachers of the intensive seminars in 2019 will be Professor Alain Pottage (London School of Economics, UK) and Professor Sigrid Weigel (Research Center for Literature and Culture, Berlin, Germany). An outline of each 2-week seminar, together with an indicative reading list, is now available on the website.
Details of evening lectures and other events will be added as we confirm the full schedule for this year’s meeting. We are also delighted to announce that in 2019, the KSSCT seminar programme will be preceded by a Graduate Research Day, in Paris on 29 June. We encourage all applicants to consider joining us for this one-day event, and we also welcome applications to the graduate research day from those who are not able to apply to attend a KSSCT seminar this year.
