The Utrecht School of Critical Theory 2012. Don’t miss it!

The Utrecht School of Critical Theory offers a three-week intensive interdisciplinary programme (IP) that will take place from January 16 until February 4, 2012.  This year’s IP is titled ‘Risk Societies & Cosmopolitanism’ and it features a specific thematic focus in each week. As a participant in the Intensive Programme, you will partake in intensive lectures and small scaled seminars with world renowned scholars. For the 2012 edition the CfH can already confirm the participation of teachers from the universities of Utrecht, Edinburgh, Helsinki and London (Birkbeck college and City University). The IP offers a unique opportunity not only to participate in invigorating lectures and seminars by international renouned scholars like Ulrich Beck, Michael Hardt and Rosi Braidotti but also to have a stimulating possibility to contribute to the Perpetual Peace Project: an activist art programme in collaboration with Syracuse University (USA) and the United Nations University. Apart from getting a perfect chance to expand their professional and personal networks, students can also earn 7,5 ECTS after successfully completing the three week programme (including a creative practical assignment and writing a short essay). And best of all, there will be (a limited number of) travel grants available for participants from partner universities outside the Netherlands.
