Kent Law School announces its annual Kent Summer School in Critical Theory (KSSCT), running again this year in Paris, from 1 to 12 July.

The KSSCT offers early career and doctoral researchers from all disciplines the opportunity to participate in a single two-week intensive seminar with a leading critical thinker. This year, the seminars will be:

  • Professor Alain Pottage (Law, LSE): ‘An Anthropogeology of Law’
  • Professor Sigrid Weigel (Research Centre for Literature Research (ZfL Berlin), Germany): ‘Towards a Political Theology of Images – Imaging the A-Visible in Science, Religion, and Politics’

Applications are now open. All details, outlines of the seminars with indicative reading lists, application instructions, general information and a ‘Frequently Asked Questions’ section, are available on the website:

This summer school is aimed at early career researchers and doctoral students. In an academic environment increasingly shaped by institutional and economic imperatives, spaces for sustained and intensive critical thought are increasingly hard to find—especially in the calendar of the early career researcher or doctoral student. The KSSCT offers a unique experience of interdisciplinary intellectual engagement and formation, and the opportunity to work closely with a leading critical thinker.

We are pleased to offer this year an additional Graduate Research Day, to be held in Paris on 29 June. Applicants are welcome whether or not they are also applying to attend a KSSCT seminar in 2019. Further details and information at:
