KSSCT is a rare opportunity for doctoral students and early career researchers to work intensively with a leading critical scholar in their field. Applicants are welcomed from all critical disciplinary perspective.

In 2016 the school will take the form of three parallel intensive 2-week seminars: Professor Samantha Frost (“Matters of perception: objects and materialities of affect); Professor James Martel (“How to be a bad subject: misinterpellation and the anarchisation of the soul”);  Professor Bernard Stiegler (“From German ideology to the Dialectic of nature: Reading Marx and Engels in the age of the Anthropocene”). For more information on each 2-week seminar, please see the website, kssct.org.

In addition to the intensive seminars, each of the Professors will give an evening lecture, and we are excited to be able to announce their titles (more information available on the website):

  • Samantha Frost: “Ten theses on the subject of biology and politics”
  • James Martel: “Unburied Bodies: Sovereign power, human rights and the subversion of the corpse”
  • Bernard Stiegler: “Questions of neguanthropology”

There will also be a special evening roundtable on “Feminism, Technicity and the Human”–on which more in the future!

Applications close on the new date of 21 March 2016. For information on how to apply, as well as accommodation suggestions and details of available scholarships, please visit the website, kssct.org.
