Guest professor seminars and workshop details

We are delighted to announce that full details of the guest professor seminars are now available through the link to the right. 

There is an exciting choice of topics. Each seminar comprises three one-and-a-half hour sessions. The seminars run in three steams and participants choose one seminar from each stream:

Stream A:
Specular Politics: Mystery, Manifestation, Resistance (Michael Dillon)

Deleuze and Politics  (Tom Lundborg)

Psychoanalysis and the Practice of Resistance (Andreja Zevnik)

Stream B:
On Violence, Security, and Outliving ‘Life’ (Asli Calkivik)

The New Politics of Enclosure (R. B. J. Walker)

(Un)making the Neoliberal Subject (Erzsebet Strausz)

Stream C:
Aesthetics and Politics (Jenny Edkins)

"The world, after the end of the world" (Andrew Davison)

Interpreting War: Critical Methods, Ethics & Politics (Annick T. R. Wibben)

In addition to the seminars, we have two plenary workshops. The first, led by Himadeep Muppidi, entitled ‘Worlding the postcolonial’, follows on from the wonderful storytelling workshop he led last year. The second is a completely new venture for this year—a workshop led by Phil Gaydon, Conor Heaney and Erzsebet Strausz. This workshop takes place over two plenary sessions in the Music Room on Wednesday afternoon/evening. Expect to find the room transformed and your ideas of learning spaces challenged.

Other activities include research surgeries with guest professors, sessions organised by participants, a twympath dawns on the first evening, a barbecue, and hopefully a yoga session to counterbalance all that thinking. There will be free time too, to enjoy walks and conversation in the beautiful surroundings at Gregynog.

Looking forward to seeing you in July!
