July is getting closer and we are into the final phase of preparations for the Ideas Lab. We have a wonderful group of participants--and a few places are still available if you wish to join us. Use the booking tab on the right or if you have any queries email our Graduate Assistant, Yvonne Rinkart, on firstname.lastname@example.org.
We have a new guest professor to announce: Aslı Çalkıvik, from Istanbul Technical University has agreed to take part this year. Her work focuses on questions in international relations and political theory. She will be offering a seminar On Violence, Security, and Outliving ‘Life’, which examines questions to do with the relation between security and violence, and how political fear circulates in and produces the political field. The seminar asks whether we should or can dismantle security and what kinds of political imaginaries are available to think politics beyond a politics of security. Aslı replaces Sam Opondo, who has family responsibilities that unfortunately prevent him participating this year.
We are also fortunate to be able to announce two exciting plenary sessions on Alternative Learning Spaces; we explore, with the help of visiting artists, creative spaces for learning that move beyond the seminar room or lecture theatre. More details of these will be available later.
Altogether a wonderful programme: the revised details have been posted on the right. We are very much looking forward to seeing you in July!
