The NOISE 2018 Summer School is called Social and Political Suffocations (flyer) and will be held from August 27 – 31, 2018, Utrecht University, the Netherlands.
The 26th edition of the NOISE Summer School seeks to address experiences of social and political suffocations, as well as accompanying strategies of resistance, through a series of lectures by scholars and activists who are all also embodied practitioners in their critical practice(s). With these, the five-day program of NOISE 2018 will offer innovative interventions into the debate on political involvement as theory and embodied practice, as well as a discussion of strategies of organizing in the face of individual, institutional and structural enclosures.
This advanced training course offers a diverse yet coherent program of study from an interdisciplinary perspective. The Summer School is meant for PhD and MA students. Separate seminars for these two groups will be provided in the afternoons.
– Lectures in the morning
– Separate PhD and MA-seminars in the afternoon
– Round table discussions
– Social program
– Students prepare before NOISE by reading and collecting material for assignments (approximately 40 hours of work). After the school has ended, participants who fulfilled all requirements (preparation of assignments and reading, active participation, and final essay) receive a NOISE Certificate of 5 EC.
– All students are expected to participate in the entire program for the duration of five days.
The NOISE Summer School 2018 will be hosted by Utrecht University, the Netherlands.
The tuition fee is €450. This includes digital reading materials but excludes accommodation and subsistence costs (i.e., food, meals, drinks, etc.).
