We are pleased to announce that we will be hosting the second annual Pelion Summer Lab for Cultural Theory and Experimental Humanities (PSL), an initiative of the Department of History, Archaeology and Social Anthropology and the Laboratory of Social Anthropology of the University of Thessaly, co-organized with the Research Centre for the Humanities based in Athens.
The aim of this 10-day program (June 28-July 8, 2018), which will be held in Hania at the top of Mt. Pelion, is to convene an interdisciplinary group of graduate students, advanced undergraduates, academics and cultural producers from fields such as anthropology, history, arts, political philosophy, gender studies, literary and cultural studies and new media studies for a period of intensive and provocative exchange regarding the pressing problems and questions of our research and our worlds.
The theme of this year’s Pelion Summer Lab – Liminal Lives and Para-Sites –will center on the liminal lives and parasitic/viral networks of the early 21st century through a genealogical perspective, which brings out the constitutive power of experimentation as a way of reshaping the world from early modernity to today.
The deadline for applications is April 28, 2018.
