International Summer School
Palermo – June 20th-25th, 2011

Preliminary Remarks
The International School for Advanced Studies (henceforth Summer School) is one of the activities of the International PhD in European Cultural Studies/Europäische Kulturstudien promoted by the Department of Cultural Studies, University of Palermo in collaboration with the Heinrich-Heine-University and the University of Bari, Milan Bicocca, Valencia and Murcia. It arises from the cooperation between the universities partner of the action.

Teaching Objectives
Critique and crisis is a hendiadys characteristic of modernity. It is a notion going back at least to the eighteenth century with a precise and articulated European location, marking the birth of a concept that is central to our interest: culture. It is a question of understanding that "culture" is the figure of thought (itself a metaphor), that is built through a self-reflection (critique) and through the continuous self-questioning (crisis). The fact that there are many and rich "cultural turns" in today’s cultural studies is the clearest proof that Modernity is conceived from the concept of culture and culture is conceived as critique and crisis.

The scholars taking part in the Summer School will seek to define the paradigms by which we can now think the notion of critique and that of crisis into the background of the two disciplines inspiring our Phd program in Palermo, i.e. political philosophy and the study of culture in Modernity.

The course will be structured in lectures given by famous professors, discussions and workshops introduced by discussants. In particular, as in the previous edition, the professors from the partner institutions will intervene as discussants of the lectures. Unpublished works presented by all scholars are to be published in Italian and German. A selection of the participants' contributions will be discussed within the workshop and then published in the journal

The teachers involved in the course are Professors V. Borsò, E. Bronfen, R. Calabrese, M. Calloni, A. Castoldi, I. Chambers, R. Coglitore, M. Cometa, L. Curti, F. Duque, P. Jedlowski, H. Lethen, S. Marcenò, G. Marramao, A. Moreiras, E. Osterkamp, M. Pala, L. Passerini, G. Piretto, V. Stoichita, S. Vaccaro, J. L. Villacañas, A. Violi.

The working languages will be Italian, Spanish, English, French and German.
