The European Summer School in Cultural Studies is a network-based seminar for interdisciplinary research training in the fields of art and culture, organized by the PhD Programme in Cultural Studies, Literature and the Arts at the University of Copenhagen, The Amsterdam School of Cultural Analysis, The International Graduate Centre for the Study of Culture at the University of Giessen, The London Consortium, École Doctorale Esthétique, sciences et technologies des arts at Université de Paris VIII, the Lisbon Consortium, Institutum Studiorum Humanitatis Ljublana and The University of Trondheim.
English is the official language and the activities takes place in the magnificent Hotel de Lauzun in central Paris. The program is very rich, and surely interesting for most subjects in our disciplines. The School offers a European platform for the development of cultural studies with a focus on new research methodologies, models for interdisciplinary research organization, and presentation of exemplary topics that address seminal problems and perspectives in contemporary cultural studies.
The ESSCS is hosted each year by one of the eight partner institutions and accommodates 8 keynote speakers, including representatives from the five collaborating institutions, and up to 50 junior researchers from Europe and abroad. The primary target group for the summer school is candidates enrolled in a PhD-programme, but a number of seats will be reserved for post.doc.-candidates in order to enhance the continuity in research training beyond the PhD-level.

The choreographer Björn Säfsten and the philosopher Per Nilsson have engaged over the past three years in a multidisciplinary research project involving choreography and philosophy, at the Umeå Academy of Fine Arts. In association with Moderna Museet and MDT, lectures, performances, workshops, discussions and parties will take place on Skeppsholmen for three days, to summarise and celebrate the conclusions of this project. The symposium will take place during the opening of the exhibition After Babel, thus providing a meeting place and venue for events. In lectures and choreographic works, researchers and artists will comment on and discuss the relationship between choreography, art and philosophy. Different theoretical and artistic fields are brought together to explore how they may influence our critical thinking. The symposium will feature works and lectures by Cristina Caprioli, Bojana Cvejić, Mette Edvardsen, Abraham Hurtado, Michael Kliën, Jennifer Lacey, Per Nilsson & Gerd Aurell, Peggy Phelan, Richard Shusterman, Alma Söderberg & Hendrik Willekens, Sarah Vanhee and Haegue Yang.
The course consists of participation in the symposium, and continuous discussions with examiner Cecilia Malmström Olsson.
Date: 18.-19. June
Location: Academy of Fine Arts, Schillerplatz 3, 1030 Vienna, DG-12 (top floor)
‘Disordering Listening – a practical seminar’ will be a collective investigation into the role and potentials of listening, considering sound-based practice around listening in relation to social and political subjects and subjectivities. In particular exploring acts and organizations of listening that are embedded in daily life and that activate multiple responses: philosophical, psychological, phenomenological, perceptual, conceptual, political, etc. To “disorder” listening would be to embrace all of these responses transversally, rather than isolating “listening” as an autonomous category of experience. The workshop will be facilitated by Cathy Lane, Professor of Sound Arts at University of the Arts London and founder of the Her Noise Archive, and prepared by three PhD candidates of the PhD in Practice Program in Vienna, Hong-Kai Wang, Janine Jembere, and Keiko Uenishi.
