CALL FOR APPLICATIONS

The Institute of Social Sciences and Humanities – Skopje in cooperation with the International

Institute of Studies of Humanities and Social Sciences (based in Athens) announces the summer school program “New Forms of Realism in Contemporary Philosophy.” Part 1 will be held in Ohrid (Macedonia) 26 June-3 July, 2015.

The “New Forms of Realism in Contemporary Philosophy” summer school in Ohrid will focus on the recent trends of realism in contemporary philosophy which has been labeled often erroneously under a single and vague category such as “speculative realism” or “new materialism” etc. Unpacking such generalizations and aiming at specific authors who have generated distinct strands of thought that nonetheless constitute what we have vaguely termed “new realisms in philosophy,” we conceptualized the sub-courses:

– “The non-standard philosophy of François Laruelle”; sub-course leader: François Laruelle

– “Non-standard epistemologies”; sub-course leader Anne Françoise Schmid

– “Magic Realism and Socialist Realism: Arts and Persuasion”; sub-course leader Svetlana Slapšak

– “Exploration of possibilities for realist readings in contemporary feminist philosophy in line with non-standard philosophy and the writings of Marx”; sub-course leader: Katarina Kolozova

Working language of the summer school will be English and French (with translation into English).
