This conference will be the first meeting of the Mellon-funded conference cycle of the International Consortium of Critical Theory Programs. The focus of this conference will be “The Critical Tasks of the University” and will evaluate the prevailing metrics of value that increasingly structure and restrict the university in various global locations and to understand how critical thought or more robust notions of “critique” can inform and enliven our contemporary reflections on valuable ways of knowing.
In April 2017, the Institute for Advanced Studies in the Humanities (IASH) at the University of Edinburgh is hosting a European Conference for the Humanities on behalf of the European Consortium of Humanities Institutes and Centres (ECHIC).
The multi-media installation of Philip Miller and Thuthuka Sibisi’s The African Choir of 1891 has been added to the CHCI Annual Meeting program in collaboration with the Centre for Humanities Research and the South African National Gallery in Cape Town. The installation is a re-imagining of the tour that a South African choir made to Victorian England in 1891 featuring songs recreated by the composers from the original 1891 program along with twenty photographic portraits of the original members of the Choir re-discovered after 125 years.
Deadline: June 4, 2017
