The Institute for Critical Social Inquiry (ICSI) at the New School for Social Research is pleased to announce that we are now accepting applications for our 2017 Summer Seminars (June 11 - 17). Advanced graduate students and faculty are eligible to apply. Applications are due December 15, 2016 by 11:59 pm Eastern Standard Time.

ICSI offers advanced graduate students and faculty from around the world the opportunity to spend a week at the New School’s campus in Greenwich Village, working closely with some of the most distinguished thinkers shaping the course of contemporary social inquiry. The Institute is founded on the premise that responding to current and emergent problems requires developing our collective capacities to formulate new and better questions, rather than relying on the application of all too familiar ready-made theories. Our themes are mobile and responsive, joining conceptual labor with pressing political concerns in our times, in an effort to understand and act upon better that which is emergent on our collective horizons. The Institute offers a unique and intensive opportunity for fellows to pursue this charge in one of the three week-long seminars designed to cultivate styles of thinking and conceptual vocabularies that address the disparate sites and unequal conditions in which we live.
