Biopower and Semiotics of the Body
The University of Tartu and the Higher School of Economics, Moscow invite graduate, post-graduate and PhD students to apply for the winter school “Biopower and Semiotics of the Body”. This school is part of an international project “Escapes from Modernity” which has been organizing seasonal schools in several European countries since 2007. In February 2017, the school will keep exploring different dimensions of biopolitics, biopower and corporeality and relate them with domestic and foreign policies of major international actors. This year we shall particularly focus on the cultural semiotic reading of various facets of biopolitical practices and relations.
The learning process consists of lectures and interactive classes based on students' inclusive participation. Basic knowledge in social theories, along with skills in comparative and critical analysis based independent thinking are welcome and strongly encouraged.
The tentative plan of classes includes a number of nodal topics:
- The Anatomopolitics of Art Protest (Sergey Medvedev, Higher School of Economics and Andrey Makarychev, University of Tartu)
- Sexual Democracy and the New Cold War: Recent Trends in Nati
Senior B.A., M.A. and PhD students interested to learn more about different facets of biopolitics
The working language is English. Participation is equal to 4 ECTS credits, which will be confirmed by a certificate awarded to each student upon successful completion of the School.
