Pelion Summer Lab for Cultural Theory and Experimental Humanities

Please find attached the Call for Participants for the third Pelion Summer Lab for Cultural Theory and Experimental Humanities (PSL), an initiative of the Department of History, Archaeology and Social Anthropology and the Laboratory of Social Anthropology of the University of Thessaly in Volos, Greece.

This 10-day program (August 21-August 31, 2019) will convene an interdisciplinary group of MA students, doctoral candidates, recent PhDs, early career scholars and, in special cases, advanced undergraduate students from fields such as anthropology, history, sociology, arts, political philosophy, gender studies, literature, cultural studies, and communication and new media studies.

This year’s theme - Data & Power - takes on the critical issue of how the production, mining, and manipulation of data through algorithmic procedures has emerged as an increasingly dominant mode of political regulation, capitalist exploitation, identity formation, cultural expression and knowledge generation.
