2015 EDITION: CRITICAL THEORIES
The rise of globalization processes requires a radical redefinition of categories and analytical tools, in the direction of a growing hybridization among different traditions and points of view. The second edition of the Bologna-Duke Summer School is intended as a dialogue among these different traditions of the heterogeneous discipline known as critical theory.
The 2015 edition on “Critical Theories” took place from June 22nd to July 3th 2015 at the Department of History, Cultures and Civilization of Bologna University.
