ICORN is occupying an entire day of the three week-long intensive programme 'Risk Society and Cosmopolitanism' organised by the School of Critical Theory at the Centre for Humanities, University of Utrecht from 16 January-3 February 2012. ICORN Director Helge Lunde and Fanø Guest Writer Noufel Bouzeboudja will work with advanced students from all over Europe on Tuesday, 24 January in this unique trans-national and interdisciplinary series of seminars in Utrecht.
While Helge Lunde's lecture is 'International solidarity beyond borders and nation-states: The new emerging bonds of hospitality and solidarity between cities of refuge and persecuted writers,' Noufel Bouzeboudja's topic is inspired by the Berber culture in his native Algeria. The title of his lecture is 'Amazigh culture: survival among the fittest.' ICORN Guest Writer Parvin Ardalan spoke at the event last year.
'The School of Critical Theory's Intensive Programme 'Risk Society and Cosmopolitanism' is presenting multi-national and interdisciplinary approaches drawn from the humanities, social sciences, law, philosophy, and international relations. Its focus on the development of cross-national European persepctives in these areas allows for the innovative use of key notions of cosmopolitanism across different national, cultural, and disciplinary traditions.'
