Navigating the Grey Zone: Complicity, Resistance and Solidarity, University of Edinburgh, Deadline for Applications 15 December 2017

In June 2018 the University of Edinburgh is hosting an interdisciplinary Summer School entitled “Navigating the Grey Zone: Complicity, Resistance and Solidarity.” This event targets PhD students and early career researchers (within 4 years of obtaining their doctorate). We will explore the complexities of complicity in and resistance to systemic human rights violations. Moreover, we will consider the ethical and political value of art for shedding light on the ambiguous reality of political responsibility and fostering relations of political solidarity. The Summer School is part of the interdisciplinary ERC research Project GREYZONE, and we aim to bring together perspectives from political theory, political science, law, history, sociology, cultural studies, aesthetics and art.
