SIS Scholarship: Politics of Emancipation

We are pleased to announce the second SIS Scholarship: Politics of Emancipation

The SIS Politics of Emancipation Scholarship is sponsored by Francesca Martinez Tagliavia, owner of the Organic Farm Villa Adriana where SIS is located.

 

Who it is for:
The SIS Politics of Emancipation Scholarship is for writers and researchers that apply for the Thematic Residency of the first residency period of SIS, April – July 2020 at Villa Adriana in Danigarci.

 

Candidates that submit a Thematic Residency research or writing proposal which entails research in Sicily and that adheres to the theme, “Politics of Emancipation” are automatically in the running for this scholarship.

 

The first thematic residency of The International Studies for Sicily (SIS) invites residents to question and explore the political critique of power, forms of protest, revolution, transnational and local collective movements of revolt, tactics of emancipation, infra-politics of the individuals as well as the riots and uprisings of the subalterns specifically from the perspective of Southern Italy, the Mediterranean and the global South.

 

The residents are invited to elaborate specifically, but not exclusively, on the following issues:

     • Techniques, practices, knowledge and politics of influence and counter-influence: a transnational and intersectoral approach

     • Economic and agricultural policies of the South and the “Right to Remain” of the youth

     • Political ecology and the Green New Deal

     • Feminism and ecology in the context of contemporary global / local struggles

     • Chthulucene and other assemblages of nature and culture, ecology and technology

     • Politics of imagination: imaginal politics, escapism (in cinema, in literature...), political science fiction, heterotopies, anthropology of anomaly, speculative fiction and other kinds of alternative narratives of the present

 

Selection:

All candidates for the SIS Politics of Emancipation Scholarship must apply for a Thematic Residency at Villa Adriana in Danigarci as specified in the Call for Applications, noting their motivation for being awarded a SIS Politics of Emancipation Scholarship.
