Critic and crisis is a hendiadys characteristic of modernity. It is a notion going back at least to the eighteenth century with a precise and articulated European location, marking the birth of a concept that is central to our interest: culture. It is a question of understanding that "culture" is the figure of thought (itself a metaphor), that is built through a self-reflection (critic) and through the continuous self-questioning (crisis). The fact that there are many and rich "cultural turns" in today’s cultural studies is the clearest proof that Modernity is conceived from the concept of culture and culture is conceived as critique and crisis.
The henceforth Summer School in Critique/Crisis is addressed to everyone who is interested in this themes: students, Ph.D, researchers, scientists.
