London Critical Theory Summer School - Public Debates

Each year during the London Critical Theory Summer School, the BIH organises two public debates. The Public Debates take place on the Friday afternoons to end each week with a lively and robust public dicsussion, in which our participating academics from that week join together to discuss Critical Theory and its place within their academic research.

These deabtes are free and open to all. If you would like to receive details about these and other events during the 2018/19 academic year, please join our Birkbeck Institute for the Humanities mailing list.

We record our Public Debates to enable us to share them more broadly - please do listen to the archive below to get an idea of the breadth of the discussions happening in relation to our Summer School.
