[Commlist] CFP: Decelerated Academy? Enclosures, Enthusiasms, and Epidemics

Tue Mar 23 13:49:55 GMT 2021

As an institution, the University faces the challenge of its own survival in the 21st century. The educational ecosystem that integrates it is under pressure and some hard conditions that restrict the work of teachers and researchers. The ‘Accelerated Academy’ project is promoted by an international group of academics willing to problematize the university institution. The global aim of the initiative is to critically reflect and rethink the spaces and times that constitute the university as an institution.

Edition #8 of the ‘accelerated academy’ arrives in Valencia in October 2021 with the title: “Decelerated Academy? Enclosures, Enthusiasms, and Epidemics”.

The event is sponsored and co-organized by the University of Valencia (Spain) and CRITICOM and it is open to the entire international university, academic and research community. The conference will feature the opening and closing lectures by César Rendueles and Remedios Zafra and expects to open spaces for debate and the construction of alternatives for a ‘better university’.

The main topics of the congress section of the event cover a great variety of points of view:

- COVID-19 as leverage of previous debates of knowledge production and creative work. - Creative production within lockdown measures and online environments. - Intersectional inequalities as key factors in the pandemic consequences of creative labor.
- Lasting and new hierarchies in Academic labor and their visibility.
- North-South relationships regarding the investigation and the diffusion of results. - Deceleration of Academic workflows. - Uncertainty in future work and their emotional (enthusiasm) and material (Academic duties) implications.
