ECOLOGIES OF EMANCIPATION

2nd edition: Science, State and Society /


31.08 – 04.09. 2022
Location: Câmpu Cetății, Mureș County

The second edition of the yearly summer school Ecologies of Emancipation, organized by tranzit.ro/Cluj at Câmpu Cetății, Mureș County, will take place between August 31 and September 4, 2022 and will have as guiding theme the contemporary relations, tensions and interdependences between Science, State, and Society. As usual, the school aims to provide a meeting space and a catalyst for friendly but also qualified discussions between some of the most promising and relevant current research projects and theoretical perspectives from the broad field of social sciences, as so many potential resources for critique and political positioning in today's world.

This year’s edition aims to question the many faceted relations between science, state and society, as a crucial issue whose actuality can be declined on (at least) three axes: in our recent and ongoing past, as the particular modern constellations of science, state and society articulated by the political regimes and social formations of our last century; in the immediate present, as evidenced and dramatized in our current pandemic context with its political instrumentation of science and its corresponding growing social mistrust in both official science and politics; and finally, in our already present future, as the great reshuffling of the relation between science, society and politics urgently demanded by the climate crisis.

UTOPIAS OF SOLIDARITY I.



Summer Camp at Câmpu Cetății

28 July – 01 August, 2022


The summer camp Utopias of Solidarity 2022 has its focus on the activity of certain self-organized, politically engaged groups that were formed in the context of the intersectionality of multiple (financial, economic, ecological, migration, housing, care, political etc.) crises. By bringing together critical academic/professional approaches and practices based on the principles of solidarity and/or anticapitalism, we seek answers to the following questions: what utopia could mean for us today, or what can solidarity mean within our local context and environment of limited or scarce resources, but also to what possibilities for knowledge and resource alignment can we conceive in order to enable ourselves to cope on an everyday level with the effects of the aforementioned multiple crises that surround us?

Call for participation - Ecologies of Emancipation

-organized by tranzit.ro/Cluj /


1- 5 September 2021

Location: Câmpu Cetății, Mureș County


Between 1-5 September, in Câmpu Cetății, Mureș County, tranzit.org/Cluj will organize the first edition of a yearly summer school dedicated to exploring new critical perspectives in the field of humanities and social sciences. The school aims to provide a meeting space and a catalyst for friendly but also qualified discussions between some of the most promising and relevant current research directions in the field of social sciences, as potential resources for critique and political positioning in today's world.

This year's edition has as its generic theme "Ecologies of Emancipation", in the broadest sense of the terms and in the most diverse configurations of their relationship: what is the relationship between the different systems and subsystems of modernity and their components or inhabitants, and to what extent we can conceive and articulate this relationship in a way that is both politically emancipatory and ecologically realistic. Besides the immediate issue of the global climate crisis and its increasingly frequent and obvious effects, this year's meeting will also try to take a lateral look at this framework of issues, articulating a broader and more multidisciplinary perspective on the solidarity and tensions between the different systems of modernity, as well as on their specific impact and significance in the context of today's political, social and climate crisis.

Non-linear narratives of the Enlightenment

Lecture by VERONICA LAZĂR /


Friday, 25 June 2021, at 7 PM.

Link for the online event:
https://zoom.us/j/94078367667

Moderator: Dana Domșodi

After decades of sophisticated historical research and professional myth busting, academic and popular images of the Enlightenment seem today to be further apart than ever. However, the political question of the legacies of the Enlightenment, whether salutary or deleterious, is once again in season. This talk will argue, firstly, that these legacies are contextual, contradictory, open-ended and ready to be appropriated in creative ways; and secondly, that more than theories, values or attitudes, critical or political – the quest for peace, rationalism, secularism, tolerance, rights of man etc. -, it was above all a few epistemic dislocations brought about by the Enlightenment that proved to be revolutionary for the modern understanding of history, culture and society.

Cul-de-Sac Economics: Europe on the Brink of Climate Meltdown

Moderated by Attila Szigeti

Science tells us that we are playing a pyramid scheme with the habitability of our Earth. It also tells is that we are getting close to the panic and unravelling stages of that pyramid scheme, with a stabilization of warming at below 2 degrees Celsius being our optimistic scenario. This reckless game is embedded in institutional complementarities that make it politically and economically costly to arrest the causal generators of environmental collapse. It seems that as a species we can’t help but have the greatest death wish of all.
