The International Consortium of Critical Theory Programs (ICCTP) condemns the recent efforts of the French minister of higher education, Frédérique Vidal, to discredit critical theories under the spurious rubric of “Islamo-gauchisme.” Her inflammatory caricature was presented before the National Assembly on February 16, 2021 when she called for a persecutory investigation into research areas such as postcolonial, decolonial, and gender and critical race studies. We find this proposal to be a dangerous and unacceptable violation of academic freedom. Disparaging entire academic fields as “divisive” and “gangrenous” falsifies these diverse fields and impedes the free circulation of knowledge. The term “Islamo-leftism” …Read More

The International Consortium of Critical Theory Programs (ICCTP) notes with great concern the ongoing coercion of universities in Turkey and condemns the recent appointment by midnight decree of a rector to Boğaziçi University against the will of the faculty and in violation of the university’s democratic practices. There is little doubt that the appointment on January 1, 2021 of Professor Melih Bulu is politically motivated. The new rector is affiliated with the ruling party, AKP, and neither the university administration nor faculty members were consulted concerning the nomination. Boğaziçi is a world-renowned university with a long history of autonomy. It …Read More

Chiasma: A Site for Thought is pleased to invite submissions for its eighth issue, on theoretical and philosophical investigations on the ‘non.’ Considerations of the ‘non’ arise as a parados in Western philosophical inquiry as early as Plato’s Sophist, with the Eleatic Stranger’s account of non-being as the capacity for change in Being. Here, ‘non-being’ instigates a position as both negative and positive: both lack of being or nothing and the productive motor of being via becoming. More recent theoretical investigation has charged the ‘non’ as a fundamental and paradoxical attribute of being: seen in Gilles Deleuze’s non-being or ?being and Theodor Adorno’s …Read More
