Rethinking Extractivist Capitalism – Interdisciplinary Autumn Research School

*Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s YISARES Autumn Research School had to be postponed to October 2021. The exact dates will be announced shortly.*

To reach a deeper understanding of extractivist capitalism
as a global logic of accumulation, this Autumn School aims at mapping its different forms across transnational spaces and emerging relational geographies including current developments in finance, logistics and digital economies. Such a mapping requires a “retooling” of theories, analytical frameworks, and methodologies that help us engage with the multiple contradictions of this particular logic of capitalism – in particular to rethink the Global South into this logic. To do so, the Autumn School will address the political economy of extractivist accumulation, its ecological and social implications, the attendant transformations of (post-)colonial knowledge, juridical and political re-orderings and authoritarian tendencies, discursive and cultural practices of legitimation, and ultimately questions of dissent, protest and resistance.

The Autumn School offers participants an outstanding learning environment with faculty members including Deval Desai, Michi Knecht, Sandro Mezzadra, Martin Nonhoff, Shalini Randeria, Ranabir Samaddar, Klaus Schlichte, Ingo H. Warnke and Ruth Wodak. The intensive interdisciplinary programme is composed of six content modules, plus a hands-on research design workshop module and includes lectures, Q&A-sessions, interactive small-group roundtable sessions, micro-group sessions, and plenary debate. The programme aims at enhancing the participants’ critical engagement with a variety of cutting-edge disciplinary approaches, and fostering lasting collaborative international exchange among students and scholars from the Global South and North.

We invite applications from outstanding MA-students, PhD-candidates and postdoctoral researchers in political, social or cultural science, geography, linguistics, law, international relations or related disciplines. Participants are selected on the basis of the quality of their applications, which includes a letter of motivation, an academic CV and a brief research proposal connected to the topic of the autumn school.
