Terra Critica

Terra Critica is an international research network in the humanities, bringing together scholars specializing in critical and cultural theory, as well as practicioners in education, activism and the arts. Its aim is to reexamine critical theory and critique under the conditions of the 21st century – given our immanent, terran existences, globally entangled across flows of capital, people, and ideas and living in ecological and economical multidependences.

Terra Critica wishes to strengthen the Critical Humanities as a crucial site for critical analyses of our present, meeting regularly for workshops and other activities, aiming to provide a platform for discussion and publication, exchange of ideas and knowledges.

The network was initiated by Birgit Mara Kaiser and Kathrin Thiele in 2012, with a group of core members and a wider circle of participants to the regular meetings. It has been supported by Utrecht University and the NWO-Aspasiafunds, and continues to be supported by its different contributing institutions in various ways.
