The Moscow Culture Workshop has been temporarily suspended. We will announce once it will recommence.
The Moscow Culture Workshop is our signature project, an “academic ritual” that shapes the identity of our centre. It gathers leading cultural sociologists from around the world, whose concepts and methods either are aligned with ours, or catalyze a productive tension with them via dialogue.
Each academic year, the workshop gathers a core group, an alliance of bright cultural sociologists, representing leading international research institutions. This core group will gather online once a month throughout the year to closely discuss a research paper draft from one of its participants. Every few months we invite a lecture given by a distinguished scholar.
The workshop thus combines the virtues of a professional master-class with a contribution to international cultural sociology, and with global networking – connections which we hope will intensify existing cooperation between partner cultural sociological centers.
All of the workshops, both lectures and events focused on texts, will be streamed on YouTube so that other researchers and students have an opportunity to watch and to ask questions or make commentaries via YouTube stream.
We believe that such an architecture for the workshop will provide the core group with the effervescence of an intellectual exchange and the intense interpretive power that it creates. In creating such an unordinary format, we borrow inspiration from such successful academic endeavors as the Yale CCS Workshop, Konstanzer Meisterklasse, Fall Conference of the Center for Cultural Sociology at Masaryk University, and the CCS North: Cultural Sociology Discussion Group.
