The Critical Theory Workshop/Atelier de Théorie Critique runs an intensive research program in Paris whose primary objective is to provide an international forum for transdisciplinary and comparative work in critical social theory, in the most expansive sense of the term.

Participants are exposed to the work of contemporary thinkers and engage with current debates in the Francophone world and beyond. Special attention is paid to traditions of thought that have been structurally suppressed in the academy, including Marxism, anarchism, the black radical tradition, anticolonial theory, anti-capitalist feminism and radical ecological thought.

The Workshop, which takes place at the EHESS in central Paris and does not follow the traditional structure of a course, is comprised of three interlocking components:

• Débats: invited speakers debate a common theme or current research projects.

• Rencontres: intellectuals are invited to participate in interviews on their work.

• Groupes de travail: the participants workshop their own research. The overall objective is to bring together a diverse panoply of thinkers in order to cultivate productive, collaborative and transdisciplinary research.
