Dear Colleagues,

 I am thrilled to announce the launch of the *Institute for Critical Social
Inquiry (ICSI)* <http://www.instituteforcriticalsocialinquiry.org/> at the New
School for Social Research <http://www.newschool.edu/nssr>. Each summer,
the ICSI will offer advanced graduate students and junior faculty from
around the world the opportunity to spend one week at the New School's
campus in Greenwich Village working closely with major thinkers who have
shaped the course of contemporary social inquiry.

 This summer, we are excited to offer three seminars
<http://www.instituteforcriticalsocialinquiry.org/faculty/>: *Secularism*,
led by *Distinguished Professor Talal Asad* (CUNY); *Heidegger* led by *Hans
Jonas Distinguished Professor Simon Critchley *(NSSR); and *Racial
Formations and Justice Today*, led by *James L. Dohr Professor of Law
Patricia J. Williams* (Columbia).

The 2015 Summer Session runs June 14-21. Applications are due February 1st,
2015, but we encourage applicants to seek funding from their home
institutions as early as possible. A limited number of travel grants are
available for US applicants and significant tuition scholarships are
available for applicants from the Global South.

Please take a look at our website and share this announcement widely with
your friends, colleagues, and graduate students.
