This workshop is aimed at PhD researchers from different disciplines. Together, we want to engage in exploring ideas of knowledge beyond mainstream, canonical ideas, and deepen our understanding of how we, as academic researchers, can grasp and create interdisciplinary knowledge. Since the affective turn in the social and cultural sciences, the conceptualization of ratio and emotion as two different spheres has been contested in multiple ways. Cognition and knowledge are no longer limited to rationality and reason, and various scholars highlight that knowledge has embodied, experienced and felt dimensions. We want to take up this strand of research and explore the multiple (im-)possibilities of cognition and knowledge in creative and innovative ways. As we believe knowledge can help to overcome hierarchical power asymmetries, in our workshop, we especially aim to engage with critical epistemologies in order to deconstruct powerful binaries. A special focus will be on affective queerfeminist, decolonial and intersectional epistemologies.


We encourage the application of PhD students at different stages of their thesis.
