The venue

The workshop will be held at the Minerva Humanities Center (Gilman Building, Room 496) of the Tel Aviv University. The Center is located in the Gillian Building in the Ramat Aviv campus (here some info on how to get there).

The Minerva Humanities Center promotes innovative interdisciplinary research in the humanities. The Center holds forums for reflection and intellectual debate that bring together researchers from a variety of national, cultural, and disciplinary backgrounds. It strives to establish a learning community of research students, postdoctoral and senior researchers; initiates collaborations with leading academic institutions and researchers worldwide; and works to bring research produced in Israel to a wide international audience.

The Center supports research projects dealing with historical or current reciprocal ties between knowledge, culture, and politics, and with the development of innovative teaching and writing methods that translate the theoretical interest in such issues into tangible academic work. The Center’s researchers are attuned to the challenges peculiar to the present moment in time and to the current conditions for the production and organization of knowledge in the humanities. The Center strives to broaden the target audience of the humanities and amplify their public influence while at the same time carrying on the tradition of critical thought that has always been associated with them.
