Toward A Manual of Printed Matter (af)fairs
6 November 2017: Using the format of a manual, this workshop constructs a potential guide for artists–researchers, whose work is embedded in and invests the complex networks around art publishing. A number of strategies within a publishing practice are identified in order to describe today’s challenges of the printed book; of designing theory (or indeed thinking); and also of conducting a coherent and complete market and management analysis, that goes hand in hand with the transforming forces of the machines of social production and social knowledge. The concern here is independent publishing; forums and formatting; artist as editor / editor as artist; artists’ books and their markets or sites–their ambivalent relation to domineering regimes of mental work and the production of value through creativity.

The ‘Judeo-Christian Rule of Law’ and the ‘Reformation’
24 October 2017: The gist of this course is revisionist: to revise and criticize major assumptions of political sciences and of sociology (about the alleged rise of a secular power state as a main pillar of Modern Western Society, i.e., the “Tilly thesis”) that have been directing the thinking of historians on the relation of religion and politics between the 1900s and 1980s. These assumptions cannot anymore be brought into line with the empirical findings of historians of the early modern era over the last 50 years.

Forskningsmanøvrer – undervejs med en afhandling
KURSET ER UDSKUDT TIL FORÅRET 2018 - NYE DATOER VIL BLIVE ANNONCERET: Kurset handler om at producere viden og tekst undervejs i et ph.d.-forløb, og ikke først de sidste tre måneder. Skabelse af viden og tekst involverer ofte en eller anden form for analyse. Skrivearbejdet i et ph.d.-forløb begrænser sig ikke alene til det arbejde, man lægger i at skrive kapitler til den endelige afhandling. I hele forløbet skriver man tekst og den tekst, man skriver, tjener forskellige formål og skal imødekomme forskellige kriterier, ligesom den på forskellige måder bringer ph.d.-projektet videre. At skrive tekst er ikke en ydre proces, men er viklet ind i forskningsproces, erkendelsesprocesser og analysearbejde. Vi opererer her med et analysebegreb, som naturligvis involverer analyse af empirisk materiale, men udvider også analyse til at omfatte analyse af forskningsspørgsmål, analyse af teori og analyse og sortering af egen tekst.

The Digital Revolution in Archaeology: Theory, Method and Practice
12 October - 28 November 2017: This course will examine the ways that the digital revolution is changing archaeology and the wider digital humanities. We will introduce a number of different digital methodologies and explore how they can be used in archaeology and the humanities, some will likely be familiar and an extension of current practice and some will be more cutting-edge. The course will be tailored toward the participant's needs and research aims. At all stages we will examine the 'how' but more importantly we will also consider the 'why'. Participants of the course will leave with an understanding of the potential digital methods available to them, practical experience in applying some of these methods and a critical understanding of which methods are most appropriate for their research and why they should (or shouldn't) be applied. The course will be a mixture of lectures and practical sessions and will in some parts be directed by the participants, particularly in the choice of digital methods to examine in more detail.

The institutionalisation of education: a socio-historical approach
4 - 6 October 2017: How have education systems been instituted and how are they associated with the societies that gave rise to them? To answer these and related questions, the course will examine education through institutional theorisation, at macro-sociological and comparative-historical approaches. The macro-sociological perspective will help students trace the web of relations between education and other social institutions. The comparative-historical inquiry will make evident that education, as society overall, is inseparable from its history.
