Description

The ICI Berlin Institute for Cultural Inquiry announces ten post-doctoral fellowships within the core project Errans.

Recognizing that a critique of the ideals of productivity, success, goal-orientation, and determination is necessarily paradoxical, the ICI Core Project Errans takes the shifting meanings of erring as a starting point to explore the critical potentials and risks of embracing error, randomness, failure, and non-teleological temporalities.

The inquiry is intended to reach across different disciplines and discourses, relating not only to the knowledge of life, diaspora, or arts of failing, but also, for instance, to aesthetics, theories of play and games, or random-walk models in (finance) mathematics.

The ICI Berlin invites scholars from all disciplines to engage in a joint exploration of Errans. We especially welcome applications from individuals who will contribute to diversity and equal opportunity in scholarly research.
