The Gregynog Ideas Lab Summer School ran for the first time in 2012 and was a resounding success. Participants found it “a great thinking space,” “intellectually rewarding and stimulating,” with “a friendly, non-competitive mood, friendly and helpful lecturers, interesting topics.” One participant summed it up as “absolutely amazing: great diversity of activities, ideal number of participants, perfect location.”

Designed as a unique opportunity for graduate students and academics engaged in work in international politics from a range of critical, postcolonial, feminist, post-structural and psychoanalytic traditions to return to key themes and thinkers and to re-examine their own work, advanced methods training will be a key part of the programme, and there will be opportunities for participants to present their own research if they wish. Practical workshops, a series of roundtables, themed seminars based on assigned pre-readings and one-to-one research surgeries by our guest professors provide a week of intensive immersion in these traditions for those new to the field or isolated in their own institutions in a supportive and friendly residential environment.

Our provisional list of guest professors for 2014 is:

o Michael Dillon

o Jenny Edkins

o Kimberly Hutchings

o Tom Lundborg

o Himadeep Muppidi

o Michael J Shapiro

o Erzsebet Strausz

o R.B.J. Walker (tbc)

o Andreja Zevnik
