Join us for thought-provoking discussions with world renowned scholars at the third annual Sydney School for Critical Social Thought.

This upcoming Institute of Social Justice (ISJ) event will see ISJ researchers and invited academics and intellectuals from around the world gather in North Sydney, creating an opportunity for dialogue, mutual learning and critical engagement.

Held from 16 May to 1 June, the program features a number of key events including an international symposium, masterclasses, public lectures and, for the first time, a postgraduate student conference organized by students in ISJ’s Doctoral Program for Social and Political Thought.

ISJ Director, Professor Nikolas Kompridis, said the third annual Sydney School for Critical Social Thought is certain to be a very exciting and invaluable two weeks of discussion and exploration.

“This intellectually enlivening annual gathering offers us the opportunity to learn from each other and to strengthen our international relationships,” Professor Kompridis said.
