Welcome to the website for the Critical Theory Workshop/Atelier de Théorie Critique, which is a dual-language intensive research program that takes place every summer at the Sorbonne and the École des Hautes Études en Sciences Sociales in Paris, France. Providing an international platform for trans-disciplinary, cross-cultural and committed work in critical social theory (in the broadest sense of the term), the CTW/ATC was founded by Gabriel Rockhill and is sponsored by Villanova University’s Graduate Program in Philosophy.

You will find here a description of the Workshop in general, an archive of past programs, a video gallery of recorded events, an application for prospective participants, and much more.
