Psychology is increasingly being challenged to recognize and account for the limitations of a naturalized and individualized view of psychological phenomena that has been used in the past to justify the establishment. To do so, it is necessary to theorize, revisiting old categories and concepts, shedding light on the historical, dialogical, social, technical and political nature of psychological phenomena. As Michael Billig argued (2008), to dispute the present through the disputation of the past is a necessary task of any serious psychologist interested in the historical and social constitution of individuality, subjectivity, identity, learning through life, and well-being, among others. Therefore, theorizing (including their own accepted frameworks) should have a central place in critical psychologies, conceived of as those psychologies that in different ways state the socio-historical character of individuality.
The summer school is organized by the Doctoral Program in Psychology, Universidad Alberto Hurtado, Chile, and is sponsored by the International Society for Theoretical Psychology (ISTP), with the aim of contributing to the crafting of critical psychology through the theorization of the study of subjectivity and childhood.
The summer school is directed at doctoral students and researchers interested in understanding the socio-historical, political and dialogical nature of subjectivity and childhood. We invite doctoral students and researchers to join a collaborative, formative space of rigorous and critical thinking.
