CPT Initiative: The School of Materialist Research

The School of Materialist Research (SMR) is an informal graduate and post-doc level program that offers seminars and workshops that address the materialisms running through contemporary science, philosophy, art, mathematics, design, architecture and politics. SMR is an international platform, founded by the Center for Philosophical Technologies at Arizona State University and the Institute of Social Sciences and Humanities, Skopje that functions as a global online school combining education, research and mentorship to advance academic study at the intersection the Social Sciences and Humanities and the STEM sciences. Two more institutions from Europe are expected to join the platform in the upcoming months. The Spring and Summer Sessions are offered for free and open to the public serving as promotional events that illustrate the programmatic commitment and style of work offered by the School for Materialist Research.
