[ecrea] London Conference in Critical Thought 2013 (June 6-7)

Tue Feb 19 05:32:33 GMT 2013

I am one of the 'stream organizers' for a two-day conference this summer at Royal Holloway, University of London. Info here (with link to pdf with full details for all streams at the bottom of the link-page):

The second annual London Conference in Critical Thought (LCCT) will offer a space for an interdisciplinary exchange of ideas for scholars who work with critical traditions and concerns. It aims to provide opportunities for those who frequently find themselves at the margins of their department or discipline to engage with other scholars who share theoretical approaches and interests. Participation is free (though registration is required).

The conference is divided into thematic streams, each coordinated by different researchers and with separate calls for papers, included in this document. We welcome paper proposals that respond to the particular streams below, as well as papers for inclusion in a general stream.

Touching on broad themes -- including the relevance of historical theories today, responses to the crisis, the body, subjectivities, and praxis and action -- these streams provide the impetus for new points of dialogue. Central to the vision of the conference is an inter-institutional, non-hierarchal, and accessible event that makes a particular effort to embrace emergent thought and the participation of emerging academics, fostering new avenues for critically orientated scholarship and collaboration.

- Concerning Bodies
- Futures of Deconstruction
- Pragmatism and Political Criticism
- Feedback Loops of Feminist Thought and Activism
- Beyond Identity and Critique

Deadline is March 25 for 250 word proposals. My stream is 'The Soul at Work and in Debt' (again, more details in the pdf for this and other streams). If you need any more information, feel free to contact me.

take care
