[eccr] a paper on Schmitt and the public sphere?

Tue May 03 13:50:36 GMT 2005

>Greetings to all,
>You might have heard of the "Workshops in Political Theory" organised by 
>Jules Townshend (Manchester Metropolitan) and Joe Femia (Liverpool). The 
>first one took place in Manchester last year, and the second one will be 
>there too, on 7-9 September. It consists of approximately 15 simultaneous 
>workshops. The format is very conducive to discussions: no public other 
>than the actual participants of the workshop (and perhaps the odd visitor 
>from another workshop), and each person gets 30 minutes for their 
>presentation and 30 for the discussion of their paper, although people 
>tend to go back to previous papers during the 4 half-day sessions. For 
>more info seee 
>I am co-organising one of the workshops (on the public sphere) together 
>with Noel O'Sullivan from Hul. Our workshop already has a full list of 
>participants, but we are still interested in an imaginative paper on Carl 
>Schmitt. More specifically, we are looking for someone who has worked or 
>is willing to work on a paper on the notion of publicness in Schmitt's 
>reflection on the political. The idea is to address his silence on this 
>issue given that Schmitt famously claims that the enemy is always a public 
>enemy without elaborating on what does he means by 'publicness' (except 
>for the commonplace references to the distinction between inimicus/hostis 
>and a few passing remarks).
>Is there anyone there interested to take up the challenge of writing on 
>this subject?
