Call for Papers: London Conference in Critical Thought (6-7 June 2013)

Posted on 19/02/2013


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. We welcome paper proposals that respond to the particular streams below, as well as papers for inclusion in a general stream.

Concerning Bodies

Futures of Deconstruction

Pragmatism and Political Criticism

Feedback Loops of Feminist Thought and Activism

Beyond Identity and Critique

Spinozan Politics

The Soul at Work and in Debt

New Sensibilities in the Everyday

Sociocultural Criticism After Lehman Brothers

Critical Theory and Psychoanalysis

Critique, Action, Ethics

On Representation/Non-representation

The New Amateur

New Materialisms

Three Questions for the Emancipation of Latin America

Jean-Luc Nancy in Fragments

Higher Education in Crisis

Details of these streams can be found on the LCCT website: http://londonconferenceincriticalthought.files.wordpress.com/2013/02/lcct-2013-call-for-papers.pdf

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.

Please send papers/presentations proposals with the relevant stream indicated in the subject line to londoncriticalconference@gmail.com. Submissions should be no more than 250 words and be received by the 25th March 2013.
