Keynote Speakers: Ernesto Laclau and Lauren Berlant

The World Picture conference is an annual meeting devoted to theory that
takes place in the intimate setting of Stillwater, Oklahoma. This year’s
meeting will gather theorists from around the world, and from across
disciplines, to address questions of the popular. We are accepting
proposals for papers that address this issue in any number of ways. Some
possible topics might include, but are not limited to:

Styles of the Popular
The Unpopular
Hegemony and Style
Metaphor and the Masses
The Public and the Popular

World Picture is a new online journal of experimental theory:
worldpicturejournal.com. The journal is edited by Brian Price (Oklahoma
State University), John David Rhodes (University of Sussex) and Meghan
Sutherland (Oklahoma State University). Appearing two times per year, each
issue of World Picture will be devoted to a single question or concept that
will be addressed by scholars across disciplines.

Proposals (including a brief bio) should be sent to Brian Price
(brian.price_at_okstate.edu) by June 2.
