>ENGAGING BAUDRILLARD:
>An International Multi-Disciplinary Conference
>
>4-6th September 2006
>
>at
>
>Swansea University, United Kingdom
>
>
>Celebrating the establishment of the
>International Journal of Baudrillard Studies we
>are pleased to announce the first international,
>multi-disciplinary conference on Baudrillard's
>work to be held in the United Kingdom.
>
>Jean Baudrillard is one of the world's most
>well-known, important, and talked about
>thinkers; the author of over 30 books and
>innumerable articles; and the inventor of a vast
>array of influential concepts and suggestive
>strategies that have touched upon an extremely diverse range of fields.
>
>Although his work was initially received within
>the context of debates over postmodernism, the
>last decade has witnessed a more rounded and
>nuanced appreciation of the full complexity of
>Baudrillard's oeuvre. The enrichment of our
>engagement with his ideas, concepts and
>strategies has primarily been accomplished in a
>variety of disciplinary contexts. However, the
>proliferation of engagements across a host of
>academic disciplines and non-academic arenas
>poses the problem of how we can gather together
>and make sense of the numerous versions of Baudrillard.
>
>Accordingly, the conference aims to explore how
>Baudrillard's work has been taken up within
>different disciplines; to consider how these
>relate to one another; and to ponder their
>likely legacy. Thus, the conference will bring
>together people from all disciplines who have
>engaged with Baudrillard's ideas, including enthusiasts, critics and
sceptics.
>
>Abstracts are invited for papers from scholars
>in all disciplines. The conference will be
>organised into panels, themed by academic
>discipline, exploring Baudrillard's contribution
>to each field and considering how specific
>scholars have taken up, interpreted and employed
>his ideas. Possible disciplinary panels include:
>

>Participants should also please indicate which
>disciplinary panel(s) they would like to present
>within. Possible panels are listed above but
>suggestions for others are also welcome at this
>initial stage. As the conference aims to promote
>the future of Baudrillard studies we would
>especially welcome abstracts from doctoral
>students & non-academics currently employing
>Baudrillardian ideas and themes in their work. A
>selection of papers will be published in (1)
>International Journal of Baudrillard Studies;
>(2) special issues of other international journals; and (3) an edited book.
>
>Located in the South Wales region of the United
>Kingdom, with direct and easy access to Cardiff
>and London, the Swansea University campus is
>flanked by parkland, gardens, and leisure
>activities. The campus enjoys an enviable
>beachfront location on the edge of the Gower
>Peninsula. The 19-mile Gower Peninsula was the
>UK's first designated area of outstanding
>natural beauty, and its picturesque coastline
>with long, sandy beaches and rocky coves has
>made it one of the UK=B9s premier surfing venues.
