CFP: [Cultural-Historical] Subjectivity, creativty and the institution.

full name / name of organization: 
Christopher Crouch

Invitations are extended to those scholars and practitioners in the
creative disciplines, education, history, anthropology and sociology, to
submit proposals for papers for the Subjectivity, Creativity and the
Institution conference to be held at the John Curtin Gallery in Perth,
Australia 9/10.02.09.

The distinguished scholar Professor Raewyn Connell is the keynote speaker.
At the centre of the conference is the premise that, in what Ulrich Beck
calls Second Modernity, and in the conditions of what Zygmunt Bauman calls
Liquid Modernity, the need for a reflexive cosmopolitanism is paramount.
How does this then impact upon the creative individual when negotiating
tradition and the institutions of modernity? How important is the
subjective realm as a space for creativity and how relevant is the social
realm for creative engagement?

Selected papers will be published post conference by the organisers in both
book and electronic formats.
