Tangier Conference/Performance

Call for Papers for a Panel for the Tangier Conference: Performance in/and of the public sphere Tangier Tetouan Morocco June 1 - 3, 2013

The conference aims at reframing the discussion on the public sphere and questioning the performative articulations of political critique.

PANEL
Points of View: The Public Sphere Crossing Disciplines and Cultures

Starting from Habermas' Public Sphere to the historical and current movements through-out the world to present and represent (in) these spaces, what does your field (for example psychology, sociology, literature) and/or culture (for example, the indignados in Spain) have to offer for the discussion? What is the debate, what are the discussions, what are the performances and what are the outcomes in literature, psychology, sociology, linguistics, culture and of course performance?

Jürgen Habermas defines the public sphere as “network for communicating information and points of view… the stream of communication are, in the process, filtered and synthesized in such a way that they coalesce into bundles of topically specified public opinions.”
