London Conference in Critical Thought 2013

Royal Holloway, University of London

6-7 June 2013

Call for Papers (summary - for the full call see http://londonconferenceincriticalthought.wordpress.com/call-for-papers-2...)

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

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.
