London Conference in Critical Thought 2014: Goldsmiths, University of London, 27-28 June 2014

Call for Papers
http://londoncritical.org/

The third 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.

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-oriented scholarship and collaboration.

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. In addition, papers may be proposed as part of a general stream, i.e. with no specific stream in mind. Spanning a range of broad themes, these streams provide the impetus for new points of dialogue.

Thematic areas include:

Aesthetic Refusals: Oppositional Citizenship and Public Culture
Conceptions and Practices of Critical Pedagogy
Critical Approaches to Care Relationships
(Dis)orders of Migration
Dissenting Methods: Engaging Legacies of the Past, Defining Critical Futures
‘entitled’
‘everyday political’
How Does One Think Difference?
Legal Critique: Positions, Negotiations and Strategies
Moving Through the Intersection? Interrogating Categories and Postintersectional Politics
Philosophy and Critical Thought Inside and Outside The University
Pragmatism and Critical Traditions
Sounding the Counterfactual: Hyperstition and Audial Futurities
