POLITSCI'14: Political Science Conference
Political Science in Contemporary World: Neoliberalism, Crises and Social Resistance Movements
Theorizing and Experiencing Politics
The main objective of the Political Science Conference is to provide a platform for academic discussions on politics by taking into account both "theory" and "praxis". This year's conference will focus primarily on neoliberalism and its impact on various aspects of the social body: forms of state, social classes, accumulation and political regimes, rationalities of government, social resistance movements, gender regimes etc. The conference will also focus on the questions of contemporary political theory and problematize political science as a discipline. The conference aims to constitute a forum for prolific exchanges between different theoretical perspectives, interests and concerns prevalent within political science.
We welcome papers based on original researches that will broaden our insights into the field of political science. We encourage submission of abstracts derived from papers in other disciplines, hoping to engage in inter-disciplinary and trans-disciplinary dialogues that will be helpful for adding to our understanding of what political theory may mean for people today living in rapidly changing national, social and cultural contexts. Our hope is to initiate fruitful discussions for expanding the horizons of political theory which aims to overcome the limits of traditional boundaries, mainstream perspectives and concerns.
