We are pleased to announce a call for papers for the Critical Governance Studies conference at Warwick on 13-14 December this year. The goal of the conference is to bring together scholars and critical practitioners challenging orthodoxies and developing critical approaches to the study and practice of governance. At a time of crisis and discontent, and with the renaissance of social critique, we believe that the conference is timely and will enhance critical governance research across the social sciences. The conference is cross-disciplinary and we encourage colleagues to submit abstracts on themes that might include, among others, critical approaches to the governance of citizens, space, money, networks, risk, security, science and The University. The conference theme is ‘challenging orthodoxies’ and we ask colleagues to address it in their abstracts by describing a problematic orthodoxy, subjecting it to critical challenge and outlining new areas of inquiry and new social practices based on the critical approach. At the same time, we invite people to interrogate the key terms, ‘governance’, ‘orthodoxy’ and ‘critique’.

Individual abstract submissions are welcome from now until 31st October. Proposals for panels and streams following these guidelines are also welcome. Conference registration opens on 1st June with an early bird rate of £250, plus accommodation, rising to £300 plus accommodation from 1st October. Details of how to register and book accommodation on campus will be available online from 1st June. Please email abstracts and other proposals to esme.farrington@wbs.ac.uk.

Please circulate this information to relevant contacts and networks and submit abstracts and other proposals to esme.farrington@wbs.ac.uk.  Esme is available on 02476 522525 if you have any other queries.  

Thanks

Socialism and Hope

SOCIALISM 2010

Ideas for Changing the World
Revolutionary politics, debate and entertainment
June 17-20, Chicago
July 1-4, Oakland
http://www.socialismconference.org

With the economy in shambles and with wars and occupations continuing, the challenge to change these conditions confronts us all. More than a year ago, millions placed their hopes in Barack Obama and the Democrats to solve these problems. But after months of broken promises and concessions to conservatives, jobs are scarce, the banks are unregulated, and full equality for LGBT people remains elusive.

Socialism 2010—to be held in both Chicago and Oakland—will provide an unparalleled opportunity for new and veteran activists and scholars to explore questions about how we got into this mess and how we can get out of it.

Last year, more than 1,800 people turned out to explore the history of struggles of ordinary people, to learn about radical figures who led social movements and to debate theoretical questions that can help us change the world.

Join us for more than 100 talks on issues such as: What is the Real Marxist Tradition?, Race in the Obama Era, Capitalism, Climate Change, and the Future of Humanity, Abortion and Women’s Liberation, and Building a New Left in the Obama Era.

Don’t miss the chance to meet, talk and socialize with hundreds of others like you who want to build an alternative to a system of greed, racism, war and oppression.
