R.C. SmithCONTINENTAL AND ANALYTICAL POLITICAL THEORY: AN INSURMOUNTABLE DIVIDE?

28 May 2013

School of Politics & International Relations
Queen Mary, University of London

Analytical and Continental political theory are divided not only over substantial issues, but also over the very nature of political theorising. Theorists working within one tradition view with scepticism the work and conclusions of theorists within the other tradition, and the two traditions often speak past one another because they do not agree what theorising amount to in the first place. Further, the division is also marked by different conceptions of politics and the political. Consequently, Analytical and Continental theorists have different understandings of the role of and relationship between philosophy and politics.

We invite contributions that address the divisions between Analytical and Continental political theory, and between liberal normative theory and post-structuralism. Is it possible to bridge the different traditions? If so, what would this entail? If divisions will remain, what is the exact nature of those divisions? Are they primarily political or philosophical? And are there approaches that eschew these divisions? Contributions can be comparative discussions between different approaches, analyses of specific debates, or readings of texts that address the divisions in an indirect way.

Paper givers should send an abstract of no more than 300 words to the conference organisers: Clayton Chin (c.chin@qmul.ac.uk) and Lasse Thomassen (l.thomassen@qmul.ac.uk) by 28 February 2013. Notifications by 15 March 2013.

Keynote speaker: Professor Paul Patton, University of New South Wales

Roundtable participants: Professor Paul Patton, University of New South Wales, Professor David Owen (University of Southampton) and Dr David Howarth (University of Essex)

CRITICAL STUDIES IN EDUCATION – CALL FOR PAPERS

CALL FOR PAPERS

Please circulate within your networks

CRITICAL STUDIES IN EDUCATION
An international peer-reviewed journal
3 issues per annum
ISSN 1750-8487 (print)   1750-8495 (online)
Published by Routledge

Critical Studies in Education is one of the few international journals solely devoted to a critical sociology of education. Two questions frame the journal’s critical approach to research: (1) whose interests are served by current social arrangements in education and, (2) from the standpoint of the least advantaged, what can be done about inequitable arrangements? Informed by this approach, articles published in the journal draw on post-structural, feminist, postcolonial and other critical orientations to critique education systems and to identify alternatives for education policy, practice and research.

The journal welcomes submissions of the highest quality and importance, which make original theoretical and/or empirical contributions, and are aimed at moving the field forward. Submissions may be focused on education policy and/or practice (including pedagogy) across formal education contexts (e.g. schooling, vocational and further education, higher education) as well as informal settings (e.g. television, communities, the internet). Submissions typically focus on power relations associated with gender, class (/poverty), ethnicity and the reproduction of disadvantage.

CALL FOR PAPERS
While submissions that meet this general brief are most welcome, we are also seeking papers in line with the following theme:

CRITICAL VISIONS FOR THE FUTURE OF EDUCATION

Increasingly, education is being reduced to what can be measured, often in quantitative terms that do not adequately capture all there is to education and which are then used to compare students, institutions and nations. At the same time, we live in a world that is becoming increasingly complex where these accounting systems do not seem adequate. In this context, how can we create spaces for different imaginations for education? How can we create opportunities for education to be different?

Articles addressing the following topics are especially welcome:
•    How can education researchers contribute to what counts as evidence in contexts of policy and practice?
•    What kind of education research do we need to respond to the pressing issues of our times, such as climate change, terror and financial crises?

Manuscripts can be submitted to Critical Studies in Education online by visiting: http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/rcse
