CALL FOR PAPERS: London Conference in Critical Thought 2014, 27th–28th June, Goldsmiths, University of London

CFP dead­line: 10 March 2014

LCCT 2014 Call for pa­pers (pdf)

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. Read the full call for pa­pers here.
