CRITICAL THEORY AND CRISIS – FINAL CALL FOR PAPERS

FINAL CALL FOR PAPERS
Stream on Critical Theory and Crisis (as part of the 7th Annual Critical Theory Conference of Rome)
May 8-10, 2014
John Felice Rome Center of Loyola University Chicago
Via Massimi 114/A, Rome. Italy

‘In the meantime, the crisis, to which sociology must prove itself equal, is no longer that of bourgeois order alone but rather it literally threatens the physical continuance of society as a whole.’ Theodor Adorno ‘On the Logic of the Social Sciences.’

‘Causality has withdrawn as it were into the totality; in the midst of its system it becomes indistinguishable. The more its concept, under scientific mandate, dilutes itself to abstraction, the less the simultaneous threads of the universally socialized society, which are condensed to an extreme, permit one condition to be traced back with evidence to others.’ Adorno ‘On the Crisis of Causality’

‘As soon as these processes do not merge smoothly into one another but become independent of one another, the crisis is there’. Karl Marx

The ongoing global social crisis, and its generalization of misery, has proven to be a challenge for a group of theoretical orientations that advance a critical theory of society. This stream aims to address these unhappy circumstances by examining the topic(s) of critical theory and crisis.

Possible topics include:

* Accounts and/or criticisms of different theories of crisis in the critical theories of society of Adorno, Horkheimer, Benjamin, Sohn-Rethel, Grossmann, Pollack, Neumann, Marcuse, Krahl, Schmidt, Habermas, Honneth etc.

* Modifications of these, or other figures, critical theories of society to account for the contemporary social crisis.
New formulations of critical theories of society that address the current crisis.

* Criticisms of new formulations of critical theories of society that address the current crisis.

* New interpretations of traditional concepts in critical theory such as ‘reification’, ‘the legitimacy crisis’, ‘recognition theory’, ‘dialectical social theory’, ‘philosophies of history’ etc. in light of the current crisis.

* New interpretations of the work of figures that were a seminal influence on the critical theory of society, such as Marx, Weber, Freud, Nietzsche, Lukacs etc. in relation to a critical theory of crisis.

* The utilization of concepts such as social reproduction, surplus population, secular crisis, creative destruction, negativity, nihilism etc. in critical theories of crisis.

If you are interested in presenting a paper or organizing a panel (of up to 6 speakers) for this stream, please submit a 1 page abstract by February 22, 2014 (including name and institutional affiliation). Abstracts should be submitted by email to the stream coordinator Chris O’Kane at theresonlyonechrisokane@gmail. com

If instead you are interested in presenting a paper or organizing a panel (of up to 6 speakers) on other relevant topics in Critical Theory at the conference, please see the general call for papers here:

BOOM!

BOOM! Growth, Form and Sustainable Bodies 1946–67

4-5 April

History of Art Department

University College London

 

CALL FOR PAPERS

This conference is organised to coincide with the Richard Hamilton retrospective at the Tate Modern in February 2014, which will include the reconstruction of Growth and Form (ICA, 1951). Growth and Form negotiated a problematic that in the two decades after the end of WWII preoccupied different strands of artistic and architectural research across Europe. Namely, the effects of booming expansion – economic, demographic, urban, technological, material, visual –  on the embodied subject within the context of a spreading capitalist pan-humanism championed abroad by the US. Some of the key historical coordinates that this conferences sets out to engage with in relation to cultural production include: the so-call consumer-led miracle in Europe, the international context of Edward Steichen’s The Family of Man (1955), the baby boom, Hiroshima and Nagasaki, the first tests of the H-bomb, postwar developments in cybernetics and artificial intelligence, futurology and technological dystopia.

We encourage submissions for 30 minutes papers in the following areas of research: growth, reproducibility and sustainability as artistic strategies; urban growth, future habitats and exhibitions as habitats; technology, ecology and new sciences in art and exhibition making; humanism, ecology and sustainability; reproduction and feminist practices. We invite papers that address how artworks, films, images and exhibitions in the 1950s and early 60s mediated this experience within the boundaries of US-rescued Europe and explore the extent to which the local, national and global became increasingly interdependent for artists caught between the end of WWII and the early Cold War phase.

DEADLINE for submission: extended to 25 February 2014

Abstracts should be no longer than 300 words. Please include your name, email address and institutional affiliation (where possible) at the end of the document.

Send to: BoomUCL@gmail.com

Organised by Giulia Smith and Teresa Kittler
