POSTDISCIPLINARY STUDIES IN DISCOURSE

Call for Book Proposals – new book series from Palgrave Macmillan

Postdisciplinary Studies in Discourse

Series Editors: Johannes Angermuller and Judith Baxter

Discourse Studies is a field studying the social production of meaning at the intersection of language & society. Its principal focus is upon the central role of meaning production for the construction of hierarchies and hegemonies, identities and subjectivities. The field comprises a range of approaches, strands and schools such as poststructuralist, critical, conversational, interactional, pragmatic and semiotic approaches to discourse to name but a few.

In the past, Discourse Studies have sometimes testified to a divide between theoretical and epistemological orientations on the one hand and more methodological, analytical and empirical orientations on the other. At the same time, an increasing exchange can be observed between various strands and approaches across the entire spectrum of the social sciences and humanities. The series invites contributions from different disciplines across the social sciences and encourages contributors to reflect upon the development of theoretical and methodological strands from both their own disciplinary perspective and from positions beyond their immediate discipline.

The “Postdisciplinary Studies in Discourse” series invites authors to address the theory/practice divide by integrating theory, data analysis and critique within a single research work. The series is open to new developments in Discourse Studies, including postmodern, constructivist, emergent and poststructuralist approaches to discourse theory and analysis, which may cross traditional disciplinary boundaries.

In summary, we invite you to send in your book proposal if your work responds to some of the following broad criteria:

  • Making an innovative, theoretical or epistemological contribution to the field of Discourse Studies
  • Offering an open and reflexive dialogue among different strands within the interdisciplinary space of language & society
  • Showing disciplinary self-reflexivity and making connections between different fields
  • Linking theoretical, critical and empirical challenges in Discourse Studies
  • Developing narratives between theory-development, empirical analysis and critique
  • Reflecting on how your research is or can be applied in non-academic contexts.

If you have any queries or are interested in submitting a proposal, please contact the Commissioning Editor Rebecca Brennan on rebecca.brennan@palgrave.com, or contact the series editors directly.

EPISTEMIC ACCESS, POWERFUL KNOWLEDGE AND THE ROLE OF HIGHER EDUCATION POLICY

SRHE Events

Date – 5th February 2014, 4-6.30pm

Venue – London Metropolitan University, 166-220 Holloway Road, London, N7 8DB

Society for Research into Higher Education

Higher Education Policy Network

What do we mean by ‘epistemic access’? How important is access to ‘powerful knowledge’ in the context of policies to widen participation, enhance graduate employment and increase social mobility?

This seminar will explore these issues.

SPEAKERS:

Professor Sue Clegg, Leeds Metropolitan University: ‘Employability, social mobility, and epistemic access’

In a context in which the linkage between graduate employment and social mobility has been challenged and employability curricula are deemed necessary to enhance students’ skills,  Prof. Clegg will explore the relationship between national and institutional policies, curriculum, and powerful knowledge in considering the implications for social and epistemic access.

Professor Michael Young, Institute of Education:  ‘From access to epistemic access and why it matters’

Noting the pressures in South Africa to ‘open access’ to the historically excluded majority, Prof. Young considers what might be meant by access, and considers ‘access to what?’. He argues for the need to extend the distinction between ‘formal’ and ‘epistemic’ access to also include ‘epistemological’ access to reflect on wider debates about knowledge and the curriculum.

Tea and coffee will be available at 4.00pm and the event will start at 4.15. After each paper there will be time for questions and discussion, followed by an opportunity to discuss issues raised in both papers over a glass of wine or juice.

For further details about the Higher Education Policy Network, please contact the network convenor, Professor Carole Leathwood, Institute for Policy Studies in Education, LondonMetropolitanUniversity, c.leathwood@londonmet.ac.uk

Note: Unless otherwise stated SRHE events are free to members, there is a charge of £45 for non-members

Wittgenstein

BRITISH WITTGENSTEIN SOCIETY (BWS) LUDWIG WITTGENSTEIN LECTURE SERIES (LWLS)

The Ninth BWS Lecture will be delivered by Professor Paul Standish (Institute of Education, London)

Title: On Being Resolute (see abstract below)

At the University of Hertfordshire, De Havilland Campus, Room R110

Friday 23 November 2012 at 5 pm (a wine reception will follow)

Paul Standish is Professor of Philosophy of Education. He is concerned in his work particularly with questions in ethics and education. Author of the excellent Beyond the Self: Wittgenstein, Heidegger, and the limits of language (Ashgate 1992), Professor Standish is interested in the relation between Analytical and Continental philosophy and the productive tensions of that relation. He is co-editor of the Blackwell Guide to the Philosophy of Education (2002) and of Stanley Cavell and the Education of Grownups (Fordham UP, 2011).

Abstract: On Being Resolute

A striking feature of Wittgenstein studies over the past decade or so has been debate over therapeutic readings of the texts, especially insofar as these extend backwards to include the Tractatus. “Resolute reading” has become the term of choice for at least some advocates of this view. Opponents of claims of this kind typically take issue not only over questions concerning the continuity of Wittgenstein’s thought but over the nature and possibilities of philosophy itself. Exchanges between the two camps – insofar as they can reasonably be identified in this way – have been lively, engaging, and sometimes insightful, but not always enlightening. To those on the outside, such debates can readily appear overly introspective, and this can muffle the sense of the wider importance of his philosophy. The discussion of Wittgenstein starts from issues that are critical to that importance, but in some respects these are obscured by aspects of the ensuing debate.

My discussion examines the implications of the adoption of the term “resolute” in this literature in the light of the provenance of therapeutic readings. It also turns beyond this towards a consideration of the significance of the virtue the term names for the reception of Wittgenstein more widely. This involves a return to questions regarding language and what it is to follow a rule.

The event is free, but registration is required. Please email bws@herts.ac.uk

Revolt

REPETITION AND REVOLT

The Theory Reading Group at Cornell University invites submissions for its seventh annual interdisciplinary spring conference:

Repetition and Revolt

Featuring keynote speaker Rebecca Comay (University of Toronto)

Cornell University
Ithaca, New York
April 14-16, 2011

Wavering between the occurrence of the novel and the recurrence of the routine, the concept of revolution often divides along a line suggested by its etymology.  Thus, even as Copernicus upset the world system of his time, he did so by describing an orbit, a stable circle.  Put simply, this legacy reminds us that every proposed overturning might yield nothing more than a mere return, a tendency that threatens to undermine radical upheavals in domains ranging from the political to the aesthetic to the scientific.  As Robert Frost suggests, it may well be in the nature of “total revolution” to put “the same class up on top.”

This critical ambiguity can emerge whenever we attempt to account for the possibility of change or difference.  Does this division reveal something essential about revolution, or does it indicate a fault in the ways in which we think about revolution?  In what ways has contemporary thought attempted to reckon with or reconcile the competing meanings of this term?  How do philosophical and theoretical discourses account for change and difference, not only in the realms of politics, literature, art, and science, but also within philosophy and theory themselves?  What forms of critique, resistance, or action can we find in contemporary thought, and what do these forms disclose about the potential or limits of the concept of revolution?

Suggested topics:

* Paradigm shifts and epistemic breaks

* Theories of literary innovation

* Copernican revolution or Ptolemaic counterrevolution

* Theories of the event

* Aesthetics and politics

* The figure of the genius

* Repetition and difference

* Revolution and globalization

* The finite and the infinite

* Secularization, the post-secular, the new atheism

* The future of critique

* Collapse, catastrophe, and crisis

* Evolution and Darwinism

* Eternal return

* Utopia and dystopia

* Revolutionary violence and messianism

* Law and exception

* Theories of transgression

* Ruptures critical and diacritical

* Revolutions in media/social mediation

* Turns: political, linguistic, ethical, (anti)social, comic

Please limit the length of abstracts to no more than 250 words.

The deadline for submission of 250-word abstracts for 20-minute presentations is February 15, 2011.

Please include your name, e-mail address, and phone number.  Abstracts should be e-mailed to repetitionrevolt@gmail.com

Notices of acceptance will be sent no later than February 25, 2011.

Dr Linus

14th INTERNATIONAL GRADUATE CONFERENCE IN PHILOSOPHY

University of Essex
28 May 2011
‘PHILOSOPHY IN CRISIS’

Call for Papers

In a world that is encapsulated by talk of socio-economic crises, all institutions and practices are sensitive to the demands of instrumental reasoning.  As a result, philosophy is increasingly compelled to measure its worth against external criteria—the utility of its products. This situation provides the impetus for the consideration of philosophy’s role in society; but also occasions the revaluation of philosophy’s tasks as such. A closer discussion of crisis aims to shed light on the role and purpose of philosophy.

Topics include, but are not limited to:

§  Does the study of philosophy need to be justified?

§  What are the implications of crisis in the history of philosophy?

§  Possible effects of a productivity model in the academy.

§  Should philosophy primarily function as a guide for society or provide Critique?

§  What epistemological effects has crisis produced?

§  Pragmatism and crisis: is crisis the main vehicle of change and progression?

§  Should philosophy care about the demands of bureaucracy, or tailor research to the market?

§  What is the future of philosophy, and will philosophy be recognizable?

§  Is philosophy a tool for diagnosis and solution of crisis, or, does philosophy initiate crisis?

§  Evolution of crisis through the history of philosophy.

§  Does philosophy have to re-think its motivations, and more broadly, its view of itself?

§  What is philosophy?

We are happy to consider abstracts from postgraduates, but are also willing to accept submissions from junior research fellows and lecturers.

Keynote Speakers:
Peter Hallward (Kingston)
Fabian Freyenhagen (Essex)

Final papers should be suitable for a 20-minute presentation (2000-2500 words in length), which will be followed by a discussion. The Department of Philosophy will be able to offer invited speakers limited financial assistance toward the cost of travel. For enquiries, please e-mail someone at some email address to be determined, or see the website: http://www.essex.ac.uk/philosophy/gradconference

Abstracts of 500 words in length should be sent by 28 January 2011 to pygradc@essex.ac.uk or in duplicate by post to:
Graduate Conference 2010
Department of Philosophy
University of Essex
Colchester, CO4 3SQ
United Kingdom

EUROPEAN PHILOSOPHY AFTER THE EPISTEMOLOGICAL BREAK

Philosophical Journal Nowa Krytyka, Socially Involved Journal Recykling Idei and Althusser Studies Journal Décalages and Szczecin University are inviting for the conference:

European Philosophy After the Epistemological Break

Date: 16 – 20. IX . 2010

Place: Pobierowo, ul. Grunwaldzka 66

Poland

The leading theme of the conference will be the conditions and possibilities of Louis Althusser’s philosophy, with the emphasis made on the effects which it is able to produce in the current politico-philosophical conjuncture. To examine the consequences of “philosophical intervention in politics” and “political intervention in the world of philosophy” we will try to map the key concepts of Althusser’s theoretical apparatus. Thus, during the conference, next to the tangle of misunderstandings concerning the notion of anti-humanist critique of subject and ideology, one will find possibility to discuss also the reception of Althusser’s late works concerning the “materialism of encounter”, or the epistemological concepts of theoretical practice and epistemological break. The other goal of the conference is to establish constant, international collaboration between critically oriented philosophical circles.

Historical Materialism 6

Historical Materialism 6

HISTORICAL MATERIALISM SIXTH ANNUAL CONFERENCE – REGISTRATION

 

Sixth Historical Materialism Annual Conference
Another World is Necessary: Crisis, Struggle and Political Alternatives
27–29 November 2008
School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS) and Birkbeck College, London, WC1
In association with Socialist Register and the Isaac and Tamara Deutscher Memorial Prize Committee

REGISTRATION NOW OPEN!
http://mercury.soas.ac.uk/hm/conference2009.htm

The annual Historical Materialism conference is organised by the editorial board of Historical Materialism in association with the Deutscher Memorial Prize committee and the Socialist Register. The conference has become an important event on the Left, providing an annual forum to discuss recent developments on the agenda of historical-materialist research and has attracted an increasingly high attendance over the past four years. The Editorial Board of Historical Materialism welcomes attendance and active engagement in discussion with panellists from new as well as prior participants with an interest in critical-Marxist thought.

One of the principal objectives of the conference has been to build bridges among the various Marxist communities, including the breaking down some of the linguistic and intellectual barriers which continue to hamper the circulation and expansion of critical-Marxist thought. The sixth annual Historical Materialism Conference, under the banner of ‘Crisis, Struggle and Political Alternatives’, promises to continue and take forward this objective.

The conference is organised around three plenary sessions (the Deutscher lecture, the launch of the Socialist Register 2010, and Historical Materialism’s plenary) and a host of workshops dedicated to specific themes.

THE FULL TIMETABLE WILL BE AVAILABLE SOON

For more details, please contact: historicalmaterialism@soas.ac.uk

Attendance is free, but participants must register in advance online (if this is not possible, please contact historicalmaterialism@soas.ac.uk). However, the conference is largely self-funded and we will depend on voluntary donations by attendants and participants to support the organisation and running of the event. The suggested advanced online donation is £40 for waged and £15 for unwaged: http://mercury.soas.ac.uk/hm/conference2009.htm, , and the suggested donation on the door is £50 for waged and £20 for unwaged.
