20th and 21st CENTURY FRENCH AND FRANCOPHONE STUDIES INTERNATIONAL COLLOQUIUM

 

20th and 21st Century French and Francophone Studies International Colloquium

New York City: March 6-8 2014

Co-organized and hosted by

NYU, CUNY Graduate Center and Columbia University

 

Call for Papers/ Appel à communications

Money / L’Argent

 

This conference, to be held in New York City on March 6, 7 and 8 2014, will focus on the role that money, economics, dépense, financial crises and equitable or unjust economic distribution have played in 20th and 21st century French and Francophone literatures, visual cultures, theatre, history, theory, translation studies and gender and ethnic studies. Since the financial crises of 2008, there has been an ever widening debate about the role that financial gain plays in the production of culture and the functioning of institutions of higher education throughout the world. At the same time, the crises have energized communities that put into question the culture of capital and the ties between capitalism and culture, all of which has created particularly dynamic, ideological, moral and cultural power struggles. This conference will serve as an open discussion on the way money has worked in stories, aesthetic forms, translations, methodologies, curricula and our own institutions from 1900 to the present.

 

Possible topics include:

Economics and the Cultural Field

National or Global Culture?

Financial Crises and the Avant-garde

Gender and Economic Disparities

Fetishism and the Taboo of Money

Writers and their Institutions

Cinematic Production and Globalization

Copyright and Royalties in the Digital Age

Cultural and Economic Centers and Peripheries

Culture and the Welfare State

Anti-capitalism

“Occupy Wall Street” and “le Comité invisible”

The Great Depression and Art

Money/Colonialism/Postcolonialism

Money/Migration/Art

Poetry and/versus Money

Cognitive Capitalism and the Study of Literature and Film

Esthetic Practices and the Working Class

 

Proposals for individual presentations and for complete panels can be submitted in French or English by August 31, 2013. Please send them to ffsmoney2014@gmail.com. The proposal should be from 200-250 words for each presentation and should include the affiliation, the name and the email address of each participant.

Money / L’Argent

 

Ce colloque, qui aura lieu à New York le 6, 7 et 8 mars 2014, met l’accent sur les rôles que jouent l’argent, l’économie, la dépense, les crises financières et la répartition économique—juste ou injuste—dans la littérature, les cultures visuelles, le théâtre, l’histoire, la théorie, la traduction et l’étude de la sexualité et de l’ethnicité au sein des études françaises et francophones des 20e et 21e siècles. Les crises financières de 2008 ont lancé un débat de plus en plus étendu sur l’importance du gain financier dans la production culturelle et dans les systèmes universitaires dans le monde. Ces crises remettent en cause les rapports entre le capitalisme et la culture. Ainsi s’ouvrent des luttes de pouvoirs idéologique, culturelle et morale. Ce colloque se veut un lieu de discussion au sujet du rôle de l’argent dans la littérature, les formes esthétiques, les traductions, les méthodologies et même les programmes d’étude de nos propres universités du début du 20e siècle jusqu’à nos jours.

 

Pistes de réflexion (liste non exhaustive):

L’économie et les champs culturels

Culture nationale ou mondiale?

Les crises financières et les avant-gardes

Genre, sexualité et inégalités économiques

Fétichisme et tabou de l’argent

Les écrivains et les institutions

Le cinéma et la mondialisation

Les droits d’auteur à l’ère numérique

Centres et périphéries culturelles et économiques

La production culturelle et l’État-providence

L’Anticapitalisme

« Occupy Wall Street » et le « Comité invisible »

La crise économique des années 30 et l’art

Argent/Colonialisme/Post-colonialisme

Argent/Migration/Art

La poésie et/versus l’argent

Le capitalisme cognitif et l’étude de la littérature et du cinéma

Les pratiques esthétiques de la classe ouvrière

SUBJECTS AND PRACTICES OF RESISTANCE

CALL FOR PAPERS

For two inter-linked, consecutive workshops under the theme of Subjects and Practices of Resistance to be held 9-11 September 2013 at University of Sussex.

The first workshop (9-10 Sept) is on Discipline(s), Dissent and Dispossession and the second on Counter-Conduct in Global Politics(10-11 Sept).  The workshop convenors encourage attendance at both workshops.  However, paper proposals should specify the intended workshop and which days participants would be able to attend.

The workshops are generously sponsored and supported by the BISA Poststructuralist Politics Working Group (PPWG) and the Centre for Advanced International Theory (CAIT) at the University of Sussex

 

Workshop 1: Discipline(s), Dissent and Dispossession

9-10 September 2013

Contemporary struggles against dispossession – from the 2011 Occupy movement to ongoing land rights conflicts in the Ecuadorian rainforest – not only remind us of existing forces of domination and exploitation, but also challenge the ready-made concepts and frameworks through which such struggles are often interpreted.   Building on a previous project – “Disciplining Dissent”* – this workshop aims to open up discussion on the intersections between the politics of resistance and the politics of knowledge. How might we conceptualise dissent or resistance in ways that are sensitive to the social and epistemic relations within which anti-systemic struggles are embedded? How might we frame the complementarity and tensions between political dissent and intellectual critique? How might available concepts and frameworks occlude the complex interplay between resistance and repression, discipline and dissent, obscuring what is at stake politically in existing practices of struggle?

We welcome contributions that consider these themes from diverse theoretical perspectives and academic disciplines, including international relations, international political economy, sociology, philosophy, geography and anthropology.

Questions that might be addressed include (but are not limited to): how is dissent rendered intelligible in ways that serve to contain, nullify or depoliticize struggles; the politics of knowledge in political dissent; the place of normative political critique in the absence of universal categories or emancipatory blueprints; the ways in which dissenting communities are building their own theories of dissent or are theorising out of their own dissenting practices; the forms of subjectivisation incited, subverted or arrested through practices of dissent and/or their relation to the types of dissenting subjects assumed by intellectuals and experts; the ways in which academic disciplines interpret, appropriate and discipline both dissent and critique; the nature and purpose of academic critique at a moment of austerity and economic “crisis”.

It is hoped that the workshop will serve as a basis for a journal special issue, as well as for further collobarations around these themes.

Abstracts of approx. 300 words should be sent to L.Coleman@sussex.ac.uk and cait@sussex.ac.uk by 31 May 2013 (please indicate whether or not you plan to attend both workshops).  

Convenors:

Lara Montesinos Coleman, University of Sussex

Doerthe Rosenow, OxfordBrookesUniversity

Karen Tucker, University of Bristol

*published as Lara Montesinos Coleman and Karen Tucker (eds.), Situating Global Resistance: Between Discipline and Dissent (Abingdon: Routledge, 2012) and as a special issue of Globalizations 8:3 (2011).

 

Workshop 2: Counter-Conduct in Global Politics: Theories and Practices

10-11 September 2013

Resistance, and its study, is on the rise. Protesting, agitating, dissenting, and occupying inter alia have received increased attention and theorisation in the past tumultuous decade since 11 September 2001. However, such academic and public attention has tended to focus on the visible and politically discernible practices of dissent against sovereignty, economic exploitation, dispossession and other forms of oppression. Little systematic attention has been paid to potentially less visible practices of resistance or those who do not participate in an expressly political register but that attempt to resist ‘power that conducts’ (Foucault 2007). To this end, the workshop has four main aims. First, to theoretically develop, refine and critically interrogate the concept and theorisation of ‘counter-conduct(s)’, a term that, until recently, has received scant attention within the social sciences. We encourage the further critique, development and modification of Foucault’s initial attempts to understand subjects’ ‘possible inventions’ as counter-conduct (1982, 2007). Second, to provide a space in which empirical, multi-disciplinary investigations of counter-conduct in a variety of thematic areas and spaces of global politics can be presented. Third, to facilitate reflection on the variable and contingent forms of counter-conduct, examining its close relationship with conducting power and revealing the processes of invigilation of resistance and adjustment of conducting strategies. Finally, to reflect on the methodological implications and issues, which affect the study of the variegated practices of counter-conduct.

We welcome contributions that consider these themes not only from a Foucaultian perspective but also that bring diverse theoretical perspectives  — and views from a variety of academic disciplines, including politics, international relations, international political economy, sociology, political theory and philosophy, geography and anthropology – to bear on the study of counter-conduct.

Format: consisting of longer paper presentations, followed by substantial constructive feedback from discussants and audience, the format of the Counter-Conduct in Global Politics workshop aims to facilitate intensive and extensive engagement among participants with a view to producing article length contributions to a significantly placed journal special issue. Given the lack of systematic focus on practices and subjects of counter-conduct, it is hoped that such a special issue will engender further debate and consideration of the study of counter-conduct in global politics and potentially act as a reference for postgraduate and doctoral research as well. Abstracts of approx. 250 words should be sent to L.Odysseos@sussex.ac.uk and cait@sussex.ac.uk by 31 May 2013 (please indicate whether or not you plan to attend both workshops).

ROUGE FORUM DISPATCH – 16th DECEMBER 2012

Dear Friends

The Dispatch is updated here http://www.richgibson.com/blog/

The Dispatch goes on hiatus until the new year.

Please remember the Rouge Forum Conference 2013.

Winning the Class Struggle Against Corporate Education Reform

Call for Proposals: http://rougeforumconference.wordpress.com/rouge-forum-2013/call-for-proposals-rf-2013/
May 16-19, 2012
Wayne State University
Detroit, Michigan

Rouge Forum 2013 Call for Proposals

The core issue of our time is the clash of the real promise for perpetual war and booming inequality met by the potential of connecting reason to power with organized mass class conscious resistance in schools, on the job, in communities, and in the military … and what you do counts!

The Rouge Forum brings together academic presentations and panel discussions, performances, community building, and cultural events. This conference will center on such questions as:

* Overall, what do we need to know and what do we need to do to win against corporate education reform in our classrooms?

* In what ways are our classrooms, schools, universities, unions, etc. occupied by capitalism, the military, racism, inequality?

* And what do these occupations demand from us pedagogically? What are the obstacles that must be overcome to achieve democratic education?

* What can we learn from Wisconsin 2011, the Occupy Movement, and the Chicago Teacher’s Strike to make us smarter and stronger in our struggle against corporate education reform?

* How do we educate to liberate ourselves from the impact of empire? How do we push back against the imperializing of our classrooms and communities?

* How do we occupy our classrooms, schools universities, and unions and communities in an effort to create education that is in the public interests?

Calling on artists … Pop up radical art gallery would be for artists to submit 2-3 D pieces that they can bring with them to the conference to display as part of an opening or Friday / Saturday night reception activity.

Good luck to our side,
Rich Gibson

RADICAL INTERPRETATIONS OF THE PRESENT CRISIS

November 14th, 2012

8-10:30PM

WollmanHall
Eugene Lang Building, 6th floor
65 W 11th St
New York, NY10011

WITH: LOREN GOLDNER | DAVID HARVEY | ANDREW KLIMAN | PAUL MATTICK

The Present Crisis

The present moment is arguably one of unprecedented confusion on the Left.  The emergence of many new theoretical perspectives on Marxism, anarchism, and the left generally seem rather than signs of a newfound vitality, the intellectual reflux of its final disintegration in history.  As for the politics that still bothers to describe itself as leftist today, it seems no great merit that it is largely disconnected from the academic left’s disputations over everything from imperialism to ecology. Perhaps nowhere are these symptoms more pronounced than around the subject of the economy.

As Marxist economics has witnessed of late a flurry of recent works, many quite involved in their depth and complexity, recent activism around austerity, joblessness, and non-transparency while quite creative in some respects seems hesitant to oppose with anything but nostalgia for the past the status quo mantra, “There is no Alternative.”  At a time when the United States has entered the most prolonged slump since the Great Depression, the European project founders on the shoals of debt and nationalism.  If the once triumphant neoliberal project of free markets for free people seems utterly exhausted, the “strange non-death of neo-liberalism,” as a recent book title has it, seems poised to carry on indefinitely.  The need for a Marxist politics adequate to the crisis is as great as such a politics is lacking.

And 2011 now seems to be fading into the past.  In Greece today as elsewhere in Europe existing Left parties remain largely passive in the face of the crisis, eschewing radical solutions (if they even imagine such solutions to exist).  In the United States, Occupy has vanished from the parks and streets, leaving only bitter grumbling where there once seemed to be creativity and open-ended potential. In Britain, the 2011 London Riots, rather than political protest, was trumpeted as the shafted generation’s response to the crisis, overshadowing the police brutality that actually occasioned it.  Finally, in the Arab world where, we are told the 2011 revolution is still afoot, it seems inconceivable that the revolution, even as it bears within it the hopes of millions, could alter the economic fate of any but a handful.

While joblessness haunts billions worldwide, politicization of the issue seems chiefly the prerogative of the right.  Meanwhile, the poor worldwide face relentless price rises in fuel and essential foodstuffs. The prospects for world revolution seem remote at best, even as bankers and fund managers seem to lament democracy’s failure in confronting the crisis. In this sense, it seems plausible to argue that there is no crisis at all, but simply the latest stage in an ongoing social regression. What does it mean to say that we face a crisis, after all, when there is no real prospect that anything particularly is likely to change, at least not for the better?

In this opaque historical moment, Platypus wants to raise some basic questions:

* Do we live in a crisis of capitalism today and, if so, of what sort — political? Economic? Social?

* Why do seemingly sophisticated leftist understandings of the world appear unable to assist in the task of changing it?

* Conversely, can the world be thought intelligible without our capacity to self-consciously transform it through practice?

* Can Marxism survive as an economics or social theory without politics?

* Is there capitalism after socialism?

It’s Crisis Time!

UP THE ANTI: RECLAIM THE FUTURE

Conference

1st December 2012

Queen Mary College, University of London

Mile End

London

 

Since the financial crisis broke we have seen a rising tide of protest, revolutions and resistance.

One of the driving forces of these movements has been a desire to change the future: to reject the idea that we have no future outside of the logic of never ending austerity, declining living standards and the loss of public services to private profiteers.

Up the Anti is a one day conference to think about and discuss  how we lay claim to the future that we want and deserve. It will host an eclectic mix of sessions, ranging from in-depth seminars and debates to participatory, facilitated discussions and workshops. There are many questions we need to ask, including:

Is there an alternative to capitalism? What might it look like?

How do we win popular support for new radical projects?

What can we learn from the social struggles and new movements in Europe?

And how do we overcome divisions within left and radical movements?

What next after the Occupy protests?

 

We called the event ‘Up the Anti’ because we all agree that we need to build a bigger movement against social oppression and capitalism.  But we are not just against things; we also want to reclaim the future from those in power who seem intent on dragging us towards austerity, growing social inequality and environmental destruction.

The conference will be held in London at Queen Mary College, University of London, not far from Mile End and Stepney Green underground stations.

But the day is not just all workshops and seminars, we also have time for a gig at Queen Mary Student Union with comedy, music and DJs. Highlights include the up and coming radical comedian Chris Coltrane and the critically acclaimed blues guitarist Sean Taylor.

UP THE ANTI is a genuine movement event put on by a plurality of groups, websites, publishing houses, and networks. It is sponsored by New Left Project, Ceasefire, Occupied Times, Anticapitalist Initiative, Platypus and Globalise Resistance.

Call for Proposals: Labor Studies Journal Special Session – Labor Confronting Austerity

UALE invites proposals on topics across the entire span of the challenges facing working people. Proposals may draw from all disciplines and take many forms, including strategic or academic reports; qualitative or quantitative analyses; teaching demonstrations; labor history research, curriculum for adults or K-12; union membership training tools; case studies; workshops; general curriculum design; strategy sessions and performances, music, art, including public art, and theater. We are interested in what workers are saying and doing as they assert such fundamental rights as the right to
bargain collectively, enjoy union representation, obtain education, and remain safe at work. We are also interested in how modern labor education helps working people assert these rights despite economic struggle, systematic inequality and challenging political climates.

Wisconsin Judge Strikes Down Sections of Walker’s Act 10 as Unconstitutional

A Wisconsin judge has struck down as unconstitutional sections of Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker’s controversial collective bargaining law, Act 10, at least as applied to municipal and school district employees, who are the majority of public workers in the state. Act 10 prompted months of protests after it was introduced in 2011, and inspired a hard-fought recall effort that Walker survived in June of this year.

Activist Communique: This is not an Occupy eulogy

by Krystalline Kraus, rabble,ca

This is not a one year Occupy anniversary piece.

This is not a reflective obituary of a short-lived movement as if I were writing about a young life tragically cut short.

This is not a eulogy. 

Nor is this some cliché French statement: “Occupy is dead! Long live Occupy!”

It’s complicated…

Labor Is Under Attack All Over the World

by David Macaray, Common Dreams

There are plenty of notable labor events occurring at the moment. And by “notable,” of course, we mean hideous and horribly depressing. Clearly, management people all over the world believe the stars are in perfect alignment and that they now have a tremendous advantage when it comes to negotiating with their workforce. Naturally, they’re looking to exploit that advantage.

Arlene Mantle 1939-2012

She lit her candle in the wind. It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of singer-songwriter and social activist Arlene Mantle (Sage), on September 10, 2012.

The trademark headband, overalls, buttons, acoustic guitar, Joplin voice and razor wit and insight will be instantly recognizable to anyone fighting for justice in the ‘80’s and 90’s in Ontario, in Canada and around the world.

A woman, a feminist, poor, lesbian, a single mother, Arlene forged her own path. She was not the same, she was a painted bird. She chose to use her magnificent talents to speak up for the causes of workers, women, immigrants and refugees, the injured, the ill, the oppressed everywhere. She sang for peace and justice and against class and race discrimination. She would stride to her stage and speak to us and for us. She would raise our spirits when we struggled. She would help us see with her insight. She would weave our words into a mighty statement and a powerful song. She changed our lives with her songs and her courage to sing them. She stood for overcoming personal adversity and standing up to greed. She leaves to us a vast collection of songs, many written in collaboration with grass roots groups. Songs of resistance, struggle and fight-back.

Our thoughts and love go to her sons, daughters, and grandchildren, who journeyed with her through all the ups and downs, and who shared her with us.

Arlene was a life-force. She will be deeply missed. Please share the news of her passing with everyone who has fought with her for change. Planning for a memorial concert is underway; details will follow.

Sing with us now. You know the tune. “One woman pushing won’t make the mountain move, two women pushing won’t make the mountain move, all women pushing will make the mountain move. Let’s move mountains together.”

2011-2012: YEARS OF REVOLUTION AND RADICAL PROTEST

Saturday, September 22, 2012

2:00 PM

 

2011-12: YEARS OF REVOLUTION AND RADICAL PROTEST

Speakers: Barbara Epstein and Kevin Anderson

 

The Arab revolutions of 2011-12 have ushered in an era of upheaval and social protest around the world, as seen especially in the Occupy movement. Kevin Anderson will discuss in brief the achievements and the contradictions of the Arab revolutions in Tunisia, Egypt, Libya, and Syria, including their emergence as a new type of revolution, the dangers of authoritarianism (both nationalist and Islamist), and possibilities for the future.  Barbara Epstein will give a brief survey of the formation, rise, and decline of Occupy Oakland, address the ways in which it took the same path, and faced the same problems, as OWS and other Occupy movements, and the ways in which its development was unique; and she will open up a discussion of where we go from here.

Kevin Anderson teaches in the Departments of Sociology, Political Science, and Feminist Studies at UC Santa Barbara and is the author of Marx at the Marginsand the co-author of Foucault and the Iranian Revolution.

Barbara Epstein teaches in the History of Consciousness Department at UC Santa Cruz, and writes about social movements. Her books include The Minsk Ghetto, 1941-1943:  Jewish Resistance and Soviet Internationalism and Political Protest and Cultural Revolution: Nonviolent Direct Action in the 1970s and 1980s.

Werner Bonefeld

STUDIES IN SOCIAL AND POLITICAL THOUGHT ANNUAL CONFERENCE – POWER AND RESISTANCE

June 15-16, 2012
University of Sussex, Brighton

Keynote Speakers:
Werner Bonefeld (York)
Alberto Toscano (Goldsmiths)

While governments around the world have initiated austerity measures on a grand scale and have even been ousted in favour of technocratic administrations, pockets of sustained resistance continue to manifest themselves. Whether it is the populist Occupy movement, ultra-left theorists of Communisation, anti-cuts protesters, or even the rioters who took to the streets of London and beyond, the struggle against the apparent status quo continues. When taken in the light of the Arab Spring, questions must be asked in regards to the relationship between resistance and revolution. These movements managed to turn a tide of resistance into a force for revolution. Is this a paradigm-shift in the way this relationship must be thought?

Alongside these movements and despite the optimism generated by them, the power of the governments to crush, de-legitimise, and ignore opposition appears to remain. Some critics blame a lack of coherent message and agenda; others say that the forces of opposition are not dealing with the reality of the situation. This critique, however, does not have the last word. These forms of resistance, in their many guises, challenge the state’s belief that it has a monopoly on reality. They challenge the very legitimacy of the state to disseminate the status quo and, therefore, represent a radical alternative even if they do not, or cannot, dictate what the alternative may be. What role do the concepts of power and resistance play in our analysis of the current situation? Do they require a reassessment or does the contemporary conjuncture simply represent a reassertion of the same old forces in a different guise?

Power is one of the core concepts of social and political thought. Yet there is plenty of disagreement about what is, how it functions and how it should be contested. Our present conjuncture is witnessing many different manifestations of power and resistance. However, there is a lack of serious theoretical engagement with the current situation. We are seeking papers that engage theoretically with the current situation, and which emphasise the central roles of the concepts of power and resistance. Possible theoretical frameworks include, but are not limited to, theories of biopolitics, instrumental reason, critical theory, post-colonialism, discourse and democratic theory, structuralism and post-structuralism, recognition, soft-power, hegemony, world-systems, sovereignty, legality, and legitimacy.

Socialism and Hope

THINKING ABOUT WHAT REPLACES CAPITALISM – DISCUSSION IN NYC

Thursday, June 14th, 2012 at 7:30 PM
Thinking About What Replaces Capitalism: The State of Play in the ‘Designing Socialism’ Discussion

With David Laibman
At the Brecht Forum
451 West Street (between Bank & Bethune Streets): www.brechtforum.org

“Central planning is a failure.” “Market socialism is an oxymoron.” Is anything left?

Believe it or not, the possibilities are just starting to emerge. The insufficient socialisms of the past (and present) have left us rich legacies. New information technologies, grass roots activism, incentive design theories and general assemblies – all have a place. We need to polish our vision of a possible future society and make it precise, even when we don’t yet have the forces to begin to implement it. It will help us to get there. We need to ask: ‘OCCUPY – with what?’

David Laibman is Editor of “Science & Society,” the world’s longest continuously published journal of Marxist scholarship.  He is Professor of Economics (Emeritus) at Brooklyn College and the Graduate School, City University of New York.  His recent books include: “Deep History: A Study in Social Evolution and Human Potential” (2007); and Political Economy After Economics: Scientific Method and Radical Imagination” (2012).

DYSTOPIA AND GLOBAL REBELLION

Dystopia and Global Rebellion

Global Studies Association of North America Annual Conference

4-6 May 2012

Universityof Victoria,Vancouver Island, Canada

(Co-sponsored by of the VP of Research, Dean of Social Sciences, and Centre for Global Studies)

Social crisis shakes Europe and the U.S., anti-immigration movements grow, nuclear meltdown radiates Japan, while spreading drought and floods are billboards for global warming.  It seems the future has arrived and it doesn’t look good.

Yet democratic movements spread like wildfire throughout the Middle East, youth movements come alive in the U.K., France, Chile and Spain, rebellion takes to the streets in Greece, and Occupy Wall Street wakes up the U.S. Dystopia and global rebellion indeed. This year’s conference theme focuses our attention on the problems and alternatives we face in our struggle for a just and better world.

Keynote Speakers and Panels:

“Economic Crisis and the Working Class: re-thinking class struggle” — Gary Teeple

“Anti-Globalization or Alter-Globalization? Mapping the Political Ideology of the Global Justice Movement” — Manfred B. Steger.

“Crisis of the Human Condition: Global Rebellion Hits the Wall” — Paul James.

“Building the Counter-Hegemonic Bloc to Neo-Liberal Dystopia” — William Carroll & Jerry Harris.

“Environmental Dystopia and the Green Alternative” — Martha McMahon, Kara Shaw & Waziyatawin.

“The Occupy Movement” — Carl Davidson, Lauren Langman, Jackie Smith, Jay Smith.

ANARCHIST STUDIES NETWORK CONFERENCE

CALL FOR PAPERS
Anarchist Studies Network Conference 2.0 – ‘Making Connections’
Loughborough University, UK
3rd-5th September, 2012

***Deadline for abstract submissions extended to May 1st, 2012***

Registration Packages Now Confirmed (scroll down for more)
Full contact details for panel organisers available at: www.anarchist-studies-network.org.uk
If you have a paper that doesn’t necessarily fit in the advertised panel streams, it will still be considered. See below for details.

We live in interesting times. The Arab Spring, Occupy X and anti-austerity protests are only the latest and most visible examples in a long tradition of grassroots social movements in which ordinary people create democratic alternatives to hierarchy and inequality. Here and everywhere, people are getting together and making connections between their own everyday experiences and wider patterns of relationships and power, official and unofficial. They (or we) are making connections with each other, personal and political. New patterns evolve as people experiment with different ways of organising, of relating, of connecting, of thinking. Scholars, artists and activists observe, theorise and participate in various ways, helping to make connections, both in social movements and in the movements of everyday life. Feminists, in particular, have foregrounded intersectional approaches to power, privilege and oppression. Race, class and gender; sexuality, ecology and (dis)ability; age, species and faith — each of these and more interconnect in numerous ways, both subtle and overt.

The Anarchist Studies Network is hosting a conference to acknowledge, celebrate and deepen these diverse efforts to understand and transform our world, our lives. We want this conference itself to be a space for making connections, both intellectual and personal. It will include a blend of more or less traditional panels, participatory discussions and experiential workshops, extended breaks and social events. This first call is an invitation to propose thematic streams, workshops or panel topics by those who are willing to take a role in organising them. Further calls will invite papers, participation, performance. We’re particularly keen to make connections across borders of identities, movements, disciplines and practices. We invite contributions from students, academics and unaffiliated researchers, activists and artists, health practitioners and care workers, trade unionists, community organisers and those without labels. Above all, we would like to nurture a convivial atmosphere in which to make connections with others, explore areas of both overlap and difference, create or simply meet, to learn and to share.

Our intention is for this to be a scholarly conference with a difference. Scholar means both student and teacher. By bringing together a diverse group of participants, who share in common a desire to learn and a commitment to acknowledging and creating alternatives to rigid hierarchies and exploitative relationships, we hope that each of us will have something to offer others and much to learn. The process of organising the conference is decentralised, with the conference initiators welcoming proposals from a diverse range of session organisers covering a wide variety of engaged and engaging topics. We also invite session organisers to consider playful, participatory and/or experimental panel and workshop formats. This might range from a traditional three paper panel followed by a discussion using alternative facilitation techniques (e.g., open space technology, fishbowl, or sitting in a circle with a facilitator) to more interactive workshop-style discussion or experiential sessions. Our intention is not to be transgressive for the sake of it, but to encourage a variety of methods in order to facilitate making connections.
