CRITICAL GOVERNANCE STUDIES CONFERENCE 

AT WARWICK UNIVERSITY, UK, DECEMBER 13/14 2010 

  

 
“Governance” has for some time been a fashionable concept across the social sciences and throughout the public, private and voluntary sectors.  Rod Rhodes identified 7 different arenas and senses in which “governance” discourse is used and promoted: governance as governing without government, the minimal state, new public management, self-organising networks, socio-cybernetic systems, good governance; corporate governance.  

Our goal is to establish a forum to challenge orthodoxies and develop a dialogue between scholars and practitioners interested in developing critical approaches to the study and practice of governance. To this end, Warwick University’s Institute of Governance and Public Management has organised a two day international, cross-disciplinary conference to debate these issues, with a view to generating a post-conference edited collection.    

Our keynote speaker is the world-renowned Professor Nancy Fraser (New York’s New School for Social Research).

Professor Nigel Thrift (Vice Chancellor, University of Warwick), will give the opening address.

Other distinguished contributors include professors Mark Bevir (Berkeley, California), Janet Newman (Open University), Helen Sullivan (Birmingham) and Hugh Willmott (Cardiff).  

We welcome individual abstract submissions from now until 19th November and invite colleagues to submit abstracts on themes that might include, among others, critical approaches to the governance of citizens, space, money, networks, risk, security, science and universities. Proposals for panels and streams along these lines are also welcome. Abstracts for both panels and individual papers should be between 200 and 500 words and including the names, positions, affiliations and contact details of all proposers and contributors.
As the conference theme is “challenging orthodoxies”, we ask colleagues to address it directly in their abstracts by describing a problematic orthodoxy, subjecting it to critical challenge and outlining new areas of inquiry and new social practices based on the critical approach. At the same time, we encourage people to problematize the key terms, governance, orthodoxy and critique.  

After the conference, we plan to publish an edited collection with selected papers, showcasing the best critical governance research from across the disciplines.

We are able to offer a small number of discounts to scholars and doctoral students who would otherwise be unable to attend.  If you wish to apply for a discounted fee, please state this at the end of your abstract and explain why you need financial support.  

Please email abstracts to esme.farrington@wbs.ac.uk and register for the conference at: http://www.wbs.ac.uk/events/2010/12/13/Critical/Governance/Conference

We look forward to meeting you at the Warwick Critical Governance Studies conference.  Warwick University is close to Shakespeare’s Stratford-on-Avon, to the charming and historic Cotswolds, and to London.

We are pleased to announce a call for papers for the Critical Governance Studies conference at Warwick on 13-14 December this year. The goal of the conference is to bring together scholars and critical practitioners challenging orthodoxies and developing critical approaches to the study and practice of governance. At a time of crisis and discontent, and with the renaissance of social critique, we believe that the conference is timely and will enhance critical governance research across the social sciences. The conference is cross-disciplinary and we encourage colleagues to submit abstracts on themes that might include, among others, critical approaches to the governance of citizens, space, money, networks, risk, security, science and The University. The conference theme is ‘challenging orthodoxies’ and we ask colleagues to address it in their abstracts by describing a problematic orthodoxy, subjecting it to critical challenge and outlining new areas of inquiry and new social practices based on the critical approach. At the same time, we invite people to interrogate the key terms, ‘governance’, ‘orthodoxy’ and ‘critique’.

Individual abstract submissions are welcome from now until 31st October. Proposals for panels and streams following these guidelines are also welcome. Conference registration opens on 1st June with an early bird rate of £250, plus accommodation, rising to £300 plus accommodation from 1st October. Details of how to register and book accommodation on campus will be available online from 1st June. Please email abstracts and other proposals to esme.farrington@wbs.ac.uk.

Please circulate this information to relevant contacts and networks and submit abstracts and other proposals to esme.farrington@wbs.ac.uk.  Esme is available on 02476 522525 if you have any other queries.  

Thanks
