The Department of Politics at The New School for Social Research sponsors the annual Radical Democracy Conference. This conference brings together scholars, thinkers and activists interested in interrogating the concept, history, practices and implications of radical democracy. We strive to assess its legacy from ancient to contemporary radical democratic theory, as well as explore the work of theorists such as Abensour, Arendt, Badiou, Castoriadis, Laclau, Mouffe, Negri, Rancière, and Wolin. We invite you to submit abstracts on any theme pertaining to the history, meaning, development, application, or critique of the concept of radical democracy; we also encourage discussions about methodology and the study of radical democratic movements.

  1. Hello,

    I am interested in attending your Radical Democracy Conference in 2016. Is a date for this conference announced? Or perhaps it isn't going to happen this year?

    Please advise,

      Hi Tyler,

      It should be happening again this spring, but I do not believe a date has been set yet. As soon as it is set, we will post the CPF and details here, so please check back again.

        Did the 2016 Radical Democracy Conference happen already? Is there a date for the next Conference?
        Interested in attending,
