Hello everyone. We are excited to announce our call for papers for the 4th Annual Radical Democracy Conference at The New School for Social Research in New York City. This year’s conference will take place from March 14 and 15, 2014. For more details about the call for papers click here.
The Department of Politics at The New School for Social Research is sponsoring the Fourth Annual Radical Democracy Conference – a graduate student conference 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.
For individual paper proposals, please submit a short abstract (max. 400 words) that includes institutional affiliation, academic level and contact information. Complete panel proposals with up to four papers are strongly encouraged. Please submit your paper or panel abstracts by December 1, 2013 to firstname.lastname@example.org. You will receive a notification of our decision by December 15, 2013. Full conference papers are due by February 15, 2014.
