Vertigo: Fake news/real theory
Call for papers
The ANU contemporary critical theory group is hosting a one-day seminar exploring law, art, politics, and society in the 21st century.
Does critical theory matter? To what extent do the works of modern or contemporary critical theorists afford insights into the crises and perplexities of the world we live in? In what ways are these analyses in cahoots or at odds, inadequate or partial, complementary or prophetic?
This event will feature short papers of no more than 15 minutes that make an intervention or articulate an argument with succinct vigour, leaving plenty of room for lively and even contentious discussion.
We particularly encourage the attendance and participation of HDR students from a wide range of disciplines, as well as from early career and established scholars working on critical theory and critical legal theory.
The program offers several bursaries of up to $500 each specifically targeted to HDR students from around the country.
Your abstract, like your presentation, should be pithy and relevant. It should make an argument about critical theory or the work of a specific theorist, drawing it into dialogue with the problems and predicaments of the world we live in.
Date: Wednesday 12 December 2018
