2011-2012 Colloquium Series: Call for Papers

The Foucault Society is pleased to announce a new colloquium series, which began in March 2011 in New York City. As a forum for new research and works-in-progress, this series offers an opportunity for both junior and senior scholars to share new work with a friendly and supportive audience of colleagues.

We invite paper proposals on any aspect of Foucault studies. Papers may offer close readings of Foucault’s texts; analyze social, cultural or political phenomena in the context of Foucaultian critique; or situate Foucault’s work in terms of related thinkers or areas of critical theory. Diverse critical, historical and empirical approaches are welcome, as are critiques of Foucault and comparative readings.

Papers should be approximately 30 minutes reading time.

Graduate students, recent Ph.D.s, new faculty, and independent scholars are especially encouraged to apply. Presenters may come from any field in the humanities or social sciences.

Please send 500-word abstract and brief c.v. to the Foucault Society’s Executive Committee at foucaultsocietyorg@gmail.com. Inquiries are welcome.

Deadline for Fall 2011 presentations: May 30, 2011.
