The London Conference in Critical Thought host their inaugural conference on 29-30 June of this year, supported by the Birkbeck Institute for the Humanities. Engaging with the "critical" tradition, the LCCT is especially seeking out those who fall within the fringes and margins of their academic disciplines in the humanities and social sciences to share their work within a collaborative, interdisciplinary setting.
The conference is divided into sixteen streams (and one catchall, "general" stream), which focus on, inter alia, law and culture, objects and time, Deleuze, animality, cosmopolitics, critiquing critical theory and the ethics of radical politics. Further stream descriptions can be found on their website.
"The LCCT aims to provide an opportunity for those who frequently find themselves at the margins of their department or discipline to engage with other scholars who share theoretical approaches and interests. Interdisciplinary and inter-institutional, the conference hopes to foster emergent critical thought and provide new avenues for critically orientated scholarship and collaboration."Held at Birkbeck College (University of London), the conference is free to all participants. Their call for papers and panels ends on 19 February, so those interested should send in their proposals very soon.
