Call for Presentations – deadline March 13th, 2022

The Call for Presentations is now open for the 10th annual London Conference in Critical Thought (LCCT), hosted and supported by the School of Social Sciences and Professions at London Metropolitan University. This will be an IN-PERSON conference, occurring at the Holloway Road (North) campus of London Metropolitan University.

The LCCT is an annual interdisciplinary conference that provides a forum for emergent critical scholarship, broadly construed. The event is always FREE for all to attend and follows a non-hierarchical model that seeks to foster opportunities for intellectual critical exchanges where all are treated equally regardless of affiliation or seniority. There are no keynotes and the conference is envisaged as a space for those who share intellectual approaches and interests but may find themselves on the margins of their academic department or discipline. There is no pre-determined theme for each iteration of the conference, with the intellectual content and thematic foci of the conference determined by the streams that are accepted for inclusion in response to the Call for Stream Proposals (now closed).

The streams for #LCCT2023 are:

  • Affects & Collective Practices of the Undercommons
  • Critical Spatial Action for an Earth in Crisis: Shuffling the Narrations
  • Empirical Philosophies: Mediating Theory & Practice in Critical Thought
  • Epistemic Challenges to Democratic Institutions
  • Gentle Gestures
  • Horrors of Philosophy
  • Madness and Capitalism
  • Planetarity and Apocalyptic Spaces: Literature, Art and Architecture
  • Previsualisations: what’s it going to be like?
  • Radical Repetition: Repetition as Creative Subversion and Liberation
  • Reimagining Data Visualisations: Critical Questions, Expanded Practices
  • Representing the Non-normative: Othered groups in the (human) rights Imaginary
  • Rethinking Work and Career: Resisting the Neoliberal Order
  • Thinking-Feeling Desire in the Now: Post-Capitalist Desire and Creative Practices of the Body

Please read the stream descriptions in the full CfP document (link above). If you would like to participate in one of them, please send an abstract for a proposed presentation to [email protected] with the relevant stream title indicated in the subject line. Abstracts should be no more than 250 words and must be received by Monday March 13th 2023.
