Radical Foucault – An International Conference
September 8 & 9, 2011. 9.30am – 6.30pm
University of East London
The Centre for Cultural Studies Research at the University of East London is pleased to announce that registration is now open for Radical Foucault, a two day conference which will re-assess Foucault’s contribution to radical thought and the application of his ideas to contemporary politics. What does it mean to draw on Foucault as a resource for radical politics, and how are we to understand the politics which implicitly informs his work?
Stuart Elden, Professor in the Department of Geography, Durham University.
Mark Kelly, Lecturer in Philosophy, Middlesex University.
David Macey, Special Professor in Translation, University of Nottingham
Anne Schwan, Lecturer in English Literature, Edinburgh Napier University
Stephen Shapiro, Professor in the Department of English and Comparative Literary Studies, Warwick University.
Couze Venn, Emeritus Professor of Cultural Theory at the Theory, Culture & Society Centre, Nottingham Trent University and Managing Editor and Review Editor of Theory, Culture & Society.
Two Days: £120
One Day: £70
To register, please go to the Centre for Cultural Studies site
Please note that registration includes lunches and other refreshments during the conference, but not accommodation or evening meals. We will plan a dinner for the Thursday evening nearer the time and will contact all delegates to invite them to take part, but payment for this will be organised separately.
The conference will take place in the East Building, University of East London, Docklands Campus, London, E16 2RD.
If you need information about accommodation near the campus, then the easiest place to find it is here (the Excel conference centreis very near to the campus), but we would also recommend searching online for accommodation in more central parts of town if that is your preference (the journey from central London to the campus normally takes 40-60 minutes).
Full programme details will be published shortly.
