12th Annual, International, Interdisciplinary Conference: second call
EMPIRE, CAPITAL, AND TRANSNATIONAL RESISTANCE: PHILOSOPHICAL AND INTERDISCIPLINARY APPROACHES
Wednesday 13th – Friday 15th September 2017
University of Brighton, UK
KEYNOTE SPEAKER: JOHN CHALCRAFT (LSE)
The past decade has witnessed widespread resistance to neoliberalism across the world. Unlike the anti-colonial revolts of the 1950s and 1960s, this resistance has tended either to fizzle out or to be appropriated by states. This conference considers recent forms of resistance to corporate, neoliberal and state power in the context of the post-colonnial world. It looks towards the emergence of transnational forms of resistance linking different parts of the globe, exploring their limits and their potential.
The conference fee is £210. This includes refreshments, lunch on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday and a buffet dinner on the Thursday evening. There are a limited number of places available for graduate students and for people who have no institutional affiliation at the reduced price of £105. Please indicate if you wish to be considered for one of these places when sending your abstract.
Please note: the conference fee does not include accommodation and, unfortunately, we are unable to offer travel grants or other forms of financial assistance. A limited amount of reasonably priced student halls of residence accommodation is available on a first come first served basis.
