CALL FOR PAPERS
The seventeenth annual meeting of the Foucault Circle
Los Angeles, California
March 23-25, 2017
(hosted by Loyola Marymount University)
We invite individual papers on any aspect of Foucault’s work. Studies, critiques, and applications of Foucauldian thinking are all welcome. We will aim for a diversity of topics and perspectives.
Abstracts should be prepared for anonymous review, and are to be submitted to the program committee chair, Nicole Ridgway, by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) on/before Friday, Nov. 18, 2016. Please indicate “Foucault Circle submission” in the subject heading, and include the abstract as a “.docx” attachment.
Individual paper submissions require an abstract of no more than 750 words.
Program decisions will be announced in December.
Each speaker will have approximately 35 minutes for paper presentation and discussion combined—papers should be a maximum of 3000 words (15-20 minutes reading time). In addition to paper sessions, the conference will also feature a screening and discussion of Sur les toits, a documentary film on the 1970s prison revolts in France. This session will be open to all participants.
Logistical information about lodging, transportation, and other arrangements will be available after the program has been announced.
