CALL FOR PAPERS
The twenty-first annual meeting of the Foucault Circle
University of Missouri – Kansas City
Kansas City, MO
April 21-23, 2023
We seek submissions for papers on any aspect of Foucault’s work, as well as studies, critiques, and applications of Foucauldian thinking. In light of recent legal and political moves against abortion and reproductive rights, we especially encourage scholarship engaging with the work and tools of Michel Foucault to provide a critical, genealogical understanding of this moment.
Paper submissions require an abstract of no more than 750 words. All submissions should be formatted as a “.doc” or “.docx” attachment, prepared for anonymous review, and sent via email to the attention of program committee chair Sam Binkley (firstname.lastname@example.org) on or before December 9, 2022. Indicate “Foucault Circle submission” in the subject heading. Program decisions will be announced during the week of January 13, 2023.
We expect that the conference will begin Friday afternoon and will conclude around lunch time on Sunday morning. Presenters will have approximately 40 minutes for paper presentation and discussion combined; papers should be a maximum of 3500 words (20-25 minutes reading time).
Logistical information about lodging, transportation, and other arrangements will be available after the program has been announced.
