Call for Stream Proposals – deadline September 11th 2023
The Call for Stream Proposals is now open for the 1st annual Midlands Conference in Critical Thought (MCCT), which will be hosted and supported by the Department of Social and Political Sciences at Nottingham Trent University on April 5th and April 6th 2024.
This is the inaugural MCCT which is an offshoot of the London Conference in Critical Thought (LCCT). As with the LCCT, the MCCT is an annual interdisciplinary conference that provides a forum for emergent critical scholarship, broadly construed. The conference is 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 plenaries, and the conference is envisaged as a space for those who share intellectual approaches and interests but who may find themselves at the margins of their academic department or discipline.
There is no pre-determined theme for the MCCT. The intellectual content and thematic foci of the conference will be determined by the streams that are proposed in response to this call and accepted for inclusion. Successful stream proposals form the basis for our subsequent Call for Presentations; therefore, stream proposals should not take the form of pre-established panels. We welcome stream proposals that aim to stimulate a range of cross-disciplinary responses and which approach critical thought in an open, non-prescriptive way. Past programmes of the LCCT and examples of stream outlines can be found on the website: http://londoncritical.org.
The proposers of accepted streams will become part of the organising collective for the remainder of the annual cycle, taking principal responsibility for their own stream as well as contributing to the MCCT organising collective. For more information about the ethos and structure of the conference please visit http://londoncritical.org, and if you have any questions please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The deadline for Stream Proposals is Monday September 11th 2023. Proposals should not exceed 500 words and should be sent to: email@example.com
