CFP: Transformations May 20, 2008

Filed under: CFP — annejjacobson @ 5:37 pm

The School of Politics, International Studies and Philosophy at Queen’s University Belfast is seeking paper proposals for a two-day conference [28th-29th November 2008] on the subject of

Transformation and the Dynamics of (Radical) Change
Insights from Political Theory and Philosophy

Transformation is a seemingly ubiquitous concept within the field of political theory and philosophy. Whilst some idealize transformation as a source for progress and the improvement of the human condition, others frame it as a disruptive and unsettling process which can damage the social, political and natural elements of our world.

Paper  proposals should include a tentative title, an abstract (200-300 words) and details of the author’s institutional affiliation and contact information. Proposals should address any of the following issues/topics:
•       Factors and actors in transformation: Pluralism, nationalism, individualism, collectivism, recognition, complexity.
•       Forces of transformation: Globalization, economic change, social change, processes, transformation of conflict.
•       Objects and subjects of transformation: ideas; norms; values; ideology; the concept of transformation itself; state and sovereignty; government; governance; social structures and  processes; environment and nature; human beings, including the self.
•       Evaluations of transformation: theories, approaches, critiques and the possibility of a broader discourse on transformation.
All papers should make an explicit contribution to the establishment of a broader discourse on transformation and the dynamics of (radical) change.
The organizing committee welcomes papers from scholars in all fields and also encourages submission from early-stage academics, as well as from postgraduate students.
The deadline for submissions is JUNE 15th 2008.
Please send your submission to: transformations(at)qub.ac.uk
