The Department of Politics at The New School for Social Research is
sponsoring a graduate student conference interrogating the concept,
history, practices and implications of radical democracy. We strive to
assess its legacy from ancient to contemporary radical democratic theory,
as well as explore the work of theorists such as Abensour, Arendt, Badiou,
Castoriadis, Laclau, Mouffe, Negri, Rancière, and Wolin. We invite you to
submit abstracts on any theme pertaining to the history, meaning,
development, application, or critique of the concept of radical democracy;
we also encourage discussions about methodology and the study of radical
democratic movements.

For individual paper proposals, please submit a one-page abstract (max. 300
words) that includes institutional affiliation, academic level and contact
information. Complete panel proposals with up to four papers are strongly
encouraged. Please submit your paper or panel abstracts by January 15, 2013
to *radicaldemocracy@newschool.edu*. You will receive a notification of our
decision by January 25, 2013. Full conference papers are due by February
25, 2013.

Topics may include but are not limited to:

– · Indigenous democratic movements
– · Contemporary radical social struggles
– · Radical democracy and the 2012 elections
– · Promises, limits and critiques of the concept of radical
democracy
