Call for Papers
The nineteenth annual meeting of the Foucault Circle
North Easton, MA
April 5-7, 2019
We seek submissions for papers on any aspect of Foucault’s work, as well as studies, critiques, and applications of Foucauldian thinking.
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 Don Deere (firstname.lastname@example.org) on or before December 14, 2018. Indicate “Foucault Circle submission” in the subject heading. Program decisions will be announced during the week of January 15, 2019.
In light of the recent publication of Les Aveux de la chair (The History of Sexuality IV), this year’s meeting will include a discussion session on Foucault’s complex engagement with Christianity (relevant English texts will be made available on our website). The conference will begin with a Friday afternoon panel session and an evening reception. Morning and afternoon paper sessions will be held on Saturday, followed by a business meeting and dinner. The conference will conclude with paper sessions 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.
