Critical Theory Feminism Conference, Bristol //

27 Marzo 2019

Call for Abstract

This conference brings together philosophers working in Critical Theory and Feminism with political theorists and professional psychoanalysts in an interdisciplinary context to develop a compelling new perspectives on gendered oppression. By combining (Frankfurt School) Critical Theory and feminist concerns and applying both to the different feminist approaches themselves such new perspectives can offer compelling normative framework(s) and/or comprehensive ways to conceptualise problems of gendered injustice as well as productive ways to understand and navigate internal conflicts between the different approaches within feminism. Such  perspectives might also inform Critical Theory methodology itself.

Some of the topics the conference will address, for example (list is not exhaustive):

  • Universalism and particularity (e.g. identity politics, intersectionality)
  • Critical Theory, “progress” and feminism.
  • Inclusion and exclusion
  • Decolonial Theory and Critical Theory

  • Mechanisms of domination
  • Notions of emancipation
