London Conference in Critical Thought
Friday, 29 June 2012 at 10:00 - Saturday, 30 June 2012 at 17:00 (BST)
London, United Kingdom
In collaboration with the Birkbeck Institute for the Humanities, the London Conference in Critical Thought has been developed to create a space for an interdisciplinary exchange of ideas for scholars who work with “critical” traditions and concerns. The LCCT aims to provide an opportunity for those who frequently find themselves at the margins of their department or discipline to engage with other scholars who share theoretical approaches and interests. Interdisciplinary and inter-institutional, the conference seeks to foster emergent critical thought and provide new avenues for critically orientated scholarship and collaboration.
