Historical Materialism Conference “SPACES OF CAPITAL, SPACES OF RESISTANCE” Toronto, Canada May 11-13, 2012 (Proposal Deadline: January 15, 2012)
on the successes of the two previous North American Historical
Materialism Conferences at York University (2008 and 2010), we are
pleased to issue a call for papers for our third conference. In light of
the continuing instability of global capitalism and the mounting
resistances from Egypt to the Occupy Movement, our over-riding theme
will be “Spaces of Capital, Spaces of Resistance.” But we welcome all
contributions that contribute to critical knowledge on the activist and
scholarly Left and the development of historical materialism as a
living research program. We specifically welcome papers dealing with The
Spaces of Power; Critical Theory and the Politics of Liberation;
Capital and its Discontents; Modes and Movements of Resistance.
welcome individual submissions as well as panel proposals. For
individual papers, please send an abstract of no more than 250 words.
Panel organizers should submit a 100-word panel abstract along with
individual paper abstracts of no more than 250-words for each paper to
be presented as part of the panel. We will formulate the conference
itinerary based upon the broad themes generated through the submission
process. Proposals will be accepted until January 15, 2012 by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We apologize, but cannot accommodate requests to present on specific
days, so please be prepared to attend the full three days of the
