1st Macau Philosophy Conference rethinking resistance “抵抗的再思考”

26 06 2011

Call for papers

December 16-18, 2011


While the idea of total revolutions might sound hopelessly anachronistic today, there is a consensus about the centrality of certain forms of political, ethical and aesthetic resistance. These forms are directed at multiple relations of increasingly intertwined domination. The conference, conceived in the context of global neoliberalism, aims to address the significance of practices of protest and public dissent ranging from traditional forms of civil disobedience to more recent practices including fun guerilla, protest art and resistance in the digital network.

Drawing on the tradition of critical theory, broadly construed, we hope to shed light on the theoretical and practical linkage between resistance, oppression and liberation in different socio-historical contexts. The goal is to get a clearer understanding of the conditions of (im)possibility enabling and preventing emancipatory resistance.


Authors are invited to submit an abstract of no more than three hundred words to rethinkingresistance@gmail.com. The deadline is 31 July 2011 and acceptance of papers will be announced by 20 August 2011.
