The purpose of the International Social Theory Consortium and its annual conference is to organize the International Social Theory community and to provide an opportunity for interdisciplinary exchange on problems in contemporary social theory broadly conceived. The conference will be several days long, and papers are welcomed from scholars, faculty, and graduate students who work in any of the many areas of social theory. In addition, the 2004 conference will host a day long workshop on the theme of discord. Possible areas of exploration for the workshop are: discord as a disenchantment of conflict, discord as a deepening of disagreement, and discord as a promise of dissonance. We are particularly interested in discord in social thought as well as in a critical examination of the artifacts of discord. Conference organizers invite submission of 150 word abstracts for papers intended for the discord workshop. We also invite submission of abstracts for papers and proposals for panels for the general conference.
Please note the deadline for abstracts for the discord workshop is Sept 15 2003. Otherwise, please send abstracts by December 20 2003.
