EXTENDED DEADLINE (June 30, 2009)--17th Biennial Conference of the North American Sartre Society. Hosted by the University of Memphis – November 19-21, 2009.
At this year’s conference we will be celebrating the 50th anniversary of the publication of the Critique of Dialectical Reason as well as 25 years of NASS. Our keynote speaker will be Robert J.C. Young, a leading postcolonial theorist and one of the few who has recognized the centrality of Sartre to postcolonialism.
Papers in any area of Sartrean scholarship are welcome (philosophy, literature, psychology, politics, intellectual history, etc.). Reading time for a paper should be 25-30 minutes (to be followed by an optional commentary and 10 minutes of discussion). In addition to individual papers, we would be most interested in receiving suggestions for panel topics that address any aspect of Sartre’s work; its relationship to the work of other authors. Of special interest for the occasion would be papers that address Sartre’s Critique of Dialectical Reason or any aspect of Sartre’s relation to postcolonialism.
Graduate students are encouraged to submit papers. A number of graduate student stipends will be available to help defray the cost of lodging.
Please e-mail a 2 page abstract of your paper as an attachment (in .doc format) to firstname.lastname@example.org
For panel submissions, please submit an abstract for the whole panel as well as abstracts of each individual paper. These will be forwarded to the Program Committee for blind refereeing.
