The Social Theory Forum (STF) is an annual conference organized by the University of Massachusetts, Boston in order to creatively explore, promote and publish cross-disciplinary social theory—and to develop new, integrative theoretical structures and practices.
The 2010 meeting welcomes submissions in feminist theory, queer theory, literary criticism, social linguistics, conversational analysis, philosophy of mind, etc. that critically engage and interrogate Freud or Lacan. Conference organizers ask authors to submit a one page-page abstract as an email attachment to SocialTheoryAbstracts@libraryofsocialscience.com no later than February 9, 2010.
Upon selection and notification of approval by the organizing committee, submitters must send completed presentation paper manuscripts (around 12-15 double-spaced pages in Times12 typeface) by March 22, 2010. As in previous years, papers will be peer-reviewed by anonymous referees for publication in a volume based on the conference.
PLEASE SEND YOUR ABSTRACT AS SOON AS POSSIBLE to Professor Movahedi at SocialTheoryAbstracts@libraryofsocialscience.com.
