While anarchism has a rich intellectual history, historians of ideas have tended to overlook this political tradition. The purpose of this conference stream is to address this lacuna, and provide a forum for the discussion of the ideas, debates, and thinkers that have animated anarchism’s past, and provided an intellectual foundation for contemporary developments in anarchist theory. Papers that discuss the work of specific anarchist thinkers, key themes and controversies in anarchist intellectual history, and offer contextual analysis of anarchism’s development as a political tradition are welcome. Particularly welcome are papers that deal with the contributions of lesser-known thinkers to the historical development of anarchism, papers that reflect on the absence of engagement with anarchism in the history of political thought and intellectual history, and explorations of the relevance of anarchist theory to methodologies in the history of ideas.
Please send abstracts for proposed papers of no longer than 250 words to Matthew Adams (firstname.lastname@example.org) by 7th March 2014. Papers should last 20-minutes.
