Call for Abstracts: The Aesthetics of Democratic Life-Forms

Montag, 06.03.2023

Call for Abstracts for a Conference in Frankfurt am Main on September 21–23, 2023. Deadline: June 15, 2023

This call for abstracts invites contributions engaging with the topic via:

  1. theoretical concepts leading double aesthetic-political lives (representation, form, style, theatricality, realism, affect, experience, criticism, and others)
  2. analyses of object-side phenomena (literary texts, artworks, public space, fashion trends, social media, pop culture, climate movements, hustle- and scam culture, and others)
  3. insights from individual theoretical discourses (post-colonialism, phenomenology, feminism, ecocriticism, legal theories, theories of judgment, theories of the Anthropocene,  biopolitics,  and others) as well as schools of thought (Wittgenstein and Cavell, Marxism, Critical Theory, Pragmatism, Radical Democracy, and others).

Selected participants will be invited to present their research in interdisciplinary panels, each being allotted 20 minutes for speaking and 10 minutes for questions from the audience.

The deadline for the submission of abstracts (500-1000 words) is June 15, 2023. Contributions from students in advanced stages of master programs and doctoral students are expressly welcomed. A portion of travel and accommodation costs for participants can potentially be covered; the publication of conference contributions is being considered.
