As the title of the conference indicates, we are soliciting contributions that range from those that focus on the problems with, and limitations of Nietzsche’s thought, to those that develop new ways to demonstrate the value of Nietzsche for the critical analysis of a variety of contemporary social problems and social movements. We also seek contributions that explore the often ambiguous place of Nietzsche’s thought as it relates to critical social theory and practice. Some of the important topical areas we seek to address include, but are not limited to:
Each panelist will have approximately 20 minutes to present their papers and 10 minutes for discussion.
Selected authors will be invited to contribute book chapters for the edited volume, Nietzsche & Critical Social Theory: Affirmation, Animosity, and Ambiguity to be published by Brill. The book will be edited by Michael James Roberts, PhD, Associate Professor of Sociology, San Diego State University and Christine A. Payne, PhD Candidate, University of California San Diego.
If you are interested in presenting a paper or organizing a panel (of up to 3 presenters) please submit a 1-2 page abstract
by October 15, 2016 -- extended to November 1st -- (including name, institutional affiliation, and mailing address). Abstracts should be submitted below.
Decisions regarding the program will be made by November 2016. For more information, please contact Dr. Michael James Roberts at firstname.lastname@example.org
