Castoriadis symposium in Melbourne

hello cc-ers,

i'm organizing a cc symposium in melbourne for later this year. at this stage it's for one day only, but should there be any interested northerners, i would try and get more funding to extend it over 2 or 3 days (but would need early expressions of interest from you to do that). i've pasted in the CFP below. hope the Akureyri gathering went well!


Call for papers:


Date: Friday, 28th November 2008
Venue: Monash University (Caulfield)

Ten years after the death of Cornelius Castoriadis, the interdisciplinary significance of his thought remains largely unmined. His philosophical-political elucidations sought not only to interrogate the human sciences (from art to epistemology) but extended to the natural sciences as well (from auto-poiesis to mathematics). Melbourne has long been central for Castoriadis studies, and, in continuing that tradition, interested scholars are invited to submit abstracts in any area of Castoriadis’ thought for in-depth presentation and discussion. Proposals that bring Castoriadis into dialogue with other thinkers and traditions are especially welcome.

Please email abstracts to Suzi Adams by 10th June, 2008
(Earlier expressions of interest are of course very welcome).
