CfP: Radical Americas symposium

Radical Americas Symposium 2015 - UCL Institute of the Americas - 14-15 September

“Washing one's hands of the conflict between the powerful and the powerless means to side with the powerful, not to be neutral"
Paulo Freire

We are delighted to announce a call for papers and panels for our third symposium to be held at the UCL Institute of the Americas on the 14-15 September 2015. The aim of the event is to bring a range of disciplinary and geographical perspectives to bear on radicalism throughout the Americas. Our definition of “radicalism” is a broad one, encompassing both political radicalism as an object of study, and radical analytical approaches to the societies and cultures of the Americas. We welcome proposals that deal with any aspect of radicalism, from the democratic and republican radicalisms of the nineteenth century; to the socialist, anarchist, communist, and populist radicalisms of the twentieth century; as well as contemporary identity politics, social movements, and twenty-first century radicalisms.
