Call for Papers - Society for Socialist Studies Conference 2015

Conference venue: Ottawa, Canada
Period: June 2-5, 2015
Deadline for submitting proposals for Sessions: December 8, 2014
Deadline for submitting abstracts for papers: January 31, 2015



The theme of the 2015 CFHSS Congress is ‘Capital Ideas.’ The theme of the 2015 Society for Socialist Studies Conference is Kapital Ideas: analysis, critique, praxis.  Join us for four days of wideranging and engaged analysis and dialogue. June 2-5, at the University of Ottawa.

Kapital Ideas are theories and analyses that help point us toward a better world through critique of the unequal, violent and exploitative one we now inhabit. They take inspiration from the author of Das Kapital, though they range widely over many issues which include ecology and political economy, gender and sexuality, colonization and imperialism, communication and popular struggles, but also movements and parties, hegemony and counterhegemony, governance and globalization and, of course, class struggle and transformation.  Kapital Ideas are interventions that contribute to what Marx, in 1843, called the ‘self-clarification of the struggles and wishes of the age’.  In an era of deepening crisis and proliferating struggles, of grave threats and new possibilities, the need for these ideas, and for the praxis they can inform, could not be more acute.

Guidelines for submission

Call for proposals for Sessions

At this early point we are mainly interested in proposals for panels and roundtables, which will then be posted on our conference website. Proposals for roundtables should include a list of participants. Unlike paper sessions they are not available for individual proposals. We are open to other kinds of proposals for sessions. Abstracts (maximum of 100 words) for session proposals should be submitted by Monday, December 8, 2014.

Call for Papers

If you wish to submit a proposal for an individual paper at this point the Programme Committee will find a place for it. Sessions open for individual proposals will be posted to our website as soon as they are accepted by the Programme Committee.
