Political Theology and Modernity: The Legacy of Carl Schmitt – Lancaster 9 June 2014

Political Theology and Modernity – The Legacy of Carl Schmitt

Day Event at Lancaster University, Monday 9th June 2014

The Northern Theory Group in conjunction with the Journal for Cultural Research and the Politics, Philosophy and Religion Department of Lancaster University is organizing a one-day research seminar on the 9th June 2014, at Lancaster University, beginning at 1000am and finishing at 5.00pm.  The keynote speaker for the day is Professor William Rasch, Professor of Germanic Studies at Indiana University (author of Sovereignty and its Discontents: On the Primacy of Conflict and the Structure of the Political).  A summary of William Rasch’s contribution is appended to this message.  Michael Hölzl, of Manchester University, and translator of one of Schmitt’s central texts on political theology, will also present a paper at the event.

The event is particularly aimed at academics and research and graduate students interested in the legacy of Carl Schmitt.  Expanded versions of the prepared contributions to the day will be eligible for consideration (through blind peer review) for a special edition of the Journal under the guest editorship of William Rasch (Indiana), Arthur Bradley and Laurence Hemming (both Lancaster).

If you wish to attend please email Laurence Hemming (l.p.hemming@lancaster.ac.uk) or Arthur Bradley (a.h.bradley@lancaster.ac.uk), as soon as possible.  There is no charge for the event but we do ask that you register in advance.

 Call for Papers  We are inviting short contributions of up to fifteen minutes (maximum) from participants – initial proposals of not more than 500 words should be emailed to Laurence Hemming (l.p.hemming@lancaster.ac.uk) or Arthur Bradley (a.h.bradley@lancaster.ac.uk) by 10th May 2014 – because of the short notice we will get back to you within a day or two about acceptance.  Even if you are not aiming to make a formal presentation, we would welcome your attendance.
