AAC: séminaire “Actualités et théorie politique”, GT Théorie politique de l’ABSP, Bruxelles, deadline:28 août 2016

HiSoPo vous informe que le GT Théorie politique de l’Association belge de science politique (ABSP) lance un appel à communication pour la seconde journée de son séminaire « Actualités et théorie politique ». Cette journée aura lieu à Bruxelles le 28 septembre 2016.

Les interventions sélectionnées viseront à mettre en évidence l’éclairage que la théorie politique (ou une discipline connexe) peut apporter sur un enjeu actuel du débat social et politique belge ou européen. L’objectif du séminaire est triple. Il s’agit 1. De montrer comment les concepts produits par la théorie politique (ou une discipline connexe) peuvent enrichir la compréhension de l’actualité politique, 2. de promouvoir une perspective critique sur cette actualité, et 3. d’exporter ces idées en dehors de la sphère académique afin de diffuser autant que possible ces apports.

À titre d’exemples (non restrictifs), pourraient faire l’objet d’une intervention les questions suivantes: le tax shift et les réformes fiscales, les conséquences à long terme du Brexit, l’équilibre entre la protection des droits fondamentaux et la sécurité publique, causes et usages de la violence (non-)étatique, les enjeux migratoires et l’accueil des réfugiés, le recours au tirage au sort dans les procédures démocratiques, l’émergence de nouveaux partis politiques, causes et enjeux des inégalités (de tous types), la définition du populisme, etc.

Au terme du séminaire, les contributions, ou une sélection d’entre elles, seront publiées sous la forme d’un ouvrage collectif ou d’un numéro de revue visant à rendre publiques les contributions des intervenants et à en diffuser les idées.

La deadline pour proposer une intervention lors de la journée du 28 septembre est le 28 août. Les propositions de communications feront maximum 500 mots et sont à envoyer à l’adresse  eric.fabri@ulb.ac.be Les intervenants seront prévenus pour le 1er septembre de l’acceptation ou du refus de leur proposition.

SPECIAL ISSUE: DIALOGUES IN CRITICAL THEORY

The aim of the special issue DIALOGUES IN CRITICAL THEORY lies in exploring, with conceptual rigor, some of the debates that have had an impact on the consolidation and development of the Critical Theory of society or on the intellectual trajectory of one or more author in this tradition. The idea is to show that the making of social theory and philosophy is not a solitary activity, but involve, in most cases, a dynamic process of critical interaction not only with other thinkers, but with other theoretical traditions as well.

This is certainly true of all branches of the philosophical practice. Although not holding exclusivity in this respect, Critical Theory can be said to have always offered a highly/exceptionally fertile ground for the flourishing of theoretical debate: since the publishing in 1937 of Max Horkheimer’s seminal essay, Critical Theory has sought to establish itself as opposed to what was called “traditional theory,” which gave rise to numerous controversies with authors affiliated to different philosophical traditions. The relationship between “traditional” and Critical Theory, however, has not only taken the shape of an opposition, but involves likewise the (critical) appropriation of the most productive aspects of theoretical strands that do not fall under a stricter definition of the critical field. In addition to that, it should also be pointed out that the critical framework itself consists of a deeply diverse theoretical corpus. In this regard, it is not rare that among critical theorists disagreements and differences assume the form of more or less heated debates. For these reasons, it can be said that conceptual exchanges and controversies are not only part of the developmental dynamics of Critical Theory: they lie at its very basis.

The thematic scope of the special issue DIALOGUES IN CRITICAL THEORY is therefore fairly wide, provided one does not lose sight of the dialogical aspect of the selected topic. The very definition of “dialogue” or “debate” should not be very restrictive: possible objects of analysis are theoretical exchanges involving one or more thinkers linked to the critical field, which may have been recorded in books, letters, lectures and conferences, joint volumes, media interventions, intellectual biographies, memoirs, interviews, etc. The theoretical dialogues addressed in the submitted paper may have assumed the form of a dialogue in the literal sense of the term, but they can also have unfolded indirectly, in a veiled, involuntary, or even unilateral and imaginary form – one might think here of the famous metaphor by Albert Salomon according to which Max Weber wrote a great part of his work debating with Marx’s ghost.

Priority will be given to articles that do not merely present or reconstruct an already relatively well known debate, but provide substantial contributions to understanding conceptual aspects of an author’s theoretical corpus or of a thematic area privileged by Critical Theory.

Some possible approaches to the issue are:

1) the relationship between Theodor Adorno and Max Horkheimer,

2) the exchanges between Walter Benjamin and Bertolt Brecht, Siegfried Kracauer, Gershom Scholem or Adorno, chronicled for example in the correspondence between the authors;

3) the debate between Horkheimer and representatives of the Vienna Circle (such as Otto Neurath) or the controversy between Adorno and Karl Popper;

4) the disagreements between Georg Lukacs and Ernst Bloch, between Franz Neumann and Friedrich Pollock, between Herbert Marcuse and Erich Fromm or Jürgen Habermas;

5) Habermas’ discussions with Richard Rorty, Hans-Georg Gadamer or John Rawls, or controversy between Axel Honneth and Peter Sloterdijk;

6) debates on feminism and other issues between Seyla Benhabib, Judith Butler, Iris Young and Nancy Fraser;

7) “intergenerational” critiques, such as Habermas’ objections to the first generation of critical theory, Honneth’s objections to Habermas, as well as those of the most recent generation (which include Rahel Jaeggi, Nancy Fraser and Robin Celikates, among others) to both Honneth and Habermas.
