Critical spaces: Disorienting the topological

The London Graduate School presents an interdisciplinary graduate conference addressing the spatial.

In particular we are interested in how thinking spatially or spatial practices reveal and open up disruptive, subversive or minoritarian fields within already existing discourses, be they philosophical, political, cultural or aesthetic. As Foucault has done in defining heterotopias, and as Edward Soja shows us through the idea of ‘thirding as othering', it aims to rupture not only the particularities of those discourses, but the very possibility of thought itself through challenging existing borders, boundaries, horizons, surfaces and planes.

We are pleased to announce guest keynote speakers Professor Claire Colebrook (Penn State University) and Professor Eyal Weizman (Goldsmiths, University of London), and the London Graduate School's Dr Eleni Ikoniadou and Professor Fred Botting.

We welcome proposals for papers and practice-based interventions, to be submitted to lgscriticalspaces@gmail.com by Friday 14 November.

Booking is essential to attend this event.
