LAST CALL FOR PAPERS - PROPOSALS DUE DECEMBER 1, 1998

The Graduate Programme in Social & Political Thought announces its annual
graduate student conference:

Strategies of Critique 13:  Superstition
March 26, 27, 1 999  /  York University

Between knowledge and belief, at the crossroads of science and myth, is born
an epistemological hybrid -- 1/2 method, 1/2 ritual -- that mediates
historical and political practices.  What critical exorcisms, whose
manifestations, and which metamorphoses haunt the site of SUPERSTITION?

13 session ideas:
Political Prognostications
Necromancy of the Nation
Epistemological Auguries
Lust for the Apocalypse
The Gender of the Beast
Rites of the Subject
Parapraxes
Semiotic Spells
Conjuring Evidence
Sacred Technologies
Spectres and Speculations
Possessions and the Dispossessed
The Rational Kernel in the Mystical Shell

Graduate students are invited to submit a 200-word proposal for a paper,
performance, or video presentation by Tuesday, December 1st, 1998.  All
proposals will be blind reviewed.  Presentations should be approximately 20
minutes.  Send all proposals and inquiries via email, fax or mail to:
