This conference offers graduate students from across North America the opportunity to come together to discuss social and political thought as well as the concepts of aesthetics, alienation, and apocalypse as related to catastrophe. The Social and Political Thought program at Acadia University is focused on engaging with the theoretical questions that affect our everyday lives and exploring ways to turn everyday life into a theoretical and aesthetic project.

Students presenting at the conference will have the opportunity to receive feedback on their research and presentation from a scholarly audience while also engaging in networking opportunities to build key contacts and further their own professional development. There will also be an opportunity to become published in a peer-reviewed journal led by Masters’ students in critical theory. PhD, MA students and advanced honors theses candidates are invited. The registration fee for conference presenters includes all academic sessions, meals, coffee, and a welcome package.
