Welcome to www.walterbenjamin2012.blogspot.com - a blog accompanying the unfolding of 'The Philosophy of Walter Benjamin', a one-day conference that will be held at Goldsmiths College, University of London on December 14th 2012. The conference will be hosted by InC - the Goldsmiths research group in continental philosophy. At the moment the event is still in the early stages of planning, but all pertinent details will be announced shortly.
A call for papers (see below) has been circulated and we are currently receiving/surveying submissions and devising a programme for what will hopefully be a memorable conference. The deadline for submitting abstracts is September 30th 2012. We encourage submissions from graduate students and established academics alike. We ask that potential speakers provide a 200 word abstract for a 30-minute paper, followed by a 10-15 minute discussion.
We hope to hear from many of you or otherwise to welcome you as guests to this free and public event. For all inquiries, please contact Sebastian Truskolaski on: firstname.lastname@example.org
