The inaugural Critical Governance Studies conference will be held at the University of Warwick on 13th and 14th December 2010.
The objective of the conference is to bring together scholars and activists challenging orthodoxies and developing critical approaches to the study of governance. We believe it is timely to hold an event such as this, which at a moment of crisis and discontent, has the potential to establish critical governance studies as a recognized milieu in the social sciences.
The conference will be cross-disciplinary and based on themes that might include, among others, critical approaches to the governance of citizens, space, money, networks, science and the university. We are delighted that Professor Nancy Fraser has agreed to be keynote speaker.
