Call for Papers
The John Felice Rome Center of Loyola University Chicago is hosting the sixth international conference on Critical Theory, which will be held at its campus in Rome, Italy – Via Massimi 114/A. The conference will examine the importance and the developments of the Frankfurt School by addressing both the philosophical tradition of the early stages of Critical Theory – and in particular the works of Walter Benjamin, Theodor W. Adorno, Max Horkheimer and Herbert Marcuse – as well as the application of their theories to our contemporary society.
In order to reflect the wide range of topics addressed by Critical Theory, the conference will cover different aspects of philosophical reflection on justice, politics, aesthetics, sociology, technology, literature and any other relevant field of study.
The conference will be held at the Rome Center of Loyola University Chicago on May 6-8, 2013. It will begin on Monday morning and end by Wednesday afternoon (with a welcoming reception on the evening of Sunday, May 5). During the sessions, each speaker will have 30 minutes. All presentations will be made in English.
