Final Call for Papers:
In the wake of the 2008 financial crisis many declared neoliberalism dead. Others have characterised it as a zombie, ideologically dead but nevertheless stumbling on. Five years on and the neoliberal revolution from above continues to roll on, relentlessly transforming all aspects of society and the lives of those subjected to it. Today neoliberalism looks as inexorable as ever; not only surviving the crisis but capitalising upon it. From education to housing, from popular culture to social welfare and from food production to the work place, in the last three decades neoliberalism has been working across the globe to transform every aspect of social life. This conference explores the ways in which neoliberalism impacts upon and is transforming the quotidian and therein the very ways in which we conceive of ourselves and others; the past, the present and the very horizons of the future.

Taking inspiration from recent work by Wendy Brown, Phillip Mirowski, Imogen Tyler and other scholars working in this area, this international, interdisciplinary conference brings together scholars working in a range of different fields and from a variety of perspectives to reflect on the impact neoliberalism has had, and continues to have, on the everyday lives of those subjected to it. How and in what ways is neoliberalism transforming the everyday practices and forms of understanding that shape our social reality? What kind of subjects does it seek to interpellate and by what means? How is neoliberalism represented, and not represented, in the media, in popular culture and the arts? How does this impact on the ways in which “we” understand ourselves and the world in which we live? How can neoliberalism be resisted or even overthrown? What might a post-neoliberal future look like?

Abstracts of 300 words should be sent to Nicola Clewer: The final deadline for abstracts is 20th June 2014.
