The Space of Possibilities: Resistance, Critique, and Imagination

Welcome to the website of the 15th Annual Graduate Student Philosophy Conference, to be held March 21st and 22nd, 2014 on the campus of Michigan State University in East Lansing, Michigan.

The aim of this year's conference is to examine the role of imaginative alternatives in critical social and political philosophy. Social theorists have to struggle with the limitations of the present imaginary in theorizing better possible worlds and new means of resistance while critiquing interlocking systems of oppression.

Participants and attendees will enjoy many opportunities to exchange ideas with graduate students and faculty members from MSU and other universities. We are also pleased to announce that this years Keynote speaker is Dr. David Schweickart of Loyola University Chicago, whose work on "Economic Democracy" has provided a successor system theory to capitalism that previous scholars in Critical Theory have not theorized in detail. This year will be the first in which a roundtable will call on several MSU faculty members. For more information about Dr. Schweickart and round table participants, please visit our speakers page.
