Call For Papers on Austerity


Welcome are contributions that theoretically engage the referential and
figural use of austerity.  What is austerity?  What are the social,
political, economic and intellectual dimensions of austerity? Who is the
paradigmatic subject of austerity? Is its meaning transhistorical and
transcultural? Or is it imbued in ideology and thus irremediably
discursive and historically contingent? Whose austerity is acknowledged
and whose is ignored? Is austerity an ontological concern? Does austerity
have an aesthetics?  Can an inquiry into austerity ever be disentangled
from neoliberalism?  How have austerity measures affected contemporary
academic culture?

Deadline:  15 August 2013
