Wounded Galaxies 1968:
Beneath the Paving Stones, the Beach

Proposal deadline: July 1, 2017
Festival and Symposium
February 8-10, 2018
Indiana University Bloomington

Indiana University, in conjunction with The Burroughs Century, plans an academic symposium welcoming scholars, archivists, filmmakers, musicians, and others interested in exploring the intellectual and aesthetic legacy of 1968, during its 50th anniversary year.

Interested participants are invited to submit paper proposals on any aspect of the international history and cultural legacy of 1968.  Papers need not be limited to any particular critical, theoretical, historical, or political subject or method. As the symposium title suggests, we are using the Situationists as a point of departure and particularly welcome presentations that consider the revolutionary potential of the Everyday—in both historical and contemporary situations. But we are happy to consider any proposals that address the historical legacy of 1968, and welcome submissions that attempt to trace the legacy of 68 in contemporary art and culture.

Proposals should be limited to 300 words in length and consist of a brief description of the paper’s theme or focus, plus a one-page vita. Proposals may be submitted for individual papers or for sessions featuring two or three panelists. Proposals for panels should be submitted as a group by the organizer, along with a short explanation of the unifying theme. In addition, each panel proposal should consist of individual paper descriptions (limited to 300 words in length), names of panelists and their vitae.

Please email your proposals to Joan Hawkins <jchawkin -at- indiana.edu>, by July 1, 2017. The Symposium Program Committee will evaluate all submissions and notify all candidates of the results by Aug 1, 2017. For more information, please visit <http://www.woundedgalaxiesfest.com/?p=311>. We look forward to your proposals, and to celebrating/reevaluating the legacy of international political and aesthetic upheaval.
