Posted on 24 April 2012

The 10th Annual Aberystwyth-Lancaster Graduate Colloquium (ALGC) will be held at Keele from the 14th to the 16th of June this year. The ALGC is a forum in which graduate students explore and discuss critical and post-structuralist approaches to global politics. The colloquium provides a friendly environment for students to present their ideas and receive feedback from other students and scholars in the field, as well as to engage in some lively debates about the future of critical scholarship. The ALGC is organised by students and for students with the support of academic staff.

In 2012, the 10th version of the colloquium will be hosted by The Emerging Securities Unit in SPIRE at Keele University, from the 14th to the 16th of June. Professor Mark Duffield (University of Bristol) and Professor Michael Shapiro (University of Hawaii at Manoa) will both be giving keynote addresses, with panels also on: Biopolitics: thinking the politics of life (and death) with Foucault and Agamben; Revisiting the Frankfurt School and English School; Problematising identity politics; and Temporalities: memory, anticipation, anxiety.
