Call for Papers
6th International Critical Theory Conference
May 6-8, 2013
The John Felice Rome Center of Loyola University Chicago is hosting the
sixth international conference on Critical Theory, which will be held at
its campus in Rome, Italy – Via Massimi 114/A. The conference will
examine the importance and the developments of the Frankfurt School by
addressing both the philosophical tradition of the early stages of
Critical Theory – and in particular the works of Walter Benjamin,
Theodor W. Adorno, Max Horkheimer and Herbert Marcuse – as well as the
application of their theories to our contemporary society.
In order to reflect the wide range of topics addressed by Critical
Theory, the conference will cover different aspects of philosophical
reflection on justice, politics, aesthetics, sociology, technology,
literature and any other relevant field of study.
The conference will be held at the Rome Center of Loyola University
Chicago on May 6-8, 2013. It will begin on Monday morning and end by
Wednesday afternoon (with a welcoming reception on the evening of
Sunday, May 5). During the sessions, each speaker will have 30 minutes.
All presentations will be made in English.
