First established in 2011, the London Conference in Critical Thought (LCCT) is an annual interdisciplinary conference that provides a forum for emergent critical scholarship, broadly construed. The event is always FREEfor all to attend and follows a non-hierarchical model that seeks to foster opportunities for intellectual critical exchanges where all are treated equally regardless of affiliation or seniority. There are no plenaries or keynotes and the conference is envisaged as a space for those who share intellectual approaches and interests but may find themselves on the margins of their academic department or discipline.
There is no pre-determined theme for each iteration of the conference. Each year the conference’s intellectual content and thematic foci are determined by the streams that are accepted for inclusion, in response to the Call for Stream Proposals. Successful stream proposals form the basis of the subsequent Call for Presentations. Stream Organisers lead in the curation of their stream, in collaboration with the rest of the LCCT Collective and other Stream Organisers.
