Authority and Knowledge: People, Policy, Politics

An Interdisciplinary Conference

The University of Melbourne

Thursday 13th & Friday 14th February 2014

There is a fundamental relationship between authority and knowledge: the entitlement to know, to speak, and to act relies upon claims of expertise, power and experience. This conference aims to bring researchers together who are currently engaged in research concerning the nature, form and function of authority and knowledge socially, culturally, politically, and institutionally. We welcome papers that address the multifaceted ways in which claims to authority and knowledge permeate everyday social life, political understandings and practices, and policy reform (people, policy, politics).

Please follow this link to view the full call for papers, and to submit an abstract before the closing date, November 30, 2013: http://authorityandknowledge.wordpress.com
