                                   CALL FOR PAPERS
 
                    The Centre for the Study of Theory and
                    Criticism at the University of Western
                    Ontario plans a major international
                    conference on THE HISTORIES OF THEORY, to be
                    held from April 16th-19th, 1998. This is the
                    third international conference hosted by the
                    Centre. Proceedings of both previous
                    conferences ("Theory Between the Disciplines"
                    and "The Human Sciences in the Age of Theory")
                    have now appeared in book form.
 
                    We are seeking papers from a variety of
                    (inter)disciplinary perspectives, on any
                    aspect of the conference topic, including the
                    following:
 
                    --the histories and genealogies of particular
                    theoretical schools: trajectories,
                    hybridities, crossings
                    --the rhetoric of particular theoretical
                    discourses and the "history" (material or
                    psychic) underlying that rhetoric
                    --connections between contemporary theory and
                    earlier philosophy/social theory
                    --the histories of theory within a particular
                    discipline
                    --the genealogy of particular theorists'
                    careers: hybridities, crossings, missed
                    encounters
                    --the genealogies of "theory" itself; the
                    history of its constitution as an
                    (inter)discipline; versions of
                    interdisiplinarity in earlier periods; ways
                    in which histories of theory have been
                    narrativized; the possibly gendered basis of
                    these (his)tories etc.
                    --rewriting the history of theory: forgotten
                    pasts, neglected histories, and missed
                    encounters
                    --the tyranny of history; theory in the age
                    of historicism
                    --modernity and postmodernity
                    --poststructuralism after the "academic
                    postmodern"
                    --the end(s) of theory and theory at the fin
                    de siecle
