CALL FOR PAPERS
*The Radical Sixties: Aesthetics, Politics and Histories of Solidarity *

28–29 June 2019, University of Brighton, UK

An international interdisciplinary conference jointly organized by the
University of Brighton’s *Centre for Applied Philosophy, Politics and
Ethics*(CAPPE); *Centre for Design History*(CDH) and *Centre for Memory,
Narrative and Histories*(CMNH).

Deadline for abstracts: 28 September 2018

“The Sixties” continue to engage scholars from many disciplines in debates
over what exactly changed; and, indeed, whether the various protest
movements were in fact radical at all in their political demands. Both
nostalgically celebrated as a revolutionary heyday and lamented as a failed
political project, the decade continues to haunt veterans and preoccupy
scholars fifty years on.

However, these long-held evaluations remain parochially centred on European
and North American experiences in a handful of cities in this tumultuous
decade. Crucially, a Third Worldist perspective, despite its centrality for
activists in the 1960s, is conspicuously marginalized in today’s
scholarship. It has been argued—and demonstrated—that decolonisation
struggles and anti-imperialist resistance spanning the three continents of
the Global South, from Cuba to Algeria and all the way to Vietnam, both
politically informed a new generation of contestation and offered a new
radical horizon of Leftist internationalism. And yet “The Sixties”
continues to be universalised on the basis of myopically “Western”
speculations about what makes radical politics possible.

This conference thus seeks to decentre the established loci of “The
Sixties”. It builds on recent efforts to expand and complicate the
spatiality and temporality of the global sixties and calls for new analyses
of this critical historical conjuncture from the standpoint of solidarity.
For today we seem to know very little about how solidarity constituted a
nodal theme for radical Leftist politics in the 1960s; its intellectual
frameworks and transnational politics, associated aesthetics and cultures
of circulation. How was solidarity conceived, imagined and radically
enacted in the border-crossings, both spatial and intellectual, of
revolutionaries in the “long” 1960s?

We invite contributions from any discipline that explore notions and
manifestations of solidarity as articulated in the interstices that, more
than 50 years ago, opened up shared spaces of political struggle and
prefigured radical horizons of possibility. In particular, we seek
explorations of solidarity as expressed in new aesthetic modes of
transnational dissent and carried through the circulatory practices of
radical cultures and associated flow of new revolutionary subjectivities.
