Association for Psychosocial Studies Biennial Conference

Bournemouth University, 5th-7th April 2018

[Description: Macintosh HD:Users:candida:Desktop:loveart.jpg]

‘Psychosocial Reflections on a Half Century of Cultural Revolution’

Fifty years after the hippie counterculture of 1967 (‘the summer of love’) and the political turbulence of 1968 (‘May 68’), this conference will stage a psychosocial examination of the ways in which today’s world is shaped by the forces symbolised by those two moments. It will explore the continuing influence of the deep social, cultural and political changes in the West, which crystallised in the events of these two years. The cultural forces and the political movements of that time aimed to change the world, and did so, though not in the ways that many of their participants expected. Their complex, multivalent legacy of ‘liberation’ is still developing and profoundly shapes the globalising world today, in the contests between what is called neoliberalism, resurgent fundamentalisms, environmentalism, individualism, nationalisms, and the proliferation of identity politics.

A counter-cultural and identity-based ethos now dominates much of consumer culture, and is reflected in the recent development of some populist and protest politics. A libertarian critique of politics, once at the far margins, now informs popular attitudes towards many aspects of democratic governance; revolutionary critiques have become mainstream clichés. Hedonic themes suffuse everyday life, while self-reflection and emotional literacy have also become prominent values, linked to more positive orientations towards human diversity and the international community.

We invite psychosocial analyses of the development and legacy today of the ‘revolutions’ of the sixties, either through explorations of contemporary issues in politics, culture and artistic expression, or through historical studies. All proposals for papers, panels and workshops must indicate how they address psychosocial dimensions of their topic.

Send your abstract of 250-300 words to: [log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]>
Deadline: 30 September 2017.
Confirmation of acceptance of abstract: 1st November.

Topics could include:

•    What happened to hate in the Summer of Love?
•    Lennon vs Lenin: did 1967 and 1968 announce two divergent trends in contemporary culture - and what has happened since to the psychosocial forces they expressed?

•    New inequalities in post-industrial societies
•    The resurgence of religion

•    Therapeutic culture and its critics
•    Where are they now? Biographical narratives of the revolutionaries
