Call for Papers - 3rd Annual North American Anarchist Studies Network Conference, San Juan, Puerto Rico, 7-8 January 2012


North American Anarchist Studies Network Conference

San Juan, Puerto Rico – January 07-08, 2012

Deadline for Proposals: November 15, 2011

The North American Anarchist Studies Network is currently seeking participants for our third annual conference to be held at the Ateneo Puertorriqueño in San Juan, Puerto Rico. We invite those engaged in intellectual work within existing institutions, such as universities, but also those engaged in the production of knowledge beyond institutional walls to share their ongoing work. From the library stacks to the streets, we encourage all those interested in the study of anarchism to submit a proposal. Far more than an academic conference we wish to create spaces in which there’s a friendly dialogue regarding topics that might help us expand the knowledge of the theory of anarchism and how to construct a better and equal society.

In keeping with the open and fluid spirit of anarchism, we will not be calling for any specific topics of discussion, but rather are encouraging participants to present on a broad and diverse number of themes- from the historical to the contemporary to the utopian.

It is our sincere hope that this conference will, to the greatest extent possible, accurately represent the diversity of the North American and International anarchist politics and thought; to that end, we encourage submission(s) in English, French, Spanish, Portuguese and in any other language or on any other topic you feel relevant to this experience and this community.

Send your proposal, including a short abstract, a working title and three keywords that describe your project to the Puerto Rico NAASN crew at:  For more information on the North America Anarchist Studies Network check out our website at

We look forward to hearing from you, organizing with you and, of course, learning from you!
