On the occasion of the fiftieth anniversary of the publication of Herbert Marcuse’s One-Dimensional Man (1964), and in parallel to a similar conference being held at Brandeis University later the same week for the same reason (“The Many Dimensions of Herbert Marcuse”), the Columbia University Libraries are hosting a one-day conference on 29 September that will be dedicated to reflecting on the legacy of One-Dimensional Man and Marcuse’s critical theory generally. This call for papers is made toward the end of having an open and participatory meeting, in contrast to the framework of the Brandeis conference, which will feature only a select few panels on ODM, besides plenary speeches given by Douglas Kellner and Martin Jay. All are encouraged to consider making a proposal to contribute to the important discussion that will be taking place at Columbia in September.
Please note that the deadline for abstracts will be in about 2 weeks’ time, on 30 June.
