Authority and Knowledge: People, Policy, Politics: An Interdisciplinary Conference Conference Call for Papers

Date: Thursday 13 and Friday 14 February

Time: 9am – 5pm

Venue: the University of Melbourne

There is a fundamental relationship between authority and knowledge: the entitlement to know, to speak, and to act relies upon claims of expertise, power and experience. This conference aims to bring researchers together who are currently engaged in research concerning the nature, form and function of authority and knowledge socially, culturally, politically, and institutionally.

We welcome papers that address the multifaceted ways in which claims to authority and knowledge permeate everyday social life, political understandings and practices, and policy reform (people, policy, politics).
