Call for Papers: 18th Conference of the International Society for Theoretical Psychology

Call for Papers: 18th Conference of the International Society for Theoretical Psychology

19–23 August 2019, Copenhagen, DPU, Denmark.
Measured lives: Theoretical psychology in an era of acceleration

This venue encourages scholars to engage in cutting-edge theoretical debates and exchange ideas on some of the main challenges and opportunities in contemporary psychology and society. With this theme on measured lives and acceleration, we wish to stimulate debate and reflection regarding values and forms of governance emerging from the ethos of acceleration and efficiency. Not only may this ethos play a role in inducing human suffering and in structuring that suffering as ‘new pathologies’ – it also seems obvious that manualisation and standardisation practices conflict with the complexity of human becoming, community and subjectivity in everyday life. We invite submissions relevant to the conference theme, but also welcome proposals on other topics in the field of theoretical psychology.
