Conference description:

The ISTC is a grouping of teaching and research programs in social theory across the world that is dedicated to maintaining diverse traditions of social theorizing in the social sciences and humanities as key sources of rigorous and critical research and interpretation. In addition, the ISTC is committed to examining and promoting new developments in social theory as an inter-disciplinary and post-disciplinary practice directed at transcending the established divisions within social science and the humanities, respectively, and especially the boundaries between both fields of inquiry. The Consortium's primary activity is the organization and hosting of annual conferences, usually (but neither exclusively nor necessarily) alternating between Europe and North America. Recent conferences were held in Chicago, Illinois (2018), Innsbruck, Austria (2017), Ames, Iowa (2016), Cambridge, UK (2015), Knoxville, Tennessee (2014), Copenhagen, Denmark (2013), St. Augustine, Florida (2012), and Cork, Ireland (2011).
