The History Department of the New Bulgarian University organizes an International Conference on

Intellectuals And/In Politics
New Bulgarian University, Sofia, April 29-30, 2011

The problem of intellectual attitudes and relation to politics and power has existed ever since a specific group of people has engaged in the creation and propagation of knowledge, and intellectual labor has become differentiated and professionalized.

A number of related questions remain for critical inquiry: Do intellectuals need to be active in politics, and is it necessary for them to associate with different forms of power? Do they have to become members, or leaders of political movements, and parties, and place themselves in service of political regimes or is it better that they retain their independence, and take impartial or critical stance instead? Are intellectuals to be seen as carriers of certain messianic powers, as spiritual leaders of their societies, or are they mere political opportunists who sometimes appear on the political scene, and are often subsequently assumed by power or marginalized as political oppositions? What has happened in historical instances when intellectuals have assumed position of power? Did they have and enact their specific interests as a social group, or did these interests coincide with the interests of the other groups and society as a whole? And, lastly, how does the rest of society see intellectuals, and why are anti-intellectual sentiments so persistent?

The conference sets itself the goal to discuss these and related aspects of intellectuals' link to politics in past and present cases as these of Bulgaria, Eastern and Western Europe, and on a global scale.

The conference will be carried out in the following panels:

* Intellectuals, politics, and political parties;

* Intellectuals, political elites, and the exercise of power

* Intellectuals between messianism and conformism;

* Intellectuals and anti-intellectual attitudes.

There will also be a special graduate and doctoral students’ panel.

Please, submit your abstracts with a summary of the paper and a short bio until February 20, 2011. Contact person: Dr. Roumen Genov,
