The theme of this year’s OCD in Society conference is “Theory and Practice”. The goal of the event is to explore how the humanities, social sciences, activism, and the arts can offer ways to conceptualise, understand, and raise awareness about obsessive-compulsive symptoms. The theme of the conference invites contributors to think about how obsessions and/or compulsions are constituted by, embedded within, and regulated through forms of practice. We interpret ‘practice’ to include practices of care for the body, regulatory practices, creative practices, and modes of performativity.

The Thatcher Network’s annual conference has provided a forum for interdisciplinary discussions about Margaret Thatcher, Thatcherism, and the legacy of the two since 2017.
We invite a broad range of papers that offer new perspectives on Thatcher and Thatcherism and welcome contributions from as wide a variety of disciplines as possible.
Papers may speak to any aspect of ‘Thatcher studies’: we prioritise variety and insight over having a narrowly defined conference theme.
