New critical psychology network

Here is an interesting new initiative -

Critical Psychology International - Call for Contributions

A website is being developed to facilitate the work of Critical Psychology International. This website will provide a place to publish articles and reports of all kinds, a forum for discussions across the network, and an email list.

The CPI will be an international network of relationships and connections based on affinity (which should not be confused with uniformity, as the positive values of discrepancy, divergence and disparity are assumed), whose main aim is to promote the development of critical work within and beyond psychology. It will be multilingual and is available to all who wish to belong, no matter what their language of use. The CPI will be formed as a network of nodes (with nodes being made up of individuals, research groups, departments, collectives, teams, etc), with no hierarchy or management structure, but a collective guided by objectives proposed and developed by its members. It will aim to connect people and groups to do research or other activities, and develop and maintain exchange of knowledge, information and experience, promoting and strengthening trans-disciplinary and co-operative research.

The website will be formally launched early in the new academic year, and this is a call for contributions of all kinds. Register yourself, department, research or project group as nodes of the network, join the email list, and submit documents of all kinds such as conference papers and other grey literature, work in progress, and suggestions for the form the network should take.

Please direct all contributions, and statements of interest in becoming part of the network to Louise Madden at

A preliminary form of the website, and email list will soon become available, please email Louise Madden for updates as these develop.
