“My soul would sing of metamorphoses./ But since, o gods, you were the source of these/ bodies becoming other bodies, breathe/ your breath into my book of changes”
—Ovid, The Metamorphoses (trans. Allen Mandelbaum)

As an interdisciplinary conference, Craft Critique Culture encompasses the intersection of critical and creative approaches. In light of this objective, this year’s conference renews this focus through the examination of changes and exchanges. We invite the submission of critical, theoretical, and original creative work from across the humanities, sciences, and legal disciplines that speak to this topic. We are seeking submissions that cover a gamut of methods and forms, from traditional scholarly papers to non-traditional formats and presentations, including film, video, music, fiction, non-fiction, and poetry, visual art and artists’ books, as well as theater and performance.
