McGill University

Department of Art History and Communication Studies

4th Annual Graduate Student Symposium

April 26th, 2013

"We must habituate ourselves to think that every visible is cut out of the tangible, every tactile being in some manner promised to visibility, and that there is encroachment, infringement, not only between the touched and the touching, but also between the tangible and the visible,"
- Merleau-Ponty, The Visible and the Invisible

The graduate students of McGill's Department of Art History and Communication Studies invite you to consider the implications of the tangible in a one-day interdisciplinary graduate student conference.

The California Journal of Women Writers

The California Journal of Women Writers is a new online journal featuring original reviews and criticism of women's literature from across North America, as well as interviews with authors and commentary on critiques published elsewhere. We do not focus on any one type of literature, as long as the text is written by a female author and is of interest to TCJWW editors.

Our intent is to provide a space for enthusiastic dialogue supporting a wide variety of women writers. We invite our readers to unite, discuss, and join our conversation with insightful comments. This is a space devoted to fostering and enhancing the visibility of North American female authors.

Call for Papers for Collection: Captivity / Writing / Unbound

Proposals for papers are invited for a collection entitled Captivity / Writing / Unbound. We are particularly interested in papers that explore and extend the traditional boundaries of the study of captivity writing—such writing conceived generically, geographically, historically, or in disciplinary terms—and that do so through a triangulation of the three operant terms: Captivity, Writing, Unbound.

Interface 2013: Creative and Critical Approaches in the Digital Humanities

The digital humanities explores how emerging digital forms of scholarly inquiry and new ways to assess and to organize knowledge transform the creative and critical methods humanities scholars use to approach their objects of study.
