Urban Humanities Convergence
March 16-18, 2016
As the world becomes more urbanized, we seek to understand how the Humanities engages with and contributes to urban communities. The Urban Humanities Convergence will interrogate notions of urban spaces, identities and movements by bringing together scholars, artists and activists working within these terrains. From anti-gentrification activism to art movements, from urban fiction to graphic novels, the conference will encompass a wide range of disciplines and encourages interdisciplinary inquiry beyond the ivory tower.
Call for papers for the one-day conference

Boundaries and intersections -- two contrasting metaphors and yet not quite a binary. On the one hand, these words spatially remind us of Venn diagrams: two bound circles with a space of intersection where they overlap. On the other hand, intersections can be places of traffic, movement over time, streams of cars or pedestrians crossing boundaries. Spatial overlap or temporal crossing--the stability of categories or their rupture. The humanities are constantly defined and redefined by the churning of boundaries and intersections.
