Borderlands: An Interdisciplinary Graduate Student Conference
Abstracts: January 20, 2016
Conference: March 5, 2016
As a noun, a border implies limitations, the edge of a physical boundary, or a fence between concepts. As a verb, it is the creation of a separation. "Borders" also stretch beyond physical boundaries imposed on land and raise abstract fences between disciplines and discourses each contain. Recognizing and dismantling the boundaries that exist among disciplines and specialties initiates conversation and encourages interaction among fields.
