We want your fiction, poetry, criticism, personal essay, translation*, drawings, photographs—you name it—that pushes against complacent taxonomies and finds itself forging new paths.

Form, Function, Intent: Materiality and the Codification of Knowledge
29 March 2017
This one-day event seeks to explore how the self is represented, reimagined and reconfigured in a range of practices across the arts, humanities and social sciences. We seek to engage academics, writers and artists as researchers of their own and/or others’ practices in ideas related to narratives of the self. We also welcome contributions that explore the articulation of self in relation to teaching and research in Higher Education.
