(dis)junctions Graduate Conference / University of California, Riverside

"Misery acquaints a man with strange bedfellows."-Shakespeare's The Tempest (2.2)

UC Riverside's (dis)junctions conference invites papers and panels that push at the boundary of contemporary scholarship. Our critical focus, "Strange Bedfellows," is geared specifically toward innovative and interdisciplinary approaches to cultural, literary and theoretical texts. We are looking particularly for scholarship that emerges from the disjunction of incongruent forms, that thrives on the border of the unfamiliar, and that transgresses the boundary of the expected.

As explained by Michael S. Roth in his 2014 book _Beyond the University: Why Liberal Education Matters_, the Founding Fathers endorsed liberal learning. Thomas Jefferson promoted a university ideal of freedom, education, and responsible citizenry to ensure democratic efficacy. However, centuries later, many American universities struggle to sustain these ideals. Liberal arts education is often overshadowed by career-centered professional studies and STEM programs, which downplay the importance of whole person pedagogy and democratic involvement.
