The Iowa Journal of Cultural Studies, a peer-reviewed academic journal edited by graduate students and dedicated to publishing cultural studies scholarship from both established and emerging scholars, is currently soliciting submissions for an upcoming special issue on: Bridging Divides.
Discourses concerning the concept of (dis)connection are especially prevalent in contemporary society. The relationship between the mind and the body – whether fractured or in flux – feeds into notions of identity, the self, and the 'other'. Contemporary scholarship focusing upon borders, transformations and creations considers the manifold ways in which the body can be (re)organised and (dis)assembled.
"YOU ARE HERE": AN INTERDISCIPLINARY CONFERENCE ON PLACE, SPACE, AND EMBODIMENT
March 11-13, 2016 at Creighton University
At the root of every critical discussion, from politics to religion to student affairs, is a discussion of space, place, and location — where am I? Where can I go? Who else is here? Who cares?
Place holds a particular importance in understanding society and the social relations within it. With questions on the importance of this "ever-shifting social geometry of power and signification" (Massey 1994) that is the 'spatial,' "You Are Here," is a conference dedicated to exploring the questions and implications of space and place.

Not simply a blank, [image here] functions as a placeholder—a formatted but unpopulated space. A page under construction, a refusal to show or be shown, an empty frame. Marking what is indicated but not given, [image here] simultaneously exposes and withdraws from the logic of representation.
This conference seeks to elaborate the turn to non-representation in recent philosophy, media theory, art, and related fields. We invite contributions that trace non-representational strategies––in theory and practice––across history, media, and disciplines.
