The Marcher Metaphysicals Conference, 29 October-1 November 2015
Gregynog Hall, Tregynon, Mid-Wales

The Welsh Marches, Marchia Walliae, or Y Mers in Welsh, constitute an extensive area around the boundary between England and Wales. This border country, in its breadth and somewhat hazy demarcation, defies precise definition, and invites fluidity of ideas and perception. The Marches are both a place in their own right, and an approach to somewhere else; they form a site of great natural beauty but also of historic political contention. Norman conquerors used these lands to subdue the native Welsh, as well as to create a jurisdiction separate from the English crown.

[UPDATE] The Coming of Age of LGBTQ Studies: Past, Present, and Future Directions (San Diego State University, April 17-18, 2015

updated: 
Monday, September 8, 2014 - 1:45pm
SDSU LGBTQ Research Consortium

As LGBTQ Studies finds disciplinary space on a growing number of university and college campuses, questions about the cultural and intellectual effects of academic institutionalization have become progressively more urgent:

• Where is the broad field of LGBTQ Studies heading?
• Where has it been? How might we negotiate the relationship between intellectual inquiry and social movements?
• In what ways might the epistemological concerns of LGBTQ Studies affect the pedagogical imperatives of the classroom (and vice-versa)?

"The Coming of Age of LGBTQ Studies" is a two-day conference devoted to exploring these and related questions.
