[UPDATE] CFP: Creating Friction: An Interdisciplinary Creative-Practice Postgraduate Conference 22/04/2010

updated: 
Friday, February 5, 2010 - 7:03am
Newcastle University

With the expansion of creative possibilities for study within University settings, it is increasingly imperative that we question the borders between the creative and critical components of postgraduate study. How do the different modes of creative practice intersect with the world of traditional academia? How does a creative practitioner function as a PhD candidate? What methods can be used for assessment? What role does the accompanying critical thesis play in the context of the creative work produced? How does creative practice differ from fieldwork? What frictions are created by interdisciplinary work?

Andrew Keese / Journal of South Texas English Studies

The Journal of South Texas English Studies is now welcoming submissions until March 5 for its second issue, themed "Bridges and Borders: Exploring the Confluence of Languages, Disciplines, and Cultures."

Bridges are frequently built up and torn down, and borders often change. The boundaries between people, places and things blur and break. This happens with governments, but it is equally true in literature and rhetoric. Authors frequently challenge our notions of what is acceptable, they point out our close-mindedness, and they show us new paths.
