Moving Forward 2011

updated: 
Monday, April 25, 2011 - 2:13pm
University of Aberdeen

Moving Forward is a conference designed by and for the postgraduate population. It aims to bring postgraduate students together from different departments, disciplines and universities, and in doing so, to help foster a sense of collective identity and create a forum for the discussion and debate of common issues. The conference also provides an annual opportunity for students to establish and maintain academic networks and to present past, current and proposed work in a supportive yet professional atmosphere.
Papers which engage with this year's theme 'Impact or Impasse: Postgraduate Research Beyond Academia' are welcomed from any of the Arts and Social Sciences disciplines. At Aberdeen, these include:

Comparative Caribbeans: an Interdisciplinary Conference*

Emory University, Atlanta GA
November 3-5, 2011

This is why we stay with poetry. And despite our consenting to all the indisputable technologies; despite seeing the political leap that must be managed..., the full load of knowledge to be tamed..., at the bow there is still something we now share: this murmur, cloud or rain or peaceful smoke. …We cry our cry of poetry. Our boats are open, and we sail them for everyone.
– Édouard Glissant
