Interdisciplinarity and the Job Market

Sunday, July 7, 2013 - 11:20am
45th Annual Convention, Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA) April 3-6, 2014

Navigating interdisciplinarity when on the job market is tricky, and interdisciplinarians often shortchange specialties to fit traditional calls. This roundtable aims to examine how to capitalize on and effectively foreground interdisciplinary strengths within the pivotal context of application materials. Co-sponsored by NeMLA's Graduate and Women's and Gender Studies Caucuses, this session's goal is to cover best practices to help craft one's letter and C.V. better.

We invite abstracts on a range of topics that would be most beneficial in assisting scholars from all ranks in better negotiating the nuances of the job market and interdisciplinary studies.

1st International "Liberal Arts at Sapir" Conference

Sunday, July 7, 2013 - 4:06am
Dept. of Multi Disciplinary Studies, Sapir Academic College, Israel

Borders are dangerous, hesitant, unstable, and yet, opportunities for co-existence. Borders are narrow and therefore inhabitable; one can turn back to revisit the familiar or push forward into unexplored terrains. Borders transform and reassemble identities; they define and disengage, untie and unite.
This conference sets out to explore the concepts of border, limit and threshold within and between disciplines, theoretical approaches and methodologies in the humanities and social sciences. Fields/areas of research and topics include, but are not limited to:
Crossing literal and figurative boundaries
Hybridity, liminality, and intertexuality
Adaptation and Appropriation
Queer Theory
