Bowling Green State University Presents the 8th Annual Battleground States Conference
Title: Crossing Boundaries, Revealing Connections: Experiments in Interdisciplinary Studies
February 22nd – 24th 2013

Culture is mercurial and fluid. Thus research must create, but also dispute yet engage, a transformational and reflective understanding of our subjects. The examination of knowledge and epistemologies from varying perspectives reveals the interconnections of vastly varying subjects. But to find these connections we first need to explore and experiment.

Contact Us: swes.asu@gmail.com

Given the multifaceted nature of English departments, the aim of this conference is to explore a cross-disciplinary conversation about ideologies and ideas. Because disciplines are largely characterized by their theoretical movements or opposition to such movements, submissions to this conference are encouraged to focus on suffixes. For instance, how do the suffixes of academia play a role in specific fields of study? How might -isms, -ologies, and -istics reinforce the sometimes disparate conversations among or within disciplines? How can they build connections between disciplines?
