Champlain College in Burlington, Vermont will host an international
academic symposium on July 2-5, 2009 amidst the pageantry of the
Champlain Quadricentennial Observances commemorating Samuel de
Champlain’s exploration of Lake Champlain in 1609. The 2009 celebration
of historical memory and identity in the Lake Champlain Basin evokes the
150 year French presence in the region (beginning with its exploration by
Champlain in 1609) and perpetuates a tradition of earlier observances of
public memory in 1909 and 1959.

CFP: [Graduate] New Directions in Critical Theory Conference: Academic Geographies and the Space Between Disciplines

updated: 
Thursday, November 8, 2007 - 1:25pm
James E. Wermers

New Directions in Critical Theory is an annual interdisciplinary graduate
student conference at the University of Arizona; the 2008 conference will
focus on a self-conscious examination of the ways we do work at the
university. While interdiscplinarity questions the boundaries that mark off
everything from university departments to methods of inquiry, the space
between disciplines is not a neutral zone. When we shuffle prefixes and
suffixes in an attempt to announce new disciplines and identities, we work
in a liminal space that we participate in creating. This endeavor must be
undertaken cautiously; remapping disciplines and identities is never an
innocent game.
