Craft Critique
Culture is an interdisciplinary conference focusing on the intersections
among critical and creative approaches to writing both within and beyond the
academy. This year’s conference will explore the dialectical relationship
between the periphery and center, specifically questioning the nature, theory,
practice or role of the periphery.

 

This year’s keynote presentations
will include Michal Kobialka and Jane Lewty. Michal Kobialka, a Department of
Theatre Arts and Dance professor at University of Minnesota, studies medieval
theatre historiography and postmodern theatre. Recent Writers’ Workshop
graduate Jane Lewty examines the intersection of analytical and expressionistic
prose discourses.

 

We invite submissions of critical,
theoretical, and original creative work in a variety of media and across the
humanities, sciences, and legal disciplines. In the past, submissions have included not only traditional scholarly
papers but also film, video, music, writing, visual art and artists’ books.

not limited to:

·
