Florida Atlantic University Comparative Studies Student Association
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, July 31, 2017

EXTENDED DEADLINE-31 JULY 2017 Our Fall 2017 Comparative Studies Student Association Interdisciplinary Conference will focus on questions of power.  Where is power found? How does power exert control? Power and control form the foundation of relationships within institutions (government, gender, self, etc.) but also invite conflict. These concepts serve to establish order and stability, but can also inspire disorder and a desire to destabilize when they become oppressive. Understanding the mechanisms of power and how they exert control, how power and control are distributed, becomes imperative in understanding and possibly resolving conflict.

Sound has always been there. However, its ephemeral condition has prevented us from critically listening to the past and even from thinking about our everyday sonic experiences. Moreover, the sonic materialization of the Logos —voice—  has been systematically relegated to a second level, even when orality was present in the production of any kind of text.

One of the most recognized lines in cinema comes to us from The Wizard of Oz: “There’s no place like home.” While Dorothy’s adventures primarily take place in the techni-colorful land of Oz, she ultimately returns to her sepia-toned Kansas farm, reaffirming the viewer's faith in the plain ol’ values of home and family.
