DEFIANCE: An Interdisciplinary Graduate Conference
**DEADLINE EXTENDED: May 8, 2017**
Hard times are coming, when we’ll be wanting the voices of writers who can see alternatives to how we live now, can see through our fear-stricken society and its obsessive technologies to other ways of being, and even imagine real grounds for hope. We’ll need writers who can remember freedom – poets, visionaries – realists of a larger reality. […] We live in capitalism, its power seems inescapable – but then, so did the divine right of kings. Any human power can be resisted and changed by human beings. Resistance and change often begin in art. Very often in our art, the art of words.

How We Make
Trace: Journal of Writing, Media, Ecology is an online, refereed, open-access journal that publishes interdisciplinary research at the intersections of writing studies, media studies, cultural studies, and ecocriticism. We welcome scholarship about digital technology, art, literature, maker culture, rhetoric, composition, environments, and writing. Trace considers the ethical and material impact of technology, and encourages submissions in a variety of media that “trace” connections across and within various ecologies.
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.

Difference and Repetition: Academic Labour after RSI
Thursday 25th May 2017, 6-7:30 PM
Academic labour is often considered to be abstract and disembodied in the popular imagination, and its recent transformation by digital technologies might make this seem even more the case. But the advent of the digital also makes all with digits, physically standardising scholarly activity into the same few motions required to interact with a keyboard, mouse or screen. Academic work has a real, and for some, a lasting, corporeal impact.
