The York Deviancy Conference, 29th June-1st July 2011

Thursday, November 25, 2010 - 5:54am
University of York

The conference theme is broadly conceived and we are keen to encourage papers from a variety of critical perspectives. We are particularly eager to encourage papers that are speculative, theoretically informed, future oriented, as well as those straying outside the usual parameters of mainstream criminological thought.

Key themes:
• All aspects of crime and deviance
• Social disorder and conduct
• Social harms in their diverse forms

The French Graduate Student Association of Columbia University is pleased to announce its 20th Graduate Student conference, to be held March 4th, 2011.

The conference will take as its theme text and image in French and world literatures and art. We will explore how text and image complement and interact and compete with one another in composite works, and how an understanding of each can inform readings of hybrid works, such as textual/lettrist art, visual poetry, film, and even theatre. Graduate students of all departments are welcome to submit abstracts of 300-500 words, and we especially welcome projects with a comparative focus and/or approach. Possible topics include but are not limited to:
