full name / name of organization: 

InterActions: the Fifth Annual Arts and Humanities Graduate Conference at the University of Glasgow.

Call for Papers

Interaction is a fundamental feature of research in the Arts and Humanities. This conference seeks to explore diverse interactions that shape new ars of investigation and provide a fresh look at interdisciplinary practices.

This graduate conference will explore the ways in which an exchange of ideas and methodologies within the Arts and Social Sciences can produce new routes of thinking and activity. We invite short papers on a range of subjects and interactive or interdisciplinary approaches in all aspects of the Arts and Humanities, Social Sciences, Education, and the creative and performing fields. Examples of questions that might be helpful when thinking about the topic include: What are the new possibilities that result from an interactive environment in research? How do traditional fields or areas interact with the modern world and its culture? How is the issue of cultural identity and a sense of belonging revisited through inter/intra cultural interactions?

Abstracts should be a maximum of 200 words in length, and should be submitted in English with the speaker's name, institutional affiliation and title of the paper. This is the fifth conference of its kind at the University of Glasgow, and promises to continue the tradition of providing rich social and intellectual interaction within that vibrant city.

Suggested themes include but are not limited to:
• Non-textual forms of communication
• The global and the local
• Postcolonial interaction
• Interactive spaces
• Gendered spaces
• Text and context
• Interpretation/Translation/Adaptation
• Clashes and Convergences
• Identity and the self
• Human-machine interaction
• Interactive art and art on the web
• Humans and environment
• Fact and fiction
• Science and art
• The crowd/The audience/The speaker

Please email abstracts to and see for further information.

The deadline for abstracts is 1 August 2006.
