full name / name of organization:

contact email: 

As part of this year’s (dis)junctions 2008, writers are invited to
dialogue across campus divides, and incorporate theoretical, ideological,
and/or research findings into their creative work. We encourage actual
contact with student and faculty researchers in other departments for
clarification of ideas and purposes, but work that is based on
substantial considerations of current research is also welcome.

We are also interested in papers that examine the current relationship of
Creative Writing Programs to other university departments, and that
describe and/or postulate innovative practices that could connect writing
with the social, political, scientific, and humanities developments
within campuses.

This panel is taking two types of submissions:

1) Creative submissions based upon research developments in other
campus departments :
a. Up to three (3) poems (limit three pages)
b. Short fiction (500-3000 words)
c. Short plays or scenes from longer works (10 - 15 pages)
d. Creative Non-Fiction (500-3000 words)
Also include a paragraph describing the intercampus relationship
(researcher, topic, department) and the dialogue or articles that
inspired the work.
Selected creative writings will be posted and writers will be invited to
read their work in a session at the conference.

2) Papers examining the relationship of Creative Writing to other
departments: how are programs situated to encourage the translation of
ideas and developments for readers outside university intellectual
territories? What benefits are there for the academy in encouraging
dialogue â€" either internally or externally?

For creative submissions (see above guidelines), can be sent to panel
chair Brenda Varda at with the heading CREATIVE

For papers, please submit 250-word proposals (for presentations approx.
15 minutes in length) to the same email with the heading CREATIVE

Submissions deadline is February 15th, 2008.

Attachments should be in Rich Text or Word format only, and please
include your name, professional affiliation, and contact information in
the body of your email.
