UPDATE: [Theory] New Directions in Critical Theory––Deadline Changed

DEADLINE UPDATE

New Directions in Critical Theory is an annual interdisciplinary graduate
student conference at the University of Arizona; the 2008 conference will
focus on a self-conscious examination of the ways we do work at the
university. While interdiscplinarity questions the boundaries that mark

space between disciplines is not a neutral zone. When we shuffle prefixes
and suffixes in an attempt to announce new disciplines and identities, we
work in a liminal space that we participate in creating. This endeavor
must be undertaken cautiously; remapping disciplines and identities is
never an innocent game.
