We are issuing a Call for Proposals for scholarly and creative
submissions for a National Interdisciplinary Graduate Student
Conference entitled "Transmission, Translation, Relocation" to be held
at Indiana University in Bloomington from March 26-28, 2009.

The words "transmission," "translation," and "relocation" all imply
the presence of movement as well as the presence (or possibility) of
change. Such ideas of movement and change suggest a broad range of
topics (for example, the transmission of thought, affect, or disease,
the translation of a text from one language or medium to another, or
the relocation of people or power). This conference seeks to explore
how we account for these types of movements, and what types of
knowledge they might form.

Possible topics of proposals for scholarly or creative work may
include but are not limited to:

Genre studies
Parody and Satire
Studies of disease
Performance studies
Transmission/Translation through media
Transmission of emotions and affect
Studies of Diaspora
Postcolonial studies
Ideological lineages
Disability studies
Publishing culture
Reception studies
Convergence culture
Studies of public policy
(Trans)gender and sexuality studies
Power dynamics

We encourage proposals for individual projects as well as panel
proposals organized by topic. We particularly encourage creative
presentations and interdisciplinary projects. Please submit an
abstract of no more than 250 words and a short description of yourself
by January 15, 2009 to <>.
