Call For Papers/Participants
The Free Exchange Graduate Student Conference at the University of Calgary seeks abstracts for papers for our forthcoming conference on the roles of type in cultural production. We are most interested in work that engages with the topic of this multi-disciplinary conference in original ways, from material print culture to identity politics; from examinations of migration to site-specific textual analysis. Whether questioning existing methods of literary production or engaging with the gender/genre dynamics of cultural production, we embrace vigorous research on the complicated life, mobility, and circulation of text.
Please submit 250 word abstracts for original academic papers on the conference theme by January 8th 2010 to freeex@ucalgary.ca. We invite participation from graduate students of any discipline, including but not limited to English literature, film studies, visual culture, gender studies, and cultural studies.
We also welcome creative writing submissions for our creative writing panel and events. The conference will commence the evening of Friday, March 12th with a creative performance event at Pages Bookstore in Kensington.
Please go to our web site or contact conference organizers for possible conference topics or if you have questions.
