updated: 
Thursday, October 25, 2012 - 10:12pm
University of Cincinnati English Composition Program

"New knowledge arises out of taking radically different conceptual blocs, rubbing them together and making revolutionary fire."
-David Harvey

The University of Cincinnati Composition Program invites proposals for the fourth annual interdisciplinary graduate student conference to be held at the University of Cincinnati on Saturday, April 6, 2013. Our emphasis this year focuses on being undisciplined: breaking down walls, bending rules, and questioning the rigid structure of our fields. In every discipline, divisions and gaps are present and are in fact necessary to generate innovation and creative thinking.

Renovation: A Regional Interdisciplinary Graduate Student Conference, March 1-2, 2013

University of Nevada, Reno

At the turn of the 20th century, Ezra Pound declared the need to "make it new." His call inspired numerous artists, creators, critics, and theorists to push the boundaries of their fields, to discover and invent original forms and technologies, to develop new modes of thinking about ourselves and our worlds—in short, to innovate. Nationally, this translated to the renovation of cities and borders and significant innovations in travel and technology. In the academy, scholars reconceptualized disciplines and established new canons, methodologies, and theoretical models. The drive to innovate to make things new is one of the 20th century's most noted legacies.

For Louisiana State University's upcoming graduate student conference on the theme of "In Momentum: Literature, Travel, and Alterity," this panel seeks to explore the exciting field of Arab American/immigrant literature. Of particular interest are the ways immigrant writers have approached American culture in their writings (Arabic and English), given the fact that their cultural background is rich with values, principle, ideals, and so on. We invite students and scholars who are interested in Arab American/immigrant literature to submit conference paper abstracts that discuss the Arab literary presentation of American (and western) cultures.

Health, Mental Health, and Literature - March 9th

Boston College English Graduate Conference

The Boston College English Graduate Conference seeks abstracts for papers that consider the intersection between health, mental health, and literature.

Considering recent interdisciplinary developments in the field of "medical humanities," we are interested in exploring the ways in which literature and other creative arts have attempted to represent or otherwise understand health, which is so often analyzed from a clinical or scientific perspective. We seek papers that work to synthesize clinical approaches and literary approaches to the mind and body. What can be gained by merging literary and scientific analyses?
