Call for Papers
With the rise of interdisciplinary practices, we would like to explore the interactions and tensions between the current cultural, artistic and theoretical realms. We are interested in what changes and what remains through the dynamics located at points of friction. Presentations dealing with any aspect of the conference theme, “Entanglements,” are welcome in the streams of Literary Studies, Visual Culture, Musical Culture, New Technologies, Cultural and Communication Studies or any other related discipline or discourse. The conference encourages proposals on a wide range of cultural / critical theory topics including:
Representations of home (Dis/Location)
Adaptations across media
Translations and appropriations
Hybridity and authenticity
The adjudication committee invites proposals for individual presentations relating to any facet of the conference theme. The format for each presentation is a twenty minute paper followed by discussion. Alternatively, twenty minute media performance pieces are also invited for submission; a dialogue with the artist will follow such presentations.
Proposals should include:
An abstract (approximately 250 words) for the 20 minute paper, including the title, but no other identifying features (as to ensure an unbiased selection).
An autobiographical note (maximum 50 words) to be included in the conference programme.
A brief summary of the abstract (100 words maximum), also to be included in the programme.
If applicable, what type of audio-visual equipment will be required for the presentation.
Please include contact information (name, e-mail, telephone number) as a separate file, along with the autobiographical note, abstract summary and required equipment (items 2-4). The abstract and programme information files are preferably to be written in Word or WordPerfect and sent as electronic attachments to the e-mail address shown below.
