(dis)junctions 2005: theory reloaded is the 12th annual humanities graduate student conference at the University of California, Riverside. It is a two-day event, spanning Friday and Saturday, April 8-9, 2005.
Keynote: We are pleased to announce that this year’s keynote is Judith Halberstam. Professor Halberstam is the author of The Transgender Moment: Gender Flexibility and the Postmodern Condition (2004), The Drag King Book (1999 w/LaGrace Volcano), Female Masculinity (1998), Skin Shows: Gothic Horror and the Technology of Monsters (1995), and co-editor of Posthuman Bodies (1995 w/Ira Livingston).
Submissions: (dis)junctions conferences are intended to foster critical awareness of current academic issues and trends from across the humanities. This year’s theme, “theory reloaded,” hopes to encourage conversations that put into question the way theory informs the way we conceive and structure our research projects. Because of the very nature of our conference, we are seeking interdisciplinary approaches. We encourage both critical and creative submissions.
Individual abstracts and/or abstracts for pre-formed panels of three presenters should be sent to the e-mail address shown below by January 7, 2005. Please indicate your name and conference panel in the email subject line; abstracts in the body of message. No attachments, please. The submissions should be no longer than 250 words for individual proposals and 750 for panel proposals.
Applications sent via postal mail must be postmarked no later than January 7, 2005 and should be sent to the following postal address.
We are currently accepting individual abstracts and abstracts for pre-formed panels of three papers that demonstrate innovative and original approaches to and a critical awareness of all fields within humanities and social science disciplines.
