FLUX: The University of Melbourne School of Art History, Cinema, Classics and Archaeology’s (AHCCA) FINAL Postgraduate Association Conference will be held on the 9th and 10th of November 2006.
To mark the end of AHCCA in 2006 the Postgraduate Association is holding a two day conference on the subject of FLUX. With its connotations of flow and fusion, of formation, dissolution and reformulation, FLUX reflects both the interdisciplinary spirit of this year’s conference and the current status of AHCCA within The University of Melbourne.
Papers are now invited that consider and/or engage with the theme of FLUX from a range of perspectives in Art History, Cinema Studies, Classics, Near Eastern, Mediterranean and Classical Archaeology, Curatorship and Conservation, as well as other related disciplines within the humanities. Papers are welcome from all postgraduate students across Australia and New Zealand.
Topics might include:
the politics and poetics of change, transition, and/or regression
memory, nostalgia, regret
obsolescence and/or renewal
metamorphosis and mutation
the reformulation of empires and borders
globalisation, migration and citizenship
resisting, reclaiming, or rewriting orthodoxies
the effects of time and/or space on the subjects of material culture
perspective, spectacle, display
changing forums for cultural production and exhibition (museums, galleries, theatres, workshops, screens)
the negotiation and articulation of identity
birth, rebirth, death, the afterlife
