CALL FOR PAPERS:
Interrogating the In-between: UNSW Humanities and Languages Postgraduate Research Conference 2015
School of Humanities and Languages, Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences
University of New South Wales, Sydney
Friday June 12th 2015
Across all disciplines in the Humanities and Languages, researchers attempt to call binary distinctions into question, whether: Self/ Other; Subject/ Object; Past/ Future; Occident/ Orient; East/ West; Identity/ Difference; Being/ Nothing; Woman/ Man; Reality/ Virtuality.
Questioning binary distinctions necessarily opens up an ‘in-between’ space, a space where lines are blurred and ideas fray at the edges.
Is the in-between a site of creativity, experimentation and reconfiguration? Or is it a site of violence-doing and oppression?
This conference aims to bring together postgraduate research students from across all disciplines in the Humanities and Languages in order to share the different ways in which their research questions binary distinctions in order to interrogate the in-between.
Postgraduate research students are asked to give 15-minute presentations about their original research. Following the presentations, discussion will be facilitated by Academic chairs.
Please submit 250 word abstracts by: Friday the 3rd of April
to: halpg2015 at gmail.com
Thank you in advance- we look forward to reading your submissions.
