>>Specialization in the humanities sometimes obscures the potential benefits
>>of interdisciplinary exchange.  This exchange occurs in two phases:
>>visualizing or conceptualizing possible synergies, and then implementing or
>>practicing them.  We want to explore not only the benefits of current
>>interdisciplinary work, but also to begin visualizing future confluences.
>>
>>We invite scholars from all disciplines to present works that examine the
>>current and potential intersections of literature, history, anthropology,
>>sociology, art history, architecture, film, pedagogy, political science, and
>>linguistics.  Possible panel topics include:
>>
>>Teaching in the Humanities - translating knowledge into pedagogical
>>approaches
>>
>>Linguistics in Literature and other Reciprocities
>>
>>Ethics of Boundaries - literature at the fringes (minority, colonial, etc.)
>>
>>>From the Outside In - German literature from other perspectives
>>
>>What is a Text? - viewing film, journalism, and music as textual materials
>>
>>The Rhetoric of Science - investigations of the 'metalanguage' of the
>>sciences
>>
