>The Entanglements conference is an interdisciplinary congress for graduate
>researchers and scholars.  With the rise of interdisciplinary practices, we

>- Adaptations across media
>- Translations and appropriations
>- Body-technology interactions
>- Hybridity and authenticity
>- Cultural cross-dressing

>Proposals

>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:
>1) An abstract (approximately 250 words) for the 20 minute paper, including
