>   Graduate students of the University of 
>California, Riverside, are seeking papers for 
>their 13th annual humanities conference, 
>(dis)junctions. We are interested in papers on 
>nearly any topic, and this year we are 
>particularly interested in papers that span more 
>than one discipline between the humanities and 
>social sciences. Some sample topic include
>- studies of the intersection of art and literature
>- single-author studies - how have individual 
>critics (Foucault, Derrida, Althusser, Lacan) 
>been influencial across disciplines? How does 
>theory change as it moves from one discipline to 
>another?
>- defining the discipline - papers that deal 
>with the borders of a discipline (example: where 
>does ìpostcolonial theoryî stop and ìminority 
>discoursesî begin?) what are the advantages and 
>disadvantages of the methods by which we divide 
>our disciplines?
>- studies of space-time from a humanities perspective
>- the effects of the debate over Darwinism and 
>Intelligent design from multi-disciplinary 
>perspectives
>- responses to Hurrican Katrina from 
>sociological, psychological, historical, 
>scientific, rhetorical, and cultural studies 
>perspectives
>-pedagogy: teaching in response to Hurricane 
>Katrina, teaching in the multi-lingual 
>classroom, teaching against traditional 
>disciplines
>-We are, of course, also interested in 
>traditional genre and period-related papers. 
>(dis)junctions is a large conference, spanning a 
>number of themes - all topics are welcome!
>
>Please email abstracts (200-300 words) to 
>[log in to unmask] Also, please note any 
>A/V needs you may have - we can obtain VCRs, 
>DVDs, and projectors for laptops. Less standard 
>equipment possible (although not guaranteed) 
>upon request.
