Elsewhere: Wandering In and Out of the Humanities: New Voices Graduate Conference (Georgia State University in Atlanta, Georgia: 1-3 February 2018)

Deadline: 15 Oct 2017

The 2018 New Voices Graduate Conference invites submissions that consider concepts of elsewhere. How do the terms interdisciplinary, difference, and othering delineate the elsewhere of cultural studies? What do authors and texts stand to gain wandering outside canonical forms? We also invite papers that explore the elsewheres of canonical texts, as well as papers that illuminate uncanonized and/or forgotten works.

We invite proposals for papers, panels, roundtable discussions, workshops, and creative writing. Possible areas of inquiry include, but are not limited to:

* Physical spaces
* Elsewhere as a pedagogical device
* Diaspora studies
* Indigenous studies
* Global perspectives
* Feminism, the body, and elsewhere
* Elsewhere in film, music, poetry, fiction, literary study, or rhetoric and composition
* Elsewhere as exile
* Elsewhere in digital spaces
* Historical interpretations of elsewhere, othering, and the canon
* Elsewhere in the discipline and the academy

Submit an abstract of 200-300 words along with contact information to the New Voices Planning Committee via our online form.
