Interdisciplinary Graduate Conference

  • Theme: “Representing the Misrepresented: Interdisciplinary Approaches
    to Misinformation, Unreliability, and Marginalization 
  • Date: February 27, 2016

The English Graduate Organization is pleased to announce our annual interdisciplinary conference exploring the subject of Misinformation, Unreliability, and Marginalization on Saturday, February 27, 2016.

Keynote Speaker: Dr. Sophia McClennen, Associate Director for the School of International Affairs and Professor of Comparative Literature and International Affairs, The Pennsylvania State University

Both our intellectual and personal lives have been characterized by misrepresentation, misnomers, or assumptions represented as facts. Despite this abundance, humanity has also striven to clarify, correct, or explore these misrepresentations when possible. From omissions of violent acts as part of the historical record to visual representations meant to justify oppression, research has the ability to counteract misrepresentation to bring about equality and justice.

We encourage a variety of proposals that explore the subject of Misinformation, Unreliability, and Marginalization, in all aspects. Creative presentations, such as poetry or short fiction that explore these topics are also welcomed.

For more detailed information on the 2016 English Graduate Organization Conference, please review our official 2016 call for papers.
