UBC Okanagan: 7th Annual Interdisciplinary Graduate Student Conference
Bumping Zones: Bridging the Gaps between Disciplinary Research
The 2016 Interdisciplinary Graduate Students’ Conference now welcomes submissions from scholars, students, researchers, artists, and activists engaging in interdisciplinary and multimedia work. This conference brings together a diverse community of researchers, artists and experimenters from across North America. In its seventh year, the conference focuses on “bumping zones,” which are liminal spaces of intersection where unique and differentiated regions of thought and discipline meet and thrive.
We welcome submissions for papers, panels, individual or collaborative presentations, workshops, performances, visual art, walk and talks, discussion, interventions, and public debates. We seek work that crosses disciplines, offers up strange relationships, engages within discordant and dissonant spaces, and finds new ways to articulate what it means to come up “against” the grain.
