2nd Annual MEDUSA graduate student colloquium, 19-20 March 2014
Call for Papers: MEDUSA graduate student colloquium, 19-20 March 2014
Continuity and Change
The Anthropology Graduate Students' Union (AGSU) at the University of Toronto invites proposals for the 2nd annual MEDUSA graduate student colloquium. The colloquium will take place on Wednesday, March 19th and Thursday, March 20th 2014 at the Department of Anthropology at the University of Toronto, St. George campus.
Following on the success of last year’s colloquium, the theme of the 2014 colloquium is “Continuity and Change.” We encourage the submission of high-quality graduate-student research on any topic, but most especially those which creatively interpret issues of temporality, stasis, and change. The colloquium is open to graduate students across disciplines and institutions. Colloquium Format:
We are accepting both panel presentation submissions as well as individual paper presentations. Individual papers will be grouped together into a relevant panel. Deadline for submissions is February 21, 2014.
In addition to presentation submissions, this year we will also be showcasing mediated works produced through the ‘fieldwork’ encounter. This includes photos, auditory media, or other creative compositions related to ethnographic research, such as images of ‘fieldwork’ experiences. These media will be displayed at an opening reception on Wednesday, March 19th. Participants are welcome to submit a media work in addition to a presentation, if they wish. Modest funds are available to facilitate the submission of visual media, for instance to cover the cost of developing photos. We encourage creative submissions; please contact us should you require any further clarification.
