BABEL is a non-hierarchical scholarly collective and para-institutional desiring-assemblage with no leaders or followers, no top and no bottom, and only a middle. We build temporary shelters for intellectual vagabonds. The conference has a dual focus: on the one hand, a rigorous study of book history and media studies, and on the other, serious discussions about academic activism, para-academic pursuits, and the current state and future directions of the modern university. The conference also has a number of artistic and performative contributions.  The full conference program can be found here: http://babel-meeting.org/2015-meeting/2015-program/ .

This event is free for students and faculty of the University of Toronto. For information about registration and program, please see the event website, HERE.
