UCL Interdisciplinary Postgraduate Conference 2014: 'Distance and Proximity'
Publication date: May 16, 2014 12:27 PM
Jun 26, 2014 09:00 AM
End: Jun 27, 2014 07:00 PM
Location: Room 347, SSEES 16 Taviton Street, London, WC1H 0BW
The conference features papers by postgraduate students across a wide spectrum of interests and disciplines whose work offers perspectives relating to the concept(s) of Distance and Proximity. In particular, these are papers that interrogate these notions in an interdisciplinary manner and explore their critical possibilities.
We invite graduate researchers working in fields related to European languages, cultures, and society to respond to this critical interrogation, and in doing so, reflect on how concepts of distance and proximity operate in different theoretical contexts, and whether interconnections between various fields may be achieved or disconnections rendered productive.
The conference will be structured into chaired panels whose organisation reflects the interdisciplinary nature of the conference and an attempt to approach ideas of distance and proximity from a variety of theoretical perspectives and across orthodox disciplinary boundaries.
