Visions of Elsewhere
The College of Liberal Arts is hosting the first annual Graduate Symposium at
Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi, on April 17-18, 2014. The symposium theme
will be "Visions of Elsewhere." It was inspired by the university's unique
location in South Texas, at the crossroads of many histories and peoples. It is
designed to reflect on the ways borders, frontiers, and movements of peoples,
ideas, and goods have been imagined and challenged. What kind of visions,
fantasies, as well as experiences of boundaries, borders, or other places,
elsewheres, or lost places emerge? How do we imagine different possibilities
of communitiy and identity? What kind of cultural forms are used? How do we
attend to experiences of place and identity? We encourage submissions that
address topics of representation, modernity, desire, utopia, nostalgia, memory,
as well as travel, place, migration, colonialism, and post-colonialism, globalism,
transnationalism. Other suggested themes are visual rhetoric, discourse communicaties,
languages and hybridity. The submission deadline is February 1, 2014.
