CFP RAW, March 6-7, 2015

University of Texas at Dallas
Arts & Humanities Graduate Student Association March 6th and 7th, 2015

Keynote: Sophia Roosth, Assistant Professor in the History of Science at Harvard University
Theme: Public Scholarship

Submission Deadline: December 6th, 2014
Email submissions to: utd.gsa@gmail.com

The Arts & Humanities Graduate Student Association of the University of Texas at Dallas will hold its seventh annual RAW: Research, Art, Writing Graduate Symposium on March 6th and 7th at the UT Dallas campus in Richardson, TX. Organized by and for graduate students, RAW’s goal is to continue to expand the scope of the humanities to all those interested.

In its seventh year, the RAW Symposium continues to promote the humanities as a shared space for thinkers of all disciplines. Accordingly, the theme for this year’s RAW is public scholarship. Public scholarship strives to advance intellectual and creative pursuits beyond the academy and the gallery, into public spaces and conversations. Exemplary public scholarship includes the work of thinkers like Ayaan Hirsi Ali, Gore Vidal, Melissa Harris Perry, Carl Sagan, Camille Paglia, Edward Said, Doris Kearns Goodwin, and Neil deGrasse Tyson.

RAW welcomes papers, presentations, works of art, and performances from every discipline as long as they reflect the fundamental concerns of the humanities. We are interested in works ranging from the examination of German Romanticism through a social-sciences lens to the exploration of Star Trek from the perspective of theoretical physics.

Interested participants may submit 200-word abstracts for 15-minute individual presentations of papers from across the academic spectrum: art, biology, film, physics, photography, computer sciences, sculpture, environmental sciences, games, etc., as well as submissions of full panels that may include three to four individual presentations. There are no limitations on field, genre, or methodology, as long as the presentation is inclusive and demystifying and holds the humanities close to its metaphorical heart.

Submissions may include, but are not limited to:

  • excerpt of an M.A. paper or thesis
  • excerpt of a seminar paper
  • excerpt from a dissertation
  • animation, video, or film projects
  • excerpt from a novel, play or short story • M.F.A. final project • selection of poetry • dance or other performance piece • art work (paintings, ceramics, drawings, etc.) • games

Proposals are due by December 6, 2014. All proposals must include the following:

  • A complete mailing address, e-mail address, phone number, field, and affiliation of participant • An abstract of no more than 200 words for the proposed presentation that includes 3 to 5 keywords • For creative pieces: please also include medium, space requirements for the work/presentation, Panel proposals must include the above information for each participant.

Send submissions and questions to utd.gsa@gmail.com Registration information will follow. For additional information see www.utdgsa.com.
