Call For Papers:
Presenting research at Significations allows current Graduate Students the opportunity to share their research, engage in academic discussion of their work, and participate in the unique realm of academic conferences. 

Submission Deadline: January 22, 2019

Conference Date: March 22, 2018

Paper Topics:
Significations Graduate Student Conference theme for 2019 is “Alternative Narratives: Realism, Mysticism, and Divergence”. This conference invites submissions engaged in illuminating silenced, obscured, and overlooked voices. We welcome projects that question the nature of these narratives: What defines them as “alternative”? Have these voices always been obscured? How do these voices talk from margins of obscurity? We also accept submissions that go beyond the conference theme. Due to the interdisciplinary nature of the conference, we welcome all fields of study. Some fields of interest include: Creative Writing, Critical Theory, Philosophy, History, Linguistics, Cultural Studies, Pan-African Studies, Native American Studies, Sociology, Psychology, Natural and Social Sciences, etc.

Keynote Speaker: TBA

The School for Endurance Work attempts to re-tool the institution as a place of interdisciplinary public engagement through animation, fashion, music, painting, performance, photography, writing, and sculpture. This exhibition intends to educate the audience that we do not exist in isolation and artists are often times influenced by and critical of the world around them. The School for Endurance Work features LA-based artists whose work is at the intersection of critical history, community engagement, feminism, revolution, sustainability, and visual resistance.

Curated by Carole Frances Lung, artist, activist, and Cal State LA Professor of Fashion, Fiber, and Materials.
