Postgraduate Conference 2019

Faculty of Arts and Humanities, University of Stirling

Friday, 31st May 2019


?

The University of Stirling, which hosted this year's annual MeCCSA conference?<https://www.stir.ac.uk/about/faculties-and-services/arts-humanities/news-events/conferences/meccsa-2019/>, would like to invite postgraduate students and early career researchers to send academic and creative practice contributions on the theme of DISRUPTION.


CALL FOR PROPOSALS


"Times of crisis, of disruption or constructive change, are not only predictable, but desirable. They mean growth. Taking a new step, uttering a new word, is what people fear most."

Fyodor Dostoevsky<https://www.azquotes.com/author/4085-Fyodor_Dostoevsky>



To live is to experience disruption. From history to contemporary politics, it continues to shape society. A cornerstone of creativity, disruption breaks the mould, shatters glass ceilings, and radically challenges how we live, work and play. Yet, disruption is often portrayed as negative, painful and unnecessary. From cliché to fundamental component of life, this conference offers an opportunity to explore through research the meaning and impact of one word in both personal and public spheres.

While we invite expansive contributions from all disciplines within the Arts and Humanities and in collaboration across disciplines, the theme should be explored through an Arts & Humanities perspective. We welcome papers on, but not limited to, the following topics:





Climate change
        Revolution

Political corruption    Misinformation
Brexit  Democratic rights
Rise of self-publishing Digital technology and story-telling
Diversity in publishing         Rise of the anti-expert
News by algorithm       Innovation in journalism
Impact of technology on language        Data deluge
Language evolution & adaptation Cognitive functions and language
Technology and the creative process     Humanity and technology



Papers should last no more than 20 minutes and will be followed by discussion. Proposals from Undergraduate (final year), Masters, and PhD students are welcome. We also encourage creative practice contributions.


Please submit an abstract of no more than two hundred words to [log in to unmask]<[log in to unmask]" target="_blank">http:[log in to unmask]> with "YOUR NAME" and "ABSTRACT" in the subject line by 9am on Monday April 1st 2019.
