Event description

Description

Keynote: Dr James Smith (Royal Holloway, University of London)

Exclamat!on: An Interdisciplinary Journal is delighted to announce its second annual conference for postgraduate research and taught students in English, Creative Writing and Film Studies.

This one-day conference aims to generate conversations on ‘Borders, Boundaries and Margins’: a topical theme within the arts and humanities, and a series of concepts with multiple meanings and interpretations. We are increasingly involved in debates concerning borders and boundaries - be they social, geographical, political, topographical, bodily, or cultural - and this conference aims to reflect this facet of our everyday and academic lives. These discussions concern not only their critical conceptualisation, but also their theoretical demarcations and potential fluidity and instability. In raising the question of what constitutes a border, boundary or margin, we are all increasingly concerned with how this demarcation can be enacted, defined, stabilised, and how it can be negotiated, crossed or transgressed. What are the discourses, language or imagery that constitute these borders, boundaries and margins? Outside of the theoretical realm, these issues also have a direct bearing on academic research, challenging us to reconsider how we might effectively conduct research across disciplinary, cultural, and social boundaries.

The conference will conclude a wine reception, during which we will also be launching the new, third issue of Exclamat!on on the theme of 'Networks and Connections'.

There is no conference fee, and students from any and all institutions are welcome to attend.

Registration: 8.45-9.30am (Digital Humanities Lab, University of Exeter, Streatham Campus)
