Call For Papers

The Midwest Interdisciplinary Graduate Conference (MIGC) is now welcoming creative submissions for its 2013 conference, themed FAILURE. The conference will take place at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, February 15-16. The keynote speaker will be Professor J. Jack Halberstam (USC), author of _The Queer Art of Failure_.

Call for Creative Submissions: In a moment when dysfunction is such a significant part of both private and public life, this conference will embrace an interdisciplinary approach to considering failure’s destructive and productive aspects in historical and contemporary culture. How might we rethink failure as an opportunity to engage in more ethical human and nonhuman relationships? Can the failures of democracy, the economy, the classroom, and of culture more broadly open up possibilities for success? How do we recognize our fallibility, learn from it, and cope with it?

MIGC 2013 seeks graduate students who want to explore these questions and interrogate the concept of failure. The conference planners ask writers, artists, performers, dancers, designers, and filmmakers to send us creative pieces that take as their subject the notion of “failure.”

Short performance pieces would occur Friday evening at a location appropriate to the piece; installations would be displayed in Curtin Hall at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee for the duration of the conference; digital media could have an online presence before/during the conference as well as a display in Curtin Hall.

Submission options: [1] Send the work itself or a sample/preview of the work via email. Please include a short abstract to accompany the piece(s). [2] Write a proposal for a creative piece to be completed by February.

Please submit proposals for work in English or foreign language works translated into English. If possible, attach written submissions as Microsoft Word documents. Large image files should be sent in separate emails.

In your email please include your institutional affiliation, department, and whether you are an MFA, MA or PhD student. Joint faculty and graduate student projects will also be considered.

Deadline: December 1
