Call For Papers

Intersections | Cross-sections, a two-day interdisciplinary conference organized by the Joint Graduate Program in Communication & Culture at York University and Ryerson University, invites academic and artistic submissions for the Intersections | Cross-sections 2019 Graduate Conference & Art Exhibition, to be held on March 8 and 9, 2019.

The conference theme, Versus, encourages submissions that explore and engage with contradictions, oppositions, and controversies. We are particularly interested in proposals for works that consider the conversations, dialogues, and debates that are produced when we respectfully consider divergent and/or seemingly opposed viewpoints.

Potential prompts for submission include, but are not limited to:

Controversy in the media
Controversial objects or spaces
Narrative oppositions in literature or film
Contradicting discourses in academia, politics, or popular culture
‘Hacktivism’, or, digital media and freedom of information movements
Online radicalization and the rise of the alt-right
‘Fake news’ and the role of the media in creating divisive political climates
How do different modes of communication produce different dialogues?
Free speech or hate speech? Questions of protest and dialogue on university campuses
What is the role of contradictions in constructing and maintaining ideological systems?
Can controversy be a productive force for disrupting systems of power?
Image, video, meme, and/or sound juxtapositions for meaning-creation
Distinctions between fiction and non-fiction, and the blurring of these categories in art


Deadline: Submissions due January 11th, 2019.
