Call For Papers

The Humanities Center at Texas Tech Annual Conference 2020: “Justice”
Texas Tech University, Lubbock, Texas
April 3-4, 2020

The Humanities Center at Texas Tech University (Lubbock, Texas) is happy to announce a call for papers for our Third Annual Conference in the Humanities, to be held in Lubbock over April 3-4 2020. The conference topic each year aligns with the Center's annual theme, which for 2019-2020 is “Justice.” We are interested in the interdisciplinary study of justice in myriad forms and across any of the following disciplines: art, literature, history, film and media, music, philosophy, law, digital humanities, museum and/or archival studies, critical race studies, ethnic studies, women’s and gender studies, design, and education. This list, in keeping with the Humanities Center’s expansive mission, is open-ended.

The Center's vision of the humanities is a broad one and we encourage presentations and panels that rethink disciplinary boundaries and traditional academic research. That said, we are also comprehensive in our historical scope. How might a concentrated return to the literature of ancient Greece inform contemporary social justice activism? How does representation in literature and the arts contribute to the mission of Black Lives Matter or complement #MeToo’s public conversation? What possibilities for redress lie in the intersection between technology and culture? How do the humanities engage the problem of mass incarceration or address the unjust treatment of immigrants at the border? The conference aims to bring together an international group of scholars in order to consider as comprehensively as we can the relationship between conceptualizations of justice and definitions of humanity, as well as pay close attention to the denigration of humanity on which acts of injustice so often turn.

The TTU Humanities Center welcomes abstracts for individual papers as well as proposals for fully formed panels that address these or other related issues. Potential speakers should send an abstract of 300 words and a brief CV (no more than 2 pages) highlighting work relevant to the topic at hand. Scholars proposing a panel should provide an abstract of no more than 500 words and include a list of contributors (with the titles of their papers) as well as brief CVs (no more than 2 pages) for each. Abstracts and panel proposals should be submitted to humanitiescenter@ttu.edu by November 27, 2019 with all documents contained in a single PDF. In the subject line of your submission, please use the format "JUSTICEConference/YOUR NAME/YOUR PROPOSAL or ABSTRACT TITLE" (e.g., JUSTICEConference/Smith/Plato’sRepublicAndSocialJustice) as the subject line in your email. We will make decisions as soon as possible after that in order to ensure sufficient time for participants to make travel arrangements.
