Transformations

A Postgraduate Interdisciplinary Conference
7th – 8th July 2011


Cardiff University is pleased to announce an international and interdisciplinary conference - run by and for postgraduate research students - on the theme of ‘Transformations', which is scheduled to take place on 7/8 July 2011.

This year’s conference will be aimed at doctoral students whose research work converges on the theme of Transformations. The conference will attract doctoral students from a variety of disciplines including English, History, European Studies, Welsh, Archaeology, Religious Studies, Journalism, Cultural Studies, Music, Philosophy, Politics, Sociology and other Social Sciences. The aim is to enhance understanding by providing the opportunity for interdisciplinary cross-fertilisation of ideas.

Proposals for papers are invited from postgraduate researchers across the UK and overseas in order to foster institutional links between students.

Examples of themes to be explored are:

  • Transformation of the self/other
  • Social/political transformation
  • Creative/digital transformation
  • Past or future transformation
  • Transformation of space/place
  • Philosophical/religious transformation
  • Ethical or legal transformation

The deadline for abstracts is 5pm, Sunday 15th May 2011. To submit a proposal, please send a 200 word abstract of the paper’s contribution to the conference theme, to Transformations@cf.ac.uk. Papers should not exceed 20 minutes and proposals should include contact details and a brief biographical note.

The Transformations student committee will consider all abstracts received and you will be informed via email approximately two weeks after the deadline as to whether or not your abstract has been accepted.

The conference is free of charge. Limited accommodation in student halls of residence will be available on a first come first served basis at a cost of £27.53 per night (including breakfast).
