The Concordia University Doctoral Program in the Humanities and the Centre for Interdisciplinary Studies in Society and Culture(CISSC) cordially invite proposals for papers, workshops and presentations for their 2012 Conference on the Humanities.

eXhibitions focuses on the bridge/link/ground between the Humanities and the Fine Arts. The conference itself will be presented as an art exhibition, with workshops, roundtable discussions, and lectures taking place within a gallery space.

Explorations in painting, drawing, sculpture, performance, installations, textile arts, dance, sound, photo, and moving image may be made (im)material in the form of presentations, collaborations, and interventions that will challenge the space of eXhibitions.

We particularly encourage works that cut across disciplinary boundaries to synthesize unexpected modes of thought and practice, merging discourses in the Fine Arts and all the fields in the Humanities.

Please send a 300-500 word proposal or abstract with supporting documentation (media files or portfolio website links), technical requirements, and a brief biographical note to:

The deadline for submissions is March 15, 2011.

Since 1973, students in the program have pursued innovative interdisciplinary research and art-based practice in areas that span the Humanities, Social Sciences, and Fine Arts.
