About this Event
At the root of every critical discussion are questions of space, place, and location. Place holds a particular importance in understanding society and the social relations within it. Interrogating the importance of this “ever-shifting social geometry of power and signification” (Massey 1994) that is the ‘spatial,’ “You Are Here” is a conference dedicated to exploring the implications of space and place on the people within them.
“You Are Here” welcomes papers, proposed panels, roundtables, poster sessions, and other session formats from students and scholars at all stages of their careers and in various disciplines. These include but are certainly not limited to: literature, rhetorical criticism, pedagogical studies, medical humanities, sociology, anthropology, theology, history, law, political science, and fine arts.
Our first keynote is Dr. Manu Samriti Chander, an Associate Professor in English at Rutgers University – Newark.
Our second keynote is Dr. Stacey Waite, an Associate Professor in English at the University of Nebraska – Lincoln.
