“You Are Here” is a conference originally developed by committed graduate students in the MA program at Creighton University. Spearheaded by Tierney Powell, now a PhD student at the University of Illinois-Chicago, the conference began in 2016 with approximately 30 participants and reaching almost 80 in 2018. In opposition to larger, more intimidating conferences, we aim to provide an affordable, accessible, collegial, collaborative, and interdisciplinary conference for scholars at all levels dedicated to exploring the questions and implications of space and place. We are particularly excited about participation from scholars doing work across disciplines, work that is new, and work that doesn’t seem to “fit” anywhere else.

  1. I am from Pakistan, and enthusiastic to be a part of this great conference as a presenter, can I present a paper via Skype???


    1. Thank you for your question! We are working closely with the technology department at Creighton to ensure that we will have the capabilities to host a number of presentation styles–including Skype.

      Individual and group proposals are due February 11, 2017 to youarehereconference@gmail.com. We hope you will consider submitting a proposal for the conference!

      Thank you for your interest!
