2019 Irc: resistance and renewal

GSA is pleased to announce the theme for this year’s graduate interdisciplinary research conference: Resistance and Renewal. We welcome submissions from all members of the UGA graduate and professional student community as we come together to discuss ways that we are resisting, revising, re-envisioning, reinvigorating, and renewing the paradigms of our disciplines and the practices of higher education.

The conference will be held on Saturday, February 23, 2019, in the Miller Learning Center. All graduate and professional students at the University of Georgia are invited to participate in this free conference event!

Have an experimental idea? We’d love to hear it! We are encouraging UGA graduate students to go beyond the usual paradigms at this year’s conference. While all traditional submissions will be welcome (e.g., papers, posters, and roundtables), we want this to be be an event in which graduate students inspire each other to take risks. Experimenting with dance? Have an improv idea? Dream of running a field experience or hands-on workshop? Want to test-run performances or exhibitions? IRC 2019 is for you! Click here to submit!

Have a departmental-level event that harmonizes with this year’s conference theme? Let us collaborate with you! GSA would love to build a series of departmental- and program-level events leading up to and following the conference. Contact us today (gsa@uga.edu) to see how we can help!

Submission deadline: December 31, 2018.

Notification of acceptance: January 7, 2019.

Online registration opens: January 7, 2019 and closes February 18, 2019.
