19th Southwest English Symposium: Hybridity
Friday-Saturday, Feb. 28-Mar. 1
English Liberal Arts and Sciences
Arizona State University, Tempe Campus
Graduate students and junior faculty present research at this annual conference sponsored by the Graduate Scholars of English Association (GSEA). The theme for this year’s interdisciplinary SWES conference is Hybridity; its attractions, distractions, contradictions and complications.
Definition: Hybridity is a capacious term used across disciplines to signal different kinds of mixing, mutating, and collaborating. The word calls to mind an in-between space in which heterogeneous elements can interact, whether they be different cultures, technologies, languages, or species. Of particular interest are presentations that encourage audience participation and discussion, and contribute closely to the conference theme and to questions concerning aspects of the following:
Hybridity in the humanities: Historicism, humanism, trans-humanism, literary criticism, postmodernism, intertextuality, film studies
Hybridity and literacy: English as a Second Language, cross-culturalism, multiple literacies
Hybridity and academia: Interdisciplinary and trans-disciplinary studies, hybrid epistemologies, ontologies
Hybridity and identity: Gender studies, race studies, post-colonialism, border studies, monster theory
Hybridity and technology: Cybernetics/cyborgs, emerging technologies, game theory, digital humanities
Hybridity and the internet: Mash-ups, re-mixes, blogging, wikis, Creative Commons, hypertext
Hybridity and teaching: Multimodal and multimedia pedagogies, English for Special Purposes, Writing in the Disciplines, hybrid classroom, plagiarism
Hybridity and environment: Sustainability; animal-human relationships, ecocriticism, ecofeminism.

Call for Papers:
This conference welcomes 250-500 word abstracts for sessions, panels, and/or roundtable proposals from graduate students, postgraduates and early career scholars. Because the theme of the conference is inclusive and interdisciplinary, it provides focus for a dialogue while encouraging the creative connections across several areas of graduate student scholarship. Creative pieces will be accepted if they are accompanied by an explanation of how the work contributes to the conference theme.
