Community Intersections

The Institute for the Humanities Graduate Student Caucus


Community Intersections


The Institute for the Humanities Graduate Student Caucus (UMIH-GSC) is inviting students to submit work to an e-journal that deals with questions of community: the boundaries and limits of community, the many ways community is formed, and the intersecting points of communities.

A wide range of topics is welcome, though we are primarily interested in those papers that approach questions of community from a humanities perspective.
This includes, but is not limited to, discussions of:

Global perspectives on community
Trans-cultural communities
Virtual or tele-visual communities
Urban and community development
Fractured, disrupted, or displaced communities
Mobile communities
Religious, historic, and political communities
Experimental or activist communities
Community and law
Community and Economy
The futures of community

Those students whose work is accepted will be invited to present their work (whether completed or in draft form) at an interdisciplinary workshop on February 24 & 25, 2011. This workshop is an opportunity for students to receive feedback from
graduate students in a variety of disciplines and to learn how to address
their work to an interdisciplinary audience.

Please send an abstract (maximum 300 words) plus relevant contact information and a short biography including your level of study to by
January 15, 2011. Include “Graduate Journal” in the subject line.
