The 9th Annual University of Rhode Island Graduate Student Conference
Kingston, RI Campus

Saturday April 18, 2015

The URI Graduate Conference gives graduate students the opportunity to present their research or clinical work while receiving interdisciplinary feedback from, and networking with, peers and faculty. We invite proposals for paper and poster presentations, strongly encouraging submissions from across all disciplines. We also consider proposals that extend beyond this yearâ??s theme:

â??Interconnections: Patterns, Pathways & Possibilitiesâ?

Interconnections are the points at which two or more things are conjoined in mutual exchange; they constitute spaces as between, among, or amid. The liminal space of interconnections asks us to integrate, tolerate, appreciate, and celebrate uncertainty. It is here that we account for complexity, find fresh new approaches to familiar problems, and rejuvenate overly constrained thinking. Through the lens of interdisciplinarity, we can focus upon unnoticed patterns, find new productive pathways forward, and discover the rich new possibilities that flourish. Interdisciplinarity invites us to negotiate between the disciplinesâ?? diverse methods, assumptions, and values.

Inviting submissions from all fields and disciplines, such as, but not limited to:

Humanities: History, Linguistics, Literature & Literary Studies, Arts, Philosophy, Religious Studies, Film and Media Studies, etc.

Social Sciences: Anthropology, Archaeology, Area Studies, Cultural and Ethnic Studies, Economics, Gender and Sexuality, Geography, Political Science, Psychology, Sociology, etc.

Natural Sciences: Space Sciences, Earth Sciences, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, etc.
