Liminal Positions Writing Symposium

EMILY CARR UNIVERSITY | LISA ROBERTSON | Liminal Positions Writing Symposium | MARCH 4-5

__________________________

ECUAD Biennial Student Symposium 2011:  READING | CULTURE | WRITING:  LIMINAL POSITIONS

FRIDAY MARCH 4, 6-8PM South Building #301,  RECEPTION 8PM Agro Cafe,

SATURDAY MARCH 5, 10:30AM-4:30PM, South Building #301.

This year’s conference seeks to gauge and engage the current state of Canadian

academic research across the fields of art, history, philosophy, critical + cultural studies. Presenting critical and creative explorations into the potentially rich contradictions inherent in criticizing culture while earnestly taking part in producing it.

Liminal Positions aims to provide a forum for the discussion of questions centered around the notion of in-betweenness. Asking where the “work” of art actually occurs and considering the role of the artist within commodity culture? Or conversely, how have cultural analysts approached writing or theorizing popular culture or current events?
