If the structure does not permit dialogue the structure must be changed

UnDisciplined is a graduate student conference for scholars whose modes of inquiry intersect the humanities, social sciences, sciences, technology, activisim, and the arts. It is a space for sharing scholarly, artistic, and/or activist work that theorizes or reveals forces that shape human experiences. We invite scholars and artists whose work breaks down conventional divisions between disciplines, academia and activism, as well as theoretical critique and cultural production. As such, UnDisciplined brings together researchers focused on areas and fields, rather than disciplines and traditions, embracing research that poses problems, creates dialogue, and questions the disciplining of thought in academia.


We invite submissions that transcend or crack disciplinary boundaries in theory and method, abstraction and enactment, so as to challenge, transform and illuminate the world around us. Thus, there are no thematic restrictions to the range of topics that could be presented. For this year’s conference, we are accepting graduate work in the form of scholarly presentations and papers, performances, book talks, workshops, and creative research projects (i.e. research-creation, or practice-based research). 


Applications are open until January 17th, 2020. Detailed instructions on how to apply, and a link to the application portal, can be found at
