Intellectual Intersections: 

A Multidisciplinary Graduate Student Conference

Friday, January 29th, 2010

 Northern Arizona University's du Bois Conference Center

Academic disciplines often push practitioners to divide the world into discrete categories. Category labels not only tell the researcher and the reader what constitutes a particular object of study, they delimit the boundaries of a discipline. This orthodoxy faces a counter-history that rejects sharp divisions, either on a disciplinary or a categorical level. As a result, cleavages between disciplines such as sociology, history, economics, and political science, are now under attack. This conference seeks to build upon these critiques by examining the middle ground between theoretical, ontological, epistemic, disciplinary, and methodological spaces in all academic disciplines.

This conference is designed to be inclusive. Graduate students from all academic disciplines are encouraged to participate.

We look forward to meeting you.


This conference is organized by the Northern Arizona University Graduate Association of Political Science Students (GAPS). Sponsors include the Office of the Vice President for Research, the Office of the Provost,  The Graduate College, College of Social and Behavioral Sciences, College of Education, School of Forestry,  the Department of Politics & International Affairs, Womens and Gender Studies, Ethnic Studies Program, Department of Criminology & Criminal Justice, Department of Geography, Planning and Recreation, Department of Sociology and the Student Activities Council.
