Imagining America 2010 Call for Proposals


Imagining America: Artists and Scholars in Public Life
Eleventh Annual National Conference

Convergence Zones: Public Cultures and Translocal Practices
Seattle, Washington
23-25 September 2010

Conference Theme

Imagining America invites university affiliates (faculty, students, staff, and administrators) and community partners (individuals and organizations) to participate in our eleventh annual national conference, 23-25 September 2010, hosted by the University of Washington.  The theme of this year’s conference, Convergence Zones: Public Cultures and Translocal Practices, signals an exploration of how public scholarship creates new connections among disciplines, communities, and sectors.  As our work shuttles across institutional, geographical, and professional boundaries, our projects become zones of convergence where social interests, cultural practices, and new and old media intersect.  Animated by hybrid modes of participation and circulation, these convergence zones reshape our research, teaching, and engagement activities as they foster new projects, knowledge, and publics.
