The Annual Center for Research in the Humanities & Arts Graduate Students conference will be held at the campus of the University of California, Merced on April 12-13, 2013. From Monadism to Nomadism: A Hybrid Approach to Cultural Productions will focus on the intersection and interplay of cultural studies, the social sciences, and the humanities, encouraging the exploration of various theoretical frameworks, case studies and fieldwork, and research. The conference will explore constructed worlds in all their visual manifestations and encourages submissions that deal with the idea of a world that is not preexisting and fixed, but constructed, or in the process of creation.
The working languages are English and Spanish. There is no registration fee for this conference.

  1. Hi, Kim — Thanks for keeping me on your e-mail list. This first topic, especially, sounds interesting and timely, for one of the articles in this morning’s paper explained to me that in just a couple of years I will become a minority here in California. Already our conversations hereabouts are sprinkled with Spanish words and phrases.

    Have you ever heard “Spanglish” spoken? It’s a hoot, and I love it. Hoping you are the same, and with love and best wishes, Mary

  2. first of all congrats on your show.im just about to tune into this week’s show on the radio , i really love your guests.i will definitely recommend this show to my friends and family.thanks your time and energy.

  3. When Samantha Rogers read a statement from an 81-year-old woman transferred to CCWF, I just had to shake my head after I realized I hadn’t heard Samantha wrong – 81 one years old in prison?! When she visited a doctor, he said: “You’re old. You’re going to die anyway. You don’t need any tests.” That day, those at risk were paired with those with minimal risk – no strikes with one-two strikes – the goal Manuel La Fontaine, All of Us or None, stated to the Peace Keepers during their briefing was to make sure that everyone left at the end of the day. Bright pink armbands on to indicate their status, they kept us out of the street and interceded with the police when needed to keep the march safe and without incident. When night fell and the Liberation Brass Orchestra had played their last tune outside VSP again, Manuel was standing in the street directing foot traffic.

  5. Words are important. But on their own, they can fall flat. What we rely upon to convey meaning and to connect with one another includes body language, the speed and intonation of our words, and gesture. If a child doesn’t notice intonation, then she or he won’t really “get” the message. For kids on the spectrum, this is an issue; they miss the meaning, the paralinguistic or right brain not-worded parts of the message.

  6. Howdy! Someone in my Myspace group shared this site with us so I came to give it a look.
    I’m definitely enjoying the information. I’m book-marking and will be
    tweeting this to my followers! Wonderful blog and outstanding style and design.
