“In effect, we live in a legal, social, and institutional world where the only relations possible are extremely few, extremely simplified, and extremely poor. There is, of course, the relation of marriage, and the relations of family, but how many other relations should exist…!” -Michel Foucault

Inviting graduate students and recent PhDs from across the humanities and the social sciences to submit presentation proposals for an interdisciplinary conference at Cornell University on April 1–2, 2011. We especially welcome submissions from scholars in: historical musicology, ethnomusicology, anthropology, theater and performance studies, film and media studies, cultural studies, women’s, gender, and queer studies, comparative literature, area studies, political studies, and sociology. The conference features three keynote talks by internationally renowned scholars, a film screening, a concert performance, a roundtable discussion, and a seminar.
