March 4th and March 5th, 2016

Keynote: Dr. Sandy Stone

Theme: The Humanities and Social Justice

Submission Deadline: December 18th, 2015

The Arts & Humanities Graduate Student Association of the University of Texas at Dallas will hold its eighth annual RAW: Research, Art, Writing Graduate Symposium on March 4th and 5th at the UT Dallas campus in Richardson, TX. Organized by and for graduate students, RAW offers students from around the country the opportunity to share their work and ideas with peers across the humanistic disciplines.

Despite a growing rhetoric to the contrary, the humanities have never been more important. The perpetuation of systemic oppressions—poverty, anti-gay violence and legislation, sexism, police brutality, racism, and militarization—has generated social unrest throughout the world. The theme of this year’s RAW, “The Humanities and Social Justice,” focuses on scholarly efforts in all humanities-related fields to address the institutional marginalizations that have inspired activist movements. RAW is dedicated to amplifying the voices of all graduate students within the humanities; regardless of the theme, we will accept papers or panels from any academic focus or discipline as long as it connects with the humanities.

This year we are proud to welcome Dr. Sandy Stone as our keynote speaker. For over thirty years, Dr. Stone’s writings on critical theory and media, along with art that conceptualizes the relationship between technology and identity, have combined the intense rigor of academic work with an investment in the lives and well-being of marginalized people. In 1979, her foundational text, “The Empire Strikes Back: A Post-Transsexual Manifesto,” helped create space for Transgendered Studies and other academic fields of inquiry dedicated to exploring the realities of marginalized groups from their own perspectives. The founding director of the ACTLab at the University of Texas at Austin, Dr. Stone exemplifies the interdisciplinary spirit at the heart of the A&H program at UT Dallas and the RAW Graduate Symposium.

Each interested participant may submit one 200-word abstract for a 15-minute individual presentation and/or one submission of a full panel that includes three to four individual presentations. There are no limitations on topic, field, genre, or methodology.

Submissions may include, but are not limited to:

  • excerpt of an M.A. paper or thesis
  • excerpt of a seminar paper
  • excerpt from a dissertation
  • animation, video, or film projects
  • excerpt from a novel, play, or short story
  • M.F.A. final project
  • selection of poetry
  • dance or other performance piece
  • art work (paintings, ceramics, drawings, etc.)
  • games

Proposals are due by December 18, 2015. All proposals must include the following:

  • A complete mailing address, e-mail address, phone number, field, and affiliation of participant
  • An abstract of no more than 200 words for the proposed presentation that includes 3 to 5 keywords

March 6th and 7th, 2015

Keynote: Sophia Roosth, Assistant Professor in the History of Science at Harvard University

Theme: Public Scholarship

Submission Deadline: December 6th, 2014

 

The Arts & Humanities Graduate Student Association of the University of Texas at Dallas will hold its seventh annual RAW: Research, Art, Writing Graduate Symposium on March 6th and 7th at the UT Dallas campus in Richardson, TX. Organized by and for graduate students, RAW’s goal is to continue to expand the scope of the humanities to all those interested.

 

In its seventh year, the RAW Symposium continues to promote the humanities as a shared space for thinkers of all disciplines. Accordingly, the theme for this year’s RAW is public scholarship. Public scholarship strives to advance intellectual and creative pursuits beyond the academy and the gallery, into public spaces and conversations. Exemplary public scholarship includes the work of thinkers like Ayaan Hirsi Ali, Gore Vidal, Melissa Harris Perry, Carl Sagan, Camille Paglia, Edward Said, Doris Kearns Goodwin, and Neil deGrasse Tyson.

 

RAW welcomes papers, presentations, works of art, and performances from every discipline as long as they reflect the fundamental concerns of the humanities. We are interested in works ranging from the examination of German Romanticism through a social-sciences lens to the exploration of Star Trek from the perspective of theoretical physics.

 

Interested participants may submit 200-word abstracts for 15-minute individual presentations of papers from across the academic spectrum: art, biology, film, physics, photography, computer sciences, sculpture, environmental sciences, games, etc., as well as submissions of full panels that may include three to four individual presentations. There are no limitations on field, genre, or methodology, as long as the presentation is inclusive and demystifying and holds the humanities close to its metaphorical heart.

 

Submissions may include, but are not limited to:

  • excerpt of an M.A. paper or thesis
  • excerpt of a seminar paper
  • excerpt from a dissertation
  • animation, video, or film projects
  • excerpt from a novel, play or short story
  • M.F.A. final project
  • selection of poetry
  • dance or other performance piece
  • art work (paintings, ceramics, drawings, etc.)
  • games

Proposals are due by December 6, 2014. All proposals must include the following:

  • A complete mailing address, e-mail address, phone number, field, and affiliation of participant
  • An abstract of no more than 200 words for the proposed presentation that includes 3 to 5 keywords
  • For creative pieces: please also include medium, space requirements for the work/presentation,

Panel proposals must include the above information for each participant.
