Post-?: 2018 CGC Conference Call for Papers


CFP: Call for Papers, Panels, and research-creation works

Communications Graduate Caucus – Conference 2018
On the theme of “POST-?”
Richcraft Hall (formerly the River Building) at Carleton University, Ottawa, Canada
Dates: March 12 and 13, 2018

Deadline for submissions: January 5, 2018

Since long before Bruno Latour asked the question, “were we ever modern?”, notions of what comes after classifications like “nation”, “modern”, “truth”, and “discipline” have challenged us to consider how we construct an understanding of the ebb and flow of epistemologies and social movements. Taking a wide, critical look at issues ranging from post-modernism, post-nationalism, post-truth in communication and journalism, post-colonialism, post-feminism, post-racial, post-human, this year’s theme will invite scholarship that engages with what comes next. Are we really ever post-anything? Can Canadians so easily declare ourselves, as Prime Minister Trudeau recently stated, post-national? Is communication studies a field that truly represents a post-discipline?

The Communications Graduate Caucus of Carleton University welcomes individual papers, pre-constituted panels, and research-creation projects for our 13th annual conference on the theme of POST-?

We invite graduate researchers and emerging scholars from across Canada and abroad to present at this interdisciplinary gathering that will include diverse and engaging scholarship, networking and professional development opportunities, as well as eligibility for the Canadian Journal of Communication paper prize.

We will announce our exciting keynote speakers in December.

To submit an abstract, please follow the instructions below, and please note that we strongly encourage the submission of pre-constituted panels and research-creation or practice-led research proposals for this conference.

Research-creation (or practice-led research) is an approach to the process and presentation of research that includes creative production, artistic experimentation, and innovation in understanding and mobilizing knowledge. Feel free to contact us for more information about the possibilities.

Individual paper presenters should submit an abstract (in PDF, DOC or DOCX format) of 250 words. All submissions should also include your full name, your current academic affiliation, and your email address, and a short bio of 100 words or less.

Pre-constituted panels must include an abstract for the panel theme from the panel organizer AND abstracts for the individual papers. These MUST be included in a single document (.DOC, .DOCX, .PDF) submission.

Research-creation proposals must include a 250 word abstract, a short bio and any technical requirements needed for the presentation of the work.

All submissions should be sent to:

We look forward to hearing from you and welcoming you to Carleton.

All the best,

Lowell, Hailey, Stephanie
2018 Conference Co-Chairs
