Departments and units across UGA are collaborating on a half-day conference to expand interdisciplinary research collaboration on issues of media, communication, culture and representation. “Making Ends Meet: Interpretive/Critical Research across the University on Media, Communication, Culture and Representation” will be held March 26 from 9 a.m.-1:30 p.m. at the Tate Student Center.
Instead of complete papers or formal research presentations, sessions will be built around problems/phenomena related to the theme of the conference. Those whose proposals are accepted will be expected to facilitate an open-ended group discussion.
Registration is free, but limited to graduate students, and comes with free breakfast, coffee/tea breaks and lunch, as well as a notebook and other conference materials. Registration is available online at www.memconference.wordpress.com/ until March 12, or until the limit of 50 participants is reached.
