Instructional/Information Technology in CUNY: Opening Access
The escalating costs of higher education—both tuition and the collateral expenses of textbooks and course materials—have widespread effects. With the announcement of the Excelsior Scholarship and new funding to develop Open Educational Resources, CUNY is poised to ease financial barriers to college for even more students than we already serve. And yet “access” to higher education is a complex issue that extends far beyond the mere costs of attendance to adequately meeting student needs. “Access” includes ADA compliance, access to course materials and devices used for digital materials, Internet access, access to campus spaces and services, access to faculty and community, and more. CUNY’s 16th Annual IT Conference will examine the complex and evolving relationship between technology and manifold issues of access to higher education.

An Interdisciplinary Conference
October 27, 2017
Department of Comparative Literature
The Graduate Center, CUNY
New York, NY
While often conceived of as a mere edge, a periphery is, etymologically, a space that encircles and contains. Historically, this constitutive ambiguity has led to an impoverished notion of periphery in which what occurs on the edge has often been considered only secondarily. Such a subordination is the result of a centrifugal movement from a purportedly dominant center towards an allegedly chaotic outskirt, a periphery that becomes merely the receptacle of outcast entities: whether individuals, social groups, or cultural narratives at large. Continue reading Extended to Aug 31 | CPF – Peripheral Matters Graduate Conference

CFP: “A Duet with the Camera: Dance and the Still and Moving Image”
Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity, Alberta, October 12 – 15, 2017
Deadline: May 12, 2017
Universities Art Association of Canada
I feel strongly that film is related more closely to dance than to any other form because, like dance, it is conveyed in time. –Maya Deren
Filming and photographing moving bodies has altered how dance is choreographed, rehearsed, and staged for the camera. Critical debates surrounding the relation between dance and film have tended to revolve around notions of presence and liveness, and on the camera’s capacity to capture and express the ephemeral and visceral experience of live dance. This panel aims to investigate the ways in which artists, dancers, and filmmakers invite us to re-conceptualize the camera not as a recording device but as a stage which permits new articulations of the relationships between bodies in motion and technologies of representation through the use of various filmic and editing techniques. We are interested in proposals that examine collaborations between dancers, photographers and filmmakers, from early experiments during the silent film era and the collaborative initiatives of the historical avant-garde to the experimental film works of the Judson Dance Theatre, contemporary music videos and dance films. We also welcome papers that examine the theoretical underpinnings of dancing with the camera and the role of the spectator’s body in filmic performances. Continue reading Due May 12 | CFP: Session at UAAC (Banff, 12-15 Oct 17)
Graduate Center Early Research Initiative Fellowships in Interdisciplinary Research in the Service of Public Knowledge
The Carnegie Foundation initiative on doctoral education uses the label “steward” to convey a role for scholars that transcends accomplishments and skills: it has an ethical and political dimension. “Self-identifying as a steward,” Chris Golde of Stanford says, “implies adopting a sense of purpose that is larger than oneself” or one’s own discipline. Students and faculty at the Graduate Center have a rich history of conducting interdisciplinary work that seeks to enrich public knowledge and public discourse.
In the spirit of this history, the Early Research Initiative invites applications for new research fellowships for Summer 2017. These $4,000 fellowships will be offered to Graduate Center Ph.D. students from any program conducting research with a distinctive interdisciplinary turn whose main question is driven by public needs and priorities. The primary responsibilities of the award winners will be to produce a dissertation proposal or a dissertation chapter by September 2017 that will be showcased on the Provost’s website, as part of a new initiative in support of this theme.
