Call for Papers
FLUID
28th Annual Conference for the
Society for Literature, Science, and the Arts
October 9-12, 2014
Dallas, Texas

The concept of fluid in the arts, sciences, and humanities evokes multiple, overlapping definitions that work across and around the edges of disciplinary boundaries. Fluid can describe the property of flow, particles that move freely among themselves and that form and deform under pressure. It can refer to liquids both bodily and cultural, for example, blood and capital. It evokes anything that is not solid, fixed, or stable.

For this year’s conference, we encourage presentations, papers, and artworks that explore fluid as a word, idea, and process applied to borderlands, canvases (and other media in other art forms), philosophical indeterminacies, or dynamic systems, to offer a few suggestions. This is a deliberately expansive topic intended to appeal to a broad range of work in fields, including

bioarts
critical media theory
bioethics
medical humanities
new frontiers in digital media
animal studies
liminal studies
environmentalism and ecological studies
science and critical race studies
the history and philosophy of science
gender and/in science studies
rhetoric

This list is suggestive, not exhaustive. Other topics falling within the boundaries of SLSA work will also be welcome.

Abstracts of 150-250 words are due by April 30. Panel proposals must include full contact information for all panelists.
