The aim of the Building Bridges Graduate Conference is to open up a space for interdisciplinary dialogue over a particular area of research. The focus of this year’s conference is on the topic of play. The hope is that by offering this space for graduate students to engage other disciplines’ deliberations on play, we may better understand its various forms, expressions, importance, roles, affectivity, complexities, and more! To this end, submissions from any and all disciplines are encouraged; including but certainly not limited to:
Africana Studies Political Science Education Gender & Sexuality Studies
Anthropology Art History Literature Speech Communication
Philosophy Asian Studies Economics Nonhuman Animal Studies
Sociology Virtual Reality Zoology Religious Studies
History Psychology Linguistics Marketing
