CFP: EMERGENCE Symposium- 4th Dec 2014, Durham University

Kaleidoscope, Durham’s postgraduate interdisciplinary journal, is organising a symposium at Durham Castle on the 4th of December 2014

 

A key feature of Kaleidoscope is that it embodies and connects diverse subject areas in a single publication, whether in the Arts and Humanities, the Sciences, or the Social Sciences. This symposium is an excellent opportunity to communicate concepts and ideas to those in other fields.

The symposium is on the theme of ‘Emergence’. Suggestions include, but are not limited to:

  • Emergency, Tipping Points and Fragility
  • Emergence of Genre
  • Emergent Technology and Systems
  • Emergence, Novelty and Creativity
  • Emergent Organisations, Orders, Structures and Patterns
  • Emergence and Evolution

More information on possible approaches can be found at:

www.dur.ac.uk/ias/themes/emergence

For this one-day symposium, we are seeking papers from postgraduate students.  We welcome material of individual or collaborative work for presentations of 15 to 20 minutes. Lunch and refreshments provided.

Please send abstracts (max. 300 words) before 1st November 2014 to editor.kaleidoscope@durham.ac.uk.

Kaleidoscope will encourage and support speakers to submit articles developed from their presentations for publication in the next issue of the journal.

Enquiries should be sent to editor.kaleidoscope@durham.ac.uk
