CfP: Beyond Boundaries: Recognition, Tolerance, Change

Australia’s response to the Syrian refugee crisis has raised issues in areas as diverse as immigration, religious tolerance and basic concepts of humanity. The 11th annual Limina conference seeks to uncover, explore and question both historical and contemporary boundaries that arise from people struggling for recognition.

We particularly invite papers that address boundaries that exist within, and between, academic disciplines and research themes. Topics include, but are not limited to:

• society, culture, politics
• racism, gender, sexuality
• identity – collective or individual
• geographical & bodily boundaries
• ethical, psycho-social, religious boundaries

The conference will be held at the University of Western Australia, Perth, Australia, on Friday 29th, July, 2016.

Please send:
• a title
• an abstract (approx. 250 words)
• a short biography (max. 100 words)
to with ‘Beyond Boundaries 2016’ in the subject line.
Themed panel submissions are welcome.

Abstracts must be submitted by the 13th, May, 2016; responses will be sent out by the 20th May, 2016.

We accept submissions from all researchers, and particularly encourage Post-Graduates and Early Career Researchers to submit. There will be the opportunity for presenters to have their papers published in a special edition of Limina (the journal is double blind peer-reviewed).
