When we recognize that something is in process, how do we negotiate the currents of its past, immediate, and potential states? When we speak of the process in scholarship, we are discerning what Levi Bryant refers to as the “entanglements” of its components and how they influence one another. As the academy increasingly resembles the experimental sandbox, we find ourselves with opportunities to jump in, get dirty, and extract these relationships.

The 2016 Midwest Interdisciplinary Graduate Conference (MIGC), February 19-20, will host a series of events that will help us pause, extract, and dissect the “entanglements” that comprise the uncertain terrain of the Process, focusing on the various processes that move, compose, and become the world in an effort to open new opportunities to reveal new perspectives.

Keynote: Levi Bryant (Collin College) | Workshop: Nick Montfort (MIT) | Artist: Jon Satrom

C21's Landbody conference, which takes place May 5-7, 2016, considers the implications of Native ontologies and epistemologies, emphasizing the animate, living nature of place and the conceptual primacy of connection and locale.

Despite colonial incursions, Native communities continue tribal lifeways, constructing and reconstructing systems of reciprocal survival in regions and localized spaces throughout lands and other spaces occupied by and contested by colonial powers and people. Place is not a neutral backdrop. An ontological connection to a specific land comprises a central component of indigenous being, a commitment to place contrary to current celebrations of migration, individualism, and cosmopolitanism.

Plenary speakers include Jennifer Nez Denetdale, Jolene Rickard, Audra Simpson, Kim TallBear, and Gerald Vizenor.
