Call for Papers | Interdisciplinary Graduate Student Conference – "Mosaics: Difference, Diversity, Assemblage"

The French and Italian Graduate Student Organization would like to invite interested Pitt graduate students and advanced undergraduates to submit proposals of contributions for their upcoming interdisciplinary graduate student conference “Mosaics: Diversity, Difference and Assemblage,” to be held February 24, 2017.

The conference keynote speaker will be Dr. Alison James of the University of Chicago.
