Description

2019 Critical Edge Alliance Conference


Boundary Crossings in Culture, Power, and Experience: Re-imagining Higher Education

The annual Critical Edge Alliance conference will take place at The New School in New York, NY on June 7-8, 2019 with an additional opening reception/collaboration workshop on June 6, 4:00-8:00pm.

The purpose of the conference is to explore contemporary issues around boundary crossing, as they relate to universities and learning, broadly conceived.​

This conference is dedicated to the memory of our colleague Professor L.H.M. “Lily” Ling, a founding member of the Critical Edge Alliance, who tragically passed away last year. The conference is designed in the spirit of Ling’s Silk Road Research Initiative, a research collective that pursued the re-imagination of world politics.


Registration


The conference fee is $90 USD for faculty and administrators and $60 USD for students. Everyone with an accepted submission is asked to pay this fee to help offset some of the costs of the conference for the host university. The fee is kept as low as possible, and includes coffee, meals, and receptions during the conference.

All travel and accommodation costs are at participants’ own expense.
