Midwest Interdisciplinary Graduate Conference

The Midwest Interdisciplinary Graduate Conference (MIGC) supports the sharing and collaboration of national and international graduate student research and art across the disciplines. The conference is organized entirely by graduate students, who collectively decide on annual themes that reflect current theoretical debates and trends across the humanities, sciences, and the arts.

This year’s theme is UNBEARABLE and features keynotes Lee Edelman (Tufts) and Lauren Berlant (Chicago), co-authors of Sex, or the Unbearable. MIGC also welcomes and screens the work of filmmaker Malic Amalya (California College of the Arts) at our creative showcase event at Microlights Friday, February 20th, at 7 p.m.

MIGC is generously supported by The Center for 21st Century Studies, The Graduate School, The College of Letters and Sciences, The Office of Research, The Division of Student Affairs, The Vilas Trust, The Department of English, The Year of the Humanities, and the Milwaukee LGBT Film/Video Festival.

The tenth annual conference will be at UWM on Friday and Saturday, February 20th and 21st. For more information about the conference and its events, visit the MIGC website.
