The graduate students of the Department of Languages and Literature at the University of Utah invite you to Confutati, a multidisciplinary conference that will take place on February 5th and 6th, 2016.

 #Culture aims to trace the impact of our ever changing media and its effect on contemporary discourse and self-representation. The hashtag used in popular social media has become a signal of both humor and political impetus that has thus redefined the scope of popular culture. In a world of β€œselfies,” β€œautocorrect,” and β€œemojis,” how has the nature of discourse and representation been liberated or limited? In what realm of representation(s) do we find ourselves? Cultural legitimation, subjectivity, and identity are called into question in our understanding of #culture.
