The Communication & Culture Graduate Students' Association (ComCultGSA) represents all students registered in the Joint Graduate Program both at York and Ryerson Universities. The ComCultGSA meets directly with program administrators, has representatives in student unions and governing bodies, provides a forum to discuss issues and creates a meeting place for students to get to know each other. If you value the initiatives that the ComCult GSA undertakes or feel strongly about changing aspects of the program, please consider participating. Whether you are highly motivated or strapped for time, we have a position for you! The ComCultGSA council and Committee Chairs are elected each September after incoming students have been oriented. For more details please visit our website.
Intersections|Cross-sections Graduate Conference & Art Exhibition
Since 2002, ComCult graduate students together with the ComCultGSA have organized the annual Intersections|Cross-sections Graduate Conference & Art Exhibition. While the annual conference theme changes, the topics generally reflect the nature of our program and the work it nurtures. As scholars doing interdisciplinary work in a joint program, we are especially interested in encountering and generating significant intersections of art, activism and academia. The conference reviews proposals for papers, creative works, media submissions and poster presentations. Intersections|Cross-sections is held each spring, and submissions are generally due by January.
