The 2008 New Voices Conference provides a space for exploring the current transitioning evident in the disciplines. A transitional moment is one of reflexivity, confusion, evaluation, clumsiness, an embracing of the new, and a questioning of the foundations and traditions—epistemological, ontological, professional, political, artistic—that support our current state of being. We often transition through traditions by expanding and building on our foundations, but when we question those foundations, the traditions themselves become sites of transitioning.
