The Latin American and Caribbean Studies Center
of the State University of New York at Stony Brook
Refiguring the Americas: Disciplines, Genres, Histories
A Multi-disciplinary Graduate Student Conference
Friday, April 19th, 2002
This conference seeks to bring together scholars and researchers of Latin America and the Caribbean to promote dialogue across a variety of disciplines. In an era of the war on drugs, NAFTA, Vicente Fox and Ricky Martin, the goal is to consider from many sides and many positions the past, present and future of the Americas. Particular emphasis will be placed on panels that break down disciplinary and geographic boundaries in order to examine the unities and ruptures within the Americas. We welcome both presentation of new research as well as meditation on the methodological and theoretical underpinnings of past and future research.
Abstracts and papers are welcome in English, Spanish, Portuguese or French.
