2002 Conference at James Madison University. October 24-25, 2002.
To commemorate the 700th anniversary of Dante's exile from Florence, James Madison University is organizing a conference that will bring together scholars/researchers from a variety of disciplines to consider the impact that exile has had and still does have on humanity. For centuries men of letters, artists, scientists, philosophers, politicians, and entire populations have been forced into exile for reasons such as military occupation, religious intolerance, ethnicity, fear of difference, and others. We are inviting faculty, students, and independent scholars and researchers in fields such as English and foreign literatures, history, political science, art history, science, philosophy and religion, music, theater and dance, psychology, sociology, and others, to submit abstract/proposals, convene panel discussions and/or workshops.
Abstract should be no longer than 300 words. Deadline submission May 17, 2002.
