The Latin American and Caribbean Studies Center of the State University of New York at Stony Brook presents
New Directions in Latin American and Caribbean Studies
A Multi-disciplinary Graduate Student Conference
Friday, April 25th, 2003
This one-day student-run conference seeks to bring together scholars and researchers of Latin America and the Caribbean to promote dialogue across a variety of disciplines. 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.
Some of the panels envisioned include (but are not limited to):
Reading the Americas
Popular Culture and Film
Representations of Ethnicity/Race, Sexuality and Class
Intellectual and Social Movements
We are open to any papers focusing on Latin American and Caribbean history, literature, culture, society, politics or economics.
For more information, please email to address below.
Abstracts (300 words) due January 24th, 2003.
Presentations should not exceed 15-20 minutes.
Please send abstracts via email with the subject: Graduate Conference
