The American Studies Graduate Student Committee invites proposals for our 2003 conference, “America: Visions and Divisions.” This conference is designed to promote an exchange of ideas, in academic form, on any topic relating to the past or present culture of North America and how these cultures have been shaped through various representations and/or misrepresentations.
As interdisciplinary work is at the core of American Studies, we encourage different methodological approaches and invite submissions from a variety of disciplinary perspectives, including but not limited to: African and African American Studies, American Studies, Anthropology, Architecture and Urban Planning, Art and Art History, Asian and Asian American Studies, Communication Studies, English, Education, History, Geography, Government, Journalism, Latin American Studies, Law, Mexican American Studies, Music, Philosophy, Public Affairs, Queer Studies, Radio-Television-Film, Religious Studies, and Rhetoric.
Both individual papers and organized panels are welcome, although we highly encourage the submission of organized panels. All panels will have moderators. To help off-set the costs of the conference, there will be a $10 registration fee required for those individuals selected to participate in the conference that will be due with an acceptance form. A limited number of waivers will be available for participants unable to cover the fee.
To Propose a Paper: please submit a cover page with your name, address, phone number, and email address at which you can be reached during the summer; a one page abstract of the paper; and any requests for A/V equipment.
To Propose a Panel: please submit one cover page with names, addresses, phone numbers, and email addresses at which panelists can be reached during the summer; a one-page abstract for each paper; a one-page abstract of the panel that states its theme and purpose; the name and information for a proposed moderator (optional); and any requests for A/V equipment.
All submissions are due June 15, 2003.
Conference Date: October 3, 2003.
