The Center for the Study of Citizenship at Wayne State University announces its first New Scholars Conference in Citizenship Studies. The conference will be held on February 27. Joan W. Scott, Professor of Social Science at the Institute for Advanced Studies, who will be the Center's first Distinguished Scholar-in-Residence, will serve as keynote speaker and commentator at the conference.
The conference will give junior faculty and advanced graduate students the opportunity to present their own work in citizenship studies. Please submit a one-page abstract of a paper proposal and a c.v. to the contact below at M.Kruman@wayne.edu by November 10. Proposals are welcome from scholars in all disciplines. Among the topics you might consider, are those that address aspects of Professor Scott's work. They include:
Gender and citizenship in the contemporary world
Postmodern theory and notions of civil society
The rights of man and woman in the ages of revolution (1775-1851, 1905-1917, colonial liberation movements)
Gender and the politics of the social sciences and humanities
Proposals that address all other aspects of citizenship studies are welcome.
