The Center for the Critical Analysis of Contemporary Culture encourages and promotes interdisciplinary work. The Center will accept proposals from graduate students dealing with the discourses, narratives, symbols, concepts, and values of 'talking citizenship;'the substance, locations, and debates of defining citizenship; and the actions, practices, movements, status and standing of actual citizens in history.
Given the conference theme, papers that connect the theories and discours of citizenship with the empirical and historical practices of citizenship will be given special consideration.
Topics of particular interest include:
competing narratives of citizenship
possible changes in citizenship form national to transnational locations
links between citizen identity and citizen practice
citizenship as inclusion and exclusion
differences between 'talking citizenship' and 'doing citizenship'
Please send a proposal of no more than 300 words detailing your work and institutional affiliation. Proposals will be reviewed by a faculty reading committee. The conference will take place on April 2, 2004 at Rutgers University, NJ.
