Historical Perspectives on Latin American Dictatorships
CFP: Graduate Student Conference, University of Maryland
October 13, 2004
"Historical Perspectives on Latin American Dictatorships," a graduate student conference sponsored by the University of Maryland's Department of History and the History Graduate Student Association, will take place in conjunction with the international symposium, "The Cultures of Dictatorship: Historical Reflections on the Brazilian Golpe of 1964," to be held October 14 -16, 2004. Both events, which include papers on topics regarding transnational influences of the Brazilian golpe, the development of social movements under a dictatorship, and discourses and ideologies of authoritarian rule, share the goal of understanding military dictatorships in Latin America from a historical perspective.
The one-day Graduate Student Conference will take place October 13 at the University of Maryland. The graduate student conference will include an opportunity to learn about the different resources available at the U.S. National Archives and Records Administration relating to the military period in Latin America. Students participating in the Graduate Student Conference will be invited to attend the Cultures of Dictatorship keynote and panels, including a special session to be held at Archives II.
We are accepting graduate student proposals for papers that examine the scope and development of Latin American dictatorships, c. 1964-1985, from a historical perspective. Paper presentations will be 20 minutes each. Professor James N. Green, keynote speaker for the three-day symposium, will be the commentator for the graduate conference. A final program for the conference will be available by 15 September 2004.

Gender and Dictatorships in Latin America
