The University of Alabama’s Department of History invites single paper and panel proposals for the 4th Annual Race and Place Conference: Borderlands and Boundaries, to be held March 10-12, 2005 on the university’s campus in Tuscaloosa. The conference seeks to promote cutting-edge scholarship on the study of race and ethnicity, broadly defined, in a global context. We especially encourage papers examining how power and difference are imagined, configured, and contested, as well as critical explorations of collective cultural identities (including notions of race, ethnicity, nation, clan, lineage, family, and so forth) as these are created and negotiated across geographical, temporal, and ideological boundaries. Ideally, papers and panels will embrace a variety of theoretical and disciplinary perspectives beyond the narrowly historical. For more information, and examples of past Race and Place programs, please refer to our website (web address given below). Those interested in presenting a paper should submit a one-page abstract and a one-page c.v., by October 31, 2004, via mail or e-mail.
