Graduate students in the Department of Sociology at Binghamton University are pleased to announce the upcoming "Graduate Student Conference in Historical Social Science" to be held on April 29 - May 1, 2005 at Binghamton University.
The keynote speech will be delivered by Prof. Giovanni Arrighi, Professor and Chair of the Department of Sociology at Johns Hopkins University. He will be speaking on "The Strange Death of the Globalization Project."
While this conference is intended to bring together a wide range of graduate students in the general field of historical sociology, students from other disciplines within the social sciences are also strongly encouraged to participate. The Conference is designed to provide opportunities for graduate students from various institutions to establish contact and share ideas with each other, and create networks to conduct a large-scale collaborative historically-grounded study.
We would also like to emphasize the global character of our conference. In this sense, we encourage submissions from students of all historical periods and/or all parts of the world. We welcome applications for the proposed panels including, but not limited to:
Historical / Global capitalism
Crisis and the politics of the late modern world-system
Social movements / anti-systemic movements
The production of knowledge
State regulation, institutions of global governance
Comparative Hegemonies / Empire
Multiple modernities and cultural forms of Modernity
Colonialism and nationalism in Historical perspective
Food and agriculture systems
Students interested in participating should send their title and abstracts (not exceeding 300 words), as well as scholarly affiliation, address, fax number and email address, to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than February 20, 2005.
Decisions concerning the acceptance of papers will be made by March 7, 2005.
