Call for papers
Ciudad Juárez, Chih., Mexico, October 19, 20 and 21, 2005 Since 1989 over two hundred historians and social scientists have come from all over the world to Ciudad Juárez to participate in the International Congress of Regional History, a bi - annual event organized by the Universidad Autónoma de Ciudad Juárez. The organizing committee invites all scholars to participate in the X International Congress of Regional History to be held in the university’s Centro de Convenciones (on the corner of Hermanos Escobar and Plutarco Elías Calles) between 19- 21 of October, 2005 to present the results of their latest research and participate in a broad ranging academic discussion of the major issues facing Regional History and such related fields as Frontier Studies, Regional Studies, Women Studies, Ethnic Studies, Economic Development, Archaeology, Business History, Cultural Studies and Art History.
The International Congress of Regional History has consistently provided an open forum for interdisciplinary discussions that have provided new approaches to the different sub fields of Regional History. As a result, for more than a decade and a half the Congress has become a key reference point for those wishing to study the different aspects of inter – and intra – regional variability.
