Hello – we are seeking a fourth panelist for a Graduate Conference to be held at the University of Massachusetts Amherst on 30 April 2005. The conference is entitled
“OUR RESEARCH MATTERS: NEW DIALOGUES ON LATIN AMERICA, THE CARIBBEAN AND LATINO STUDIES”
Panel and submission information follows:
Transcending Space and Time: Approaching Latin America and the Caribbean through Art & Performance
This panel seeks novel approaches to the self, identity and community in Latin American and Caribbean studies. Taking art and performance as points of entry to local/ global culture, we propose a reanalysis of traditional scholarship, grounded in expressive approaches to research and representation. Linking memory and the senses, we examine the melding of past and present in creative processes and products. Our research situates the construction of self and social world in imagined sites that transcend the bounds of space and time, in an effort to expand anthropological and historical inquiry.
Please submit 200-word abstract to Carolyn Merritt firstname.lastname@example.org or Sohnya Castore email@example.com or Donna Jackson (e-mail address provided below)
by 11 March 2005.
