Keynote Speaker: Immanuel Wallerstein
Power, its uses and effects, has been a driving historical force. Power is not limited to fields of battle and politics; rather, it affects every facet of human experience. We are seeking original interpretations concerning the nature of power, types of control, avenues of resistance and the relationship between dominance and subservience.
This conference has a multidisciplinary approach. We welcome papers and presentations from all fields and disciplines. Proposals for panels are also encouraged.
Previous panels included: Power within the Family Structure; Racial, Class, and Gender Spheres; Economic Systems; the Nation State and the Global System; and the Negotiation, Resistance, Contestation, and the Exercise of Power.
Please submit one-page abstract and brief curriculum vitae by September 15, 2005. If selected, a final paper, approximately 10 pages, (allow for a 15 minute presentation) must be submitted by October 10, 2005.
A $200 prize will be awarded to the best paper presented during the conference.
