Conference for graduate students in the Humanities and Social Sciences. Organized by the history department of the University of Nevada, Reno. February 10-11, 2006.
Social identity exists in a cultural context with chronological, geographic and linguistic dimensions. By examining the interaction of such factors in different historical times and spaces, scholarship can shed light on the ways in which cultural identities are constituted and reaffirmed. This conference adopts a case-study approach to cultural identity, and brings scholars of diverse interests together to engage with each other’s perspectives. It also seeks to provide emerging scholars a forum for presenting their original research.
The conference will begin Friday afternoon on February 10th, with a reception on Friday evening. Most of the panels will take place on Saturday. Participants from out of town may receive accommodation, pending funding, but unfortunately no transportation expenses can be reimbursed. We welcome both complete panels and free-standing papers from graduate students in History, Anthropology, Sociology, Ethnic or Area Studies, English, Language programs, or other disciplines.
All those interested in participating should send a brief CV and a 400 word abstract of their proposed talk by December 15. Send this information the text of an email (not as an email attachment), with “graduate student conference” in the subject line, to Alexander Maxwell, History Department, University of Nevada Reno firstname.lastname@example.org.
