Call for papers: Migration and Citizenship 1500 – 2000
Date of Conference: October 19, 2006
The History Department of the University of Texas at Arlington (UTA) and the Transatlantic History Student Organization (THSO) are sponsoring the Seventh Annual Graduate Student Symposium on Transatlantic History. Since 1999, this symposium has proved to be a venue for the discussion of comparative and transnational/transcultural character of the interrelations and interactions between peoples of the Atlantic World.
Since North and South America have been populated by migrants from Europe, Africa and Asia, millions of people have relocated to this “New World.” These migrants, arriving voluntarily or involuntarily on the new continent, brought with them their cultures, customs, and languages. Throughout the past these new citizens contributed to a distinctive merging of societies in North and South America. We invite papers that deal with the multitude of social, cultural, linguistic, economic, and political aspects of migration while incorporating definitions of citizenship. Students are encouraged to use a broad and imaginative interpretation of this topic.
Graduate students from history and other disciplines are invited to submit a 300-word abstract and abbreviated curriculum vitae by May 31, 2006. Authors of papers accepted for a 20-minute presentation will be notified by June 30, 2006. Selected participants will be awarded a small travel stipend to help offset expenses. Please e-mail your abstract to: Paul Rutschmann at firstname.lastname@example.org and Dr. Thomas Adam at email@example.com.
Note: Be sure to include your e-mail and regular mailing address to ensure that you can be reached during the summer of 2006.
