University of Maryland – College Park
The Second Latin American and the Caribbean Graduate Conference, organized by the Latin American Studies Center (LASC) at the University of Maryland - College Park is an interdisciplinary space for students working on Latin America and the Caribbean. The second conference will provide students with the opportunity to present papers, current projects, dissertations, develop presentational skills, exchange ideas and information, and create an space to meet other students and professors. This year the conference welcomes graduate students from the DC, Maryland, and Virginia area.
The Second Latin American and the Caribbean Graduate Conference, organized by the Latin American Student Center (LASC) invites students to submit for acceptance a single-page abstract of a paper, dissertation, current project or work in progress within the field of Latin American Studies. The abstract should include the geographic/thematic area of research as well as the temporal frame. This information will enable us to select papers and organize panels for the conference. The final deadline for submission of abstracts is March 24, 2006. Final notices of acceptance will be e-mailed by April 14, 2006. Students invited to participate will have until April 20, 2006, to submit final presentations or substantial outlines in the case of work in progress. During the conference, each student will be assigned in a panel arranged around a common theme and presentation should not exceed 15 minutes each.
In order to facilitate the selection process submission for abstracts will be online: http://www.lasc.umd.edu/IIGradConf/FormIIGC.htm
Since the Conference will gather students from different disciplines we strongly recommend avoiding discipline-specific jargon as well as addressing the way in which the research or work in progress dialogue within your area of study. Please, explain in what ways your work addresses current concerns in Latin American and the Caribbean either within academia or outside.
