The Third Annual Atlantic Workshop,
University of Michigan and Michigan State University
May 4-5, 2007
The Atlantic Studies Workshop seeks papers from graduate students from multiple disciplines. Accepted papers will be presented at an interdisciplinary graduate student conference co-hosted by the University of Michigan and Michigan State University. Disciplines may include but are not limited to: African and African-American Studies, American Culture, Anthropology, Art and Art History, History, Law, Literature, Music, Sociology, and Women’s Studies.
The workshop aims to generate discussion on how recent research relates to major trends in scholarship and larger debates on the Atlantic. We therefore particularly seek submissions that expand or contest geographic and temporal delineations of the Atlantic as a scholarly field. The geographic scope of papers may include: Africa, Europe, North America, Latin America, and/or the Caribbean.
The deadline for applications is March 1, 2007. Papers will be pre-circulated to all participants. Applicants are therefore requested to submit a paper of approximately 15-25 pages for review by the application deadline. Applicants should also submit a C.V. Final versions of each presenter’s paper are due by April 10, 2007.
