XV AHILA INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE. LEIDEN (NETHERLANDS), 26-29 AUGUST 208.
CALL FOR PAPERS: SYMPOSIUM ON IMMIGRATION, XENOPHOBIA, AND NATION IN LATIN AMERICA, 1900-1940
The symposium seeks to address the problematic and conflictive relationship between immigration and the public policies designed to regulate and/or restrict the arrival and settlement of foreigners in Latin America, from the fin-de-siècle to the outbreak of World War II. We are interested in papers dealing with the origins and nature of the overseas immigration flows and the ensuing legal, political, and scientific engineering devised by the Latin American states to cope with the newcomers, as well as the different manifestations of social conflict that resulted from the encounter between natives and foreigners. Topics such as xenophobic and ethnic mobilization; the intertwinement of race, culture, and population policy, and the impact of ethnic-based scientific and disciplinary discourses will be given special attention.
Those interested in participating should send a paper proposal to the Symposium Chairs (see below) indicating the following:
A 200-250 word abstract clearly stating the subject and aims of the paper (please use Word, Times New Roman 12, double space)
The deadline for submitting the proposals is January 15th, 2008. Answers will be sent by January 30th, 2008.
