California State University Stanislaus will host a third conference on Empire in March 2008, this time exploring Migrations, Diasporas, and Networks.
Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, 13-15 March 2008.
We seek papers, panels, workshops, and artistic works that examine the connections/disconnections between enactments and perceptions of empire with migrations, diasporas and/or networks. We hope that participants will address the issues of empire from antiquity to postmodernity, on every continent and from many cultures. We also hope to look at a variety of empires such as national, media, corporate, and technological. To situate these topics in as broad a context as possible, we seek presentations by scholars working in such disciplines as Anthropology, Architecture & Art History, Humanities and Social Sciences, Computing, Economics, Education, Ethnic & Gender Studies, Film Studies, Geography, History, Literature, New Media, Philosophy, Politics & Public Policy, and the Natural and Physical Sciences.
