July 19-24, 2009
Mexico City, D.F., Mexico
Submit abstracts of approximately 500 words as email attachments to firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com.
Submission Deadline: January 15, 2008
This symposium solicits multidisciplinary paper proposals that utilize innovative methods and fresh sources to provide a new perspective on the meaning and experience of Peru's American Popular Revolutionary Alliance (APRA) during its formative era from the Student Congress of Cuzco (1920) until the imposition of the Odria dictatorship in late 1948. The objective of this symposium is to reassess the nature, influence, and multivocal meanings of APRA in terms of three understudied perspectives: 1. transnational 2. regional and 3. internal. The first will examine APRA's transnational network and the influence of its sections and cells outside of Peru. The second will illuminate APRA's development in diverse regional contexts and under distinctive conditions. The third will analyze the problematic construction of social and political identities and the complex dynamic between diverse social groups affiliated with APRA. The symposium is also keenly interested in papers that investigate APRA from the point of view of interlocking categories of difference (class, gender, race, generation). A subset of the papers presented at the symposium, following peer review, will be published in an edited volume.
