Contrasts & Commonalities: Expanding Perspectives Through Comparative Study
The 2009 James A. Rawley Graduate Conference in the Humanities (March 27-28, 2009) at the University of Nebraska, Lincoln, seeks to foster new comparative scholarship that explores structural, cultural, and intellectual elements of human expression and experience -- unveiling common patterns and explaining differences.
The Rawley Conference is an annual event affording graduate students and advanced undergraduates in the Humanities the opportunity to present their research in an environment modeled on professional conferences.
Dr. Sterling Evans, Associate Professor and Canada Research Chair in History at Brandon University, Brandon, Manitoba, Canada; incoming (2009) Louise Welsh Chair in Southern Plains and Borderlands History, University of Oklahoma, will deliver the keynote address: "Nothing New about NAFTA: The Great Plains and North American Connections."
The 2009 Rawley Conference accepts individual proposals as well as panel submissions. Individuals should send a 250 word abstract and copy of curriculum vitae. Panel submissions should include vitae and abstracts for each participant (please designate a contact person.)
Traditional paper and panel proposals are welcome, but round-tables, multi-media presentations, exhibition plans, digital projects, and other creative expressions of humanities scholarship are also encouraged.
The abstract submission deadline is January 15, 2009.
Final papers are due March 10, 2009.
