We invite graduate students nationwide to submit proposals that engage the conference theme by examining power relations in all historical field and time periods. The conference theme focuses on the dynamic between power in personal, social, political, or institutional relationships and the struggle to break, transform, or reclaim the boundaries constructed by those in power. We seek proposals employing innovative approaches, interdisciplinary research, and critical theory. Particular attention will be given to papers developing comparative perspectives and utilizing multi-archival research .
Single paper submissions should include a 300-word abstract and a one-page CV of the presenter. Full-panel proposals should include a 150-word abstract detailing the theme of the panel as well as 300-word abstracts and CVs for each panelist. The deadline for abstract submission is November 15, 2008, via email in Word format to firstname.lastname@example.org .
