The Graduate Workshop of the Penn Interdisciplinary Program for Democracy, Citizenship and Constitutionalism is now calling for proposals for papers to present in the fall 2009 semester. This call is open to all graduate students at Penn and in the Philadelphia area.
These workshops are held monthly throughout the school year on Pennís campus and are designed to provide graduate students a chance to present their work to an interdisciplinary mix of students and faculty and get feedback on their research-in-progress. Papers are pre-circulated to attendees.
We are interested in bringing into dialogue a variety of scholars, approaches and themes, especially as related to this yearís topic of Sovereignty, Territoriality, and Plural Citizenships. Paper topics might include questions of identity, colonial discourses, diplomacy, nationalisms, postcolonial state formation, gender and citizenship, contests over and within national and territorial boundaries, and liberation movements.
Our focus is broad, and we invite graduate students in any department to apply. The presenters will be invited to participate in roundtables with scholars in the field and debate the themes for this year's workshop at the end of Spring, 2010. Papers may be included in an electronic publication of the Graduate Workshop of the Penn Program for Democracy, Citizenship and Constitutionalism.
If you are interested in presenting a paper, please send a provisional title and a short abstract (200 to 300 words) no later than Sept. 15th to PennDCC@gmail.com.
You can find the abstracts and papers from previous workshops on the DCC Graduate Workshop website:
