From March 23-27, 2010, SCOLAS will hold its annual conference, in Santa Fe, NM. The 2010 conference theme is “Rediscovering the Americas in a “Post-American (?) World.” SCOLAS welcomes proposals for individual papers and whole panels from across the academic disciplines. Submission forms are located on our website: www.baylor.edu/scolas/scolas 2010 conference. Deadline for receiving proposals is 31 October 2009.
As most of us are experiencing personally and professionally, the global economic crisis has tremendous potential to rearrange “truths,” not to mention retirement plans. Books forecasting a “Post-American World” have spent months on national best-sellers’ lists. If such change were realized, it has the potential to affect multiple relationships, including among the states of the Americas. Given existing economic, cultural, social and political ties among these countries, we hope Santa Fe conference participants will consider what historical alterations economic, social and state relations have meant in past cycles, as well as what current transformations may mean, for the people, cultures, governments and economies of the Americas. This affects us across many dimensions, and we welcome proposals that are equally varied, across the disciplines.
