Dates: 18th and 19th of February 2010
Venue: Carrefour de l'information, Université de Sherbrooke
Theme: Cultures and Power
It's with great pleasure that we invite you to submit conference proposals for the 3rd edition of the history student conference with the theme "Cultures and Power". One of our objectives this year is to welcome graduate students in history as well as students in other disciplines within the social sciences and humanities community (litterature, politics, anthropology, etc.) Our goal is to
open historical research to other disciplines complementary to history.
The theme "Cultures and Power" is vast enough to incorporate a number of disciplines in social sciences, humanities and others. It also raises questions from a historical as well as contemporary point of view. Culture can be defined as a series of practices, ideologies, sense of being, of representing oneself or others and the environnement. Your paper may present the numerous interactions between one - or many - cultures, whether mass or marginal, with the religious, political, and economic powers as well as their manifestations : social status or dominant social groups, power struggles, marginality or social conflicts. The theme selection is open to a variety of topics: discourse, social or religious practices, representations, identities. Other perspectives can also be proposed.
The conference proposals must include :
- the preliminary title of your presentation, a 250 word summary (including your thesis topic and the main ideas that will be developped)
- Your full contact information indicating your university, your field of study and your current level (undergraduate, master's or doctoral student)
Please submit your conference proposal before December 5th 2009 at the following adress :
firstname.lastname@example.org. Please write "conference proposal" as the subject line. The selection of conferences will take place during the first two weeks of December, all applicants will be contacted before December 18th.
If you have any questions, you may contact Catherine Martin, coordinator, at the following e-mail : email@example.com
- Your conferences may be published in a special volume of l'Université de Shebrooke's history students review "Le Convecteur temporel"
- Many universities offer to pay a portion of the travel cost for students participating at conferences.
