Mexico in Its Revolutions
September 30 - October 2, 2010
Glendon College @ York University
Toronto, Ontario - Canada
The goal of this conference will be to commemorate the Mexican Revolutions of 1910 and 1810 by reflection on those _other_ Mexican revolutions that have occurred or that are currently taking place at the margin of the nation's dominant narratives, at the periphery of nationalistic discourses that assign specific identities for Mexicans, or at the borders and edges of visible systems of power. We will reflect on these other revolutions - even if anonymous and lacking heroes or glory - that have confronted abstract systems of power in Mexico or the Mexican status quo in some form: aesthetic and artistic, social, urban, racial, sexual and gender revolutions, as well as those revolutions waiting to happen and still to come.
We particularly welcome interdisciplinary or comparative approaches situated within diverse discursive zones (cultural studies, comparative literature, history, art history, journalism, sociology, philosophy, film studies, among other fields).
The languages of this conference will be Spanish, English and French. Please send a 300 word abstract for a twenty minute presentation before June 30th, 2010, to the following email address: email@example.com
Notification of acceptance will be sent after July 15th, 2010. Please visit http://www.mexicoensusrevoluciones.ca for more information of keynote speakers and registration.
