(Un)Bound Worlds: Rethinking Boundaries and Borders
March 16, 2012 (Abstract Submission due November 15, 2011)
The Graduate Students of the Duke University Department of History are pleased to invite graduate students in the humanities and social sciences to submit papers for their annual one-day conference at Duke University on Friday, March 16, 2012. The conference will explore the construction, lived experience, and contestation of material, discursive, political and disciplinary boundaries. We are especially interested in papers that approach boundaries and borders from a variety of disciplinary or methodological approaches. We would also like to specifically encourage scholars with works in progress or at an early stage in their research, including pre-dissertation graduate students, to apply.
Topics of relevance for the conference might include (though are not restricted to): movement and migration, identity construction, intellectual currents, scale, memory, state formation, geography and history, space and power, trade and the marketplace, as well as many others.
The conference will consist of panels organized around specific questions/topics with a commenter. There will also be both lunch and keynote speakers. Please submit an abstract of your paper including title and affiliation not to exceed 250 words by November 15, 2011, to Amanda Hughett at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Those selected will be notified by December 1, 2011.
