Research Symposium, July 16-17, 2012, Newcastle, Australia
The aim of this symposium is to bring together scholars to share insights and to enter into a conversation about the connections between domestic service and colonization. This symposium will provide an opportunity to workshop individual papers in a collegial environment, drawing out key themes, topics and issues across different sites and times. A selection of the workshopped papers will be included as peer-reviewed chapters in a book published by an international academic press.
Scholars of domestic service from all disciplines are invited to submit proposals for papers offering specific studies, historical or contemporary, of domestic service and colonization, or broader comparative and reflective studies. Established scholars, emerging scholars, and postgraduate researchers are encouraged to submit proposals for papers to workshop.
Confirmed keynote speakers are Professor Mary Romero (Arizona State University) and Associate Professor Swapna Banerjee (Brooklyn College of CUNY).
Proposals should include a title, a 250-word abstract, a brief (one-page) CV and full contact details. They should be addressed no later than December 1, 2011 to:
