Title: “Ruptures and Revolutions: Moments of Unrest and Change”
The History Graduate Student Association at Indiana University invites panel and individual paper proposals for the Annual Paul Lucas Conference to be held March 23–25, 2012 on the Bloomington campus of Indiana University.
This year’s conference “Ruptures and Revolutions: Moments of Change and Unrest” seeks to explore the impact and meaning of transformations and unrest in an increasingly global community.
Graduate and undergraduate students, journalists, activists and members of the community who study or actively engage in protests and moments of change are cordially invited to submit papers and posters addressing all topics pertaining to contemporary and past political and social movements; revolutions in technology, medicine, and science; economic and cultural change; and transnational, international, and national revolutions across space, time, and medium.
The conference welcomes submissions from a variety of fields that employ a wide array of methodologies. The committee encourages submissions of pre-organized panels (comprised of three or four panelists, in addition to the chair and a discussant), roundtable sessions, and creative poster presentations. Individual papers are also welcome and will be assigned by the Conference Committee to a suitable panel.
We ask that interested participants to send a short CV, panel proposal, or paper abstract to firstname.lastname@example.org. Panel proposals should include the names of participants, titles and summaries of individual papers. A/V technology will be available to participants.
The deadline for the submission of proposals is January 4, 2012.
