"Power and Subversion: a Multidisciplinary Conference"
History Graduate Student Association (HGSA)
Society for Women's Advancement in Philosophy (SWAP)
The Fourth Annual Southeastern Regional Graduate Student Conference at Florida State University will be held Saturday, March 24, 2011. Dr. Michael Ruse will deliver the keynote speech, entitled Darwinian Evolutionary Biology - Is it just a Male Power Play with a Scientific Face?. History graduate students or any other closely related area are invited to submit a curriculum vitae and a 450-700 word abstract for presentations to email@example.com by Friday, January 28, 2012. Panels are welcome, but individual papers are accepted.
Topic Examples – political, intellectual, religious, gender, class, race, identity, or linguistic – Papers should address some aspect concerning sources of power and their opposition. How have women interacted within a male dominated sphere of influence? How have monolithic categories like race, gender, or class been formed? How have they been contested? How do minority ideologies interact with majority ideologies? How do centers of power interact with their peripheries? How have scientific paradigms been challenged? How does material culture affect power dynamics in any given sphere?
These are some examples, but the conference committee welcomes many other ideas.
