Stony Brook University
Latin American & Caribbean Studies Center
11th Annual Graduate Conference
Friday, April 20, 2012
at Stony Brook Manhattan Campus
Keynote Speaker: Anne Rubenstein
Call for Papers: Trans-nationalizing Popular Culture
The Latin American and Caribbean Studies Center at Stony Brook University is pleased to announce its eleventh annual graduate student conference to be held on April 20, 2012 at Stony Brook Manhattan. We are looking for a wide range of popular culture topics and panels that explore the theme: “Trans-nationalizing Popular Culture.” Popular culture often transcends national boundaries, and this conference seeks to engage in a discussion that will allow us to understand the actions, influences, and phenomena that have helped Popular Culture in Latin America cross those boundaries. Paper/panel proposals that do not explicitly address the conference theme will also be considered (if not necessarily prioritized).
To that end, we are interested in continuing to promote work in:
Film, Television & Mass Media Studies
Race, Gender, Class & Ability Studies
Sports, Toys, and Games
The conference provides students the opportunity to present their research in a forum devoted to discussion, as well as to the exploration of new perspectives. The conference is opened to all disciplines (i.e., history, political science, literature, philosophy, anthropology, sociology, etc).
Abstract (250-300 words) should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org by the extended deadline February 28, 2012, either in English, Spanish or Portuguese, and must include a cover page with name, academic affiliation, and contact information.
