Interdisciplinary Graduate Student Conference

The History Graduate Student Association at Tulane University proudly announces its third annual Graduate Student Conference on the Global Gulf, to take place on February 20-22, 2014. The keynote speaker for this year’s conference will be Ada Ferrer. Ada Ferrer is a Professor of History and Latin American and Caribbean Studies at New York University and author of the 1999 Berkshire Award-winning Insurgent Cuba: Race, Nation, and Revolution, 1868-98.
As a conceptual model, the Global Gulf allows for a wide array of scholarship focused on the connections between and among the people, goods, and ideas circulating through the Gulf coast, the Caribbean Rim, the American South and around the world. The conference invites scholars across disciplines to submit paper and panel proposals attending to the politics, societies, and cultures of this dynamic region from any period. Potential topics might include creolization, and cultural hybridity; commercial, cultural, or biological exchanges; empire; race, class, or gender; and diaspora.
We welcome individual paper and full panel proposals. Submissions should include a 300 word abstract, and a one-page cv. Panel proposals should include a 200-word description of the panel as well as the individual paper abstracts. Please submit proposals to the Global Gulf conference committee at firstname.lastname@example.org no later than October 11, 2013.
