Call for Papers
Department of Modern Languages and Literatures University of Miami
12th MLL Graduate Student Conference
“Time for Outrage” Around the World
Deadline to submit abstracts: August 12, 2013
The Department of Modern Languages and Literatures at the University of Miami is pleased to announce its annual graduate student conference, “’Time for Outrage’ Around the World,” to be held October 3-4, 2013.
In memory of Stéphane Hessel, the recently deceased French writer and activist, whose essay “Time for Outrage" became the manifesto for anti-capitalist activism that inspired several resistance movements, the conference aims to interrogate the discourses of subversion, and the massive and popular uprisings that have emerged in the past few years, such as Occupy Wall Street, Les Indignés, los indignados, the Arab Spring, Gay Marriage Movements, Proposition 8, and Yo soy 132, among others. The aim of this conference is to determine the particularities, similarities, and differences of these social phenomena. How have social networks, the Internet and the media intervened in these movements? Can we talk of e- revolution?
Abstracts for presentations will be accepted in English, French, Portuguese, and Spanish.
We encourage papers on a wide range of geographical areas, periods, interdisciplinary topics and theoretical approaches including but not limited to:
• Internet Studies
• Religious Studies
• Gay Liberation, LGBTI Rights
• Cultural policies
• Transnationalism and Citizenship
• Political Sciences
• Literary Studies
• Cultural Studies
Proposals must include a 250-word abstract and title as well as 5-6 keywords, the author’s name, a short bio, and institutional affiliation. Please send abstracts via e-mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org by August 12, 2013. We will inform you of acceptance via e-mail no later than August 30, 2013.
