We request papers and panels that examine cross-cultural interactions and exchanges between various social groups. For instance, paper and panel topics can cover communities, cultures, classes, or individuals, from sharing and exchange to conflict and misunderstanding. This conference seeks interdisciplinary papers and panels that might include, or build from numerous disciplines such as: Literary Studies, Art History, Borderland Studies, New American West, Women and Gender Studies, and Religious Studies. The conference will be held at UNL’s City Campus on March 14-15, 2014.
Paper proposals from graduate and advanced undergraduate students across all disciplines are encouraged. Proposals should include a 250 word abstract and one page C.V. Full panel proposals will also be considered. Panel proposals should include a one-paragraph description of the panel itself, as well as a one paragraph abstract for each paper and a current short C.V. for each panel participant. Please indicate any audio-visual needs required for presentations upon submission of proposals. All proposals should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than December 1, 2013.
