The fifth Summer Institute associated with the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) supported research porject, "Slavery, Memory and Citizenship," will focus on the connections among the experiences and legacies of slavery (both historic and contemporary forms), the ways in which the institution is remembered (researched, taught and publicly presented) and its implications for claims for complete citizenship.
We are seeking proposals for the 2014 Summer Institute to be held at the Coordinacion Nacional de Antropologia (INAH) in Mexico City, August 18-22, 2014. We encourage papers from a wide range of academic disciplines and methodological backgrounds.
As a central component of the research project, the Summer Institute will center the interplay between history and memory and its manifestations in contemporary society, and examine the ways in which the experiences of slavery are recalled and used to determine present day ascriptions of status as well as social policy and action.
During the one week event, the Summer Institute's plenary sessions will be conducted by distinguished professors. We encourage papers from a wide range of academic disciplines and methodological backgrounds.
We will be accepting papers on the following themes and topics:
Ethnicity and Identity
Memory and Patrimony
Citizenship and contemporary issues
Afro-Latin American and Afro-Canadian experiences
Applicants are advised to submit an abstract of no more than 500 words. Submissions must be accompanied by a current c.v., the title and abstract of the paper to be presented, and, a letter of recommendation.
The deadline for submissions is Friday June 20, 2014.
All interested applicants are urged to carefully review the CFP Online Submission form prior to uploading the required files to submit your proposal for the Summer Institute 2014.
All additional questions should be directed to: firstname.lastname@example.org
