The Penn Program on Democracy, Citizenship, and Constitutionalism invites paper proposals for its Seventh Annual Graduate Workshop Series at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia. We welcome submissions by graduate students from any university and discipline whose paper relates to one or more of the programís overarching themes of democracy, citizenship, and constitutionalism.
The Penn DCC Program, established with the aid of a grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, provides an interdisciplinary venue for graduate students to present their research and receive constructive scholarly feedback. We believe that cross-disciplinary discussion illuminates our understanding of the multi-faceted issues raised by topics of democracy, citizenship, and constitutionalism. You can see previous papers presented at the workshop here: http://www.sas.upenn.edu/dcc/workshops/graduate.html.
The DCC Graduate Workshop is a yearlong series that is held once a month between September 2013 and May 2014 and is organized by the DCC Program's Graduate Fellows. Two graduate students present their papers at each meeting. Presentations are approximately 10 minutes per paper and are followed by a group discussion. We ask workshop participants to read the papers prior to the event. Papers are circulated 10 days in advance of the workshop and should be no more than 25 double-spaced pages.
Please send 1) an abstract of up to 300 words including a working title for the paper and 2) a brief statement that indicates your discipline and institution, as well as when your paper will be ready. Do not hesitate to apply if your paper will be ready at a later date since we hold workshops throughout the academic year. WE DO NOT HAVE THE FUNDS TO PROVIDE FOR TRAVEL OR ACCOMMODATIONS. Please submit abstracts by Friday, August 9, 2013 to PennDCC@gmail.com. Feel free to contact us with any questions.
