THE CONSORTIUM IN LATIN AMERICAN AND CARIBBEAN STUDIES
at The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and Duke University
Latin America and the Caribbean: Approximations of the Past, Anticipation of the Future
Submission Deadline: MONDAY, DECEMBER 7, 2015, 5:00PM (This is a firm deadline – late submissions will not be considered.)
The UNC – Duke Consortium in Latin American and Caribbean Studies is pleased to invite you to participate, propose panels and individual submissions, and/or nominate graduate students to the 12th annual Consortium Conference, to take place February 12 and 13, 2016 at Duke University’s John Hope Franklin Center and UNC’s FedEx Global Education Center.
This year the conference emphasizes collaborative work in Latin American and Caribbean Studies, exemplified by the research, scholarship, and practice of current scholars working at the UNC and Duke Consortium. We encourage proposals that demonstrate multidisciplinary approaches to Latin American and Caribbean research. Attention will be given principally to panels focusing on issues related to theory and praxis of Latin American studies from the social sciences, humanities, arts, health and environmental sciences.
We invite submissions for panels and/or short presentations by individuals, collaborators, or working groups. Panel proposals are strongly encouraged. The conference welcomes alternative formats such as multimedia presentations, film screenings, and performances by participants (that maintain the panel format and do not include complex production). Typically, sessions meet for a total of 90 minutes.
Please submit your proposal electronically no later than Monday, December 7, 2015 to Miguel Rojas-Sotelo firstname.lastname@example.org (please use as subject line: 2016 Consortium Conference). Your proposal should include a title and a brief (250-word) description of the topic to be addressed, as well as name(s), affiliation(s), and e-mail addresses of the participant(s). Attachments in PDF are preferred, but if you send the information in the body of an e-mail message, be sure that your formatting includes international characters.
