The UNC-Duke Consortium in Latin American and Caribbean Studies invites you to participate, and/or (co)organize panels for the 9th Annual Consortium Conference. Submissions for panels and/or short presentations by individuals, pairs, collectives, or working groups related to the main conference theme. Panel proposals are strongly encouraged.
This year the conference will be dedicated to revising and renewing the many perspectives scholars, from a wide spectrum of disciplines, as well as cultural practitioners, take when developing research and cultural projects embedded in the complex realities –past and present- of Latin America and the Caribbean. Attention will be given principally to the politics of knowledge in shaping new ways of understanding indigeneity and cosmopolitanism, economic development, security, global health, popular sensibilities through aesthetic production–including performance, visual plastic arts, and literary forms– historical narratives, ideological formulations, and political theory, among others.
Your proposal, in the case of a panel, should include a title and a brief (250-word) description of the topic to be addressed, as well as name(s) and affiliation(s) of the participant(s). Individual submissions are accepted; include a title and a brief (250-word) synopsis of the paper, as well as name and affiliation. Attachments in Microsoft Word are preferred, but if you send the information in the body of an e-mail message, be sure that your formatting includes international characters.
The conference welcomes also multimedia presentations, exhibitions, film screenings, and performances by participants.
Please submit your proposal electronically no later than Monday, December 10, 2012 to Natalie Hartman at firstname.lastname@example.org, Beatriz Riefkohl Muñiz at email@example.com, and Miguel Rojas-Sotelo firstname.lastname@example.org – please use as subject: 2013 Consortium Conference.
