Each spring, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and Duke University Consortium in Latin American Studies sponsors an academic conference inviting Duke and UNC graduate students, faculty, and national and international visiting scholars to participate.
2018 CONSORTIUM CONFERENCE
THE CONSORTIUM IN LATIN AMERICAN AND CARIBBEAN STUDIES
at The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and Duke University
CONTEXT AND RELATIONALITY IN LATIN AMERICAN AND CARIBBEAN STUDIES
Submission Deadline: FRIDAY, DECEMBER 15, 2017, 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 Annual Consortium Conference, to take place February 16 and 17, 2018 at Duke University’s Rubenstein Library 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 within 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 (context and relationality) in 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 related to the main conference theme. 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 Friday, December 15, 2017 in the form attached HERE.
If you have problems with the form, please submit your proposal to Miguel Rojas-Sotelo email@example.com. Send your proposal with a subject line: 2018 Consortium Conference.
