The Indiana University Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies (CLACS) is proud to host our second CLACS Graduate Student Conference on February 15-16, 2013 on the campus of Indiana University Bloomington. This year’s conference aims to bring together a diverse group of graduate students to facilitate interdisciplinary and inter-institutional cohorts within the field of Latin American Studies. For more on last year’s conference, see our webpage for Latin American Studies in Practice: Theory Beyond the Academy.
This year’s theme, “Shifting Social Landscapes,” encourages participants to consider changes in various social, political, and environmental landscapes. These shifts reframe the context in which citizenship is imagined and enacted, identities are constructed and imbued with meaning, and connections are built, maintained, or destroyed across national, linguistic, or cultural borders.
Keynote Speaker: Dr. Anya Peterson Royce (Chancellor’s Professor of Anthropology and Comparative Literature).
Submissions must include a title, an abstract (300 word maximum) and CV and must be received by November 16, 2012. Papers will be grouped thematically in panel discussions and each panel will be moderated by an IU faculty member.
