CALL FOR PAPERS: LATINO/A USA: TRANSNATIONAL IDENTITIES / IDENTIDADES TRANSNACIONALES
Seminar at University of Southern Denmark, Odense, Denmark
Friday-Saturday, November 14-15, 2008
We are inviting 30-minute presentations addressing any aspect of the interdisciplinary field of Latino/a studies. We welcome traditional research papers as well as methodological considerations from multiple disciplinary, theoretical, historical, and geographic perspectives. All proposals are welcome, but we are particularly interested in research papers that focus on transnational identities and fall within one or several of the following areas:
- Economic, social, and cultural relationships between Latin American and US Latino/a communities
- Social, political, and cultural interactions of Latino/as with other ethnic and racial groups in the US and in between different Latino/a groups in the US
- Cultural and artistic representations of Latino/a experiences
- Political mobilization of Latino/as in the US
Please email max 400-word proposals as Word attachment, together with one-page CVs, to Dr. Anne Magnussen, magnussen @ hist.sdu.dk by September 15, 2008. Successful participants will be notified of acceptance via email by October 1, 2008.
We accept papers and presentations in both English and Spanish. Selected seminar presentations will be published as part of a special issue of the peer-reviewed journal Dialogos latinoamericanos in 2009. This seminar is part of a series of activities organized by “Latinos: Migration and Transnationalism in USA,” a network funded by the Danish Research Council for the Humanities. The network is a collaborative project between researchers from the University of Aarhus (Ken Henriksen), Copenhagen Business School (Jan Gustafsson, Helene Balslev Clausen), and the University of Southern Denmark (Benita Heiskanen, Anne Magnussen).
