2011-07-27 / Congrès, colloque / Evénements de l'Institut des Amériques
The South Atlantic Center of the Institut des Amériques (IdA) invites you to consider participation in a small international conference, “Spaces of French Migration, Culture, and Politics in the 20th Century Americas" February 10-12, 2012, at Georgia State University in Atlanta. We think that this Conference can benefit from your knowledge and interest in the field as well as that of colleagues in your discipline.
The South Atlantic Center is an international center for the Institut des Amériques, a research consortium among scholars from more than forty universities in France and the Americas--North, Central, and South.
“Spaces of French Migration, Culture, and Politics in the 20th Century Americas” will be a workshop and collaborative conference devoted to questioning the effects that French migration, culture, and politics have had on the formation of public and private spaces in the 20th century Americas. In conjunction with the IdA and Georgia State University, our goal is to bring together scholars in a range of disciplines to debate some of the following topics in relation to the production of American spaces: histories of migration, spaces of memory, philosophies of American cultures, influences and hybridization of languages, sounds of the South, politics of space.
We anticipate 35-40 participants for a workshop/research type-conference for presentations and discussions of the topic, in a boardroom-type setting. There will not be concurrent sessions. Discussion sessions will be organized around research questions and hypotheses posed by scholars in 15-minute presentations. Several scholars will be respondents who will summarize and synthesize the “findings” at the conclusion of the conference. A panel developed from the GSU/IdA conference will present at the annual IdA conference Paris in June 2012, this year on Migration.
We invite you to review the call for papers and additional topics (that are suggestive with potential to be developed) described in the attachment to consider submitting a proposal. Please also forward this invitation and description to all colleagues and graduate students who may have an interest. And lastly, please feel free to email or call either of us to discuss possible topics, suggest participants, and inquire further.
Panels will be organized around research questions and hypotheses posed by scholars in 15-minute presentations. Additional participants in each panel will be designated as respondents and will be responsible for summarizing and synthesizing the panel's discussion.
300-word abstracts should be written in English and addressed by November 7, 2011, to Yohann Brultey
(firstname.lastname@example.org), South Atlantic Coordinator for the Institut des Amériques. Please write Research Submission in the subject line of the e-mail.
