CCASLS Conference: Deadline Extension
Location:	Quebec, Canada
Conference Registration Deadline:	2005-02-01 (in 12 days)

There is still time to register for our “Furthering the Globalization Debate”
conference scheduled for Montreal, from 27th April until 1st May. The deadline
is 1st February 2005. The Canadian Council of Area Studies and Learned Societies
(CCASLS) will hold this first ever joint Area Studies conference encompassing
all of its four regional associations, with the support of the Canadian
Association for Studies in International Development (CASID).

For details and applications, go straight to our website:

This will be a two-tier conference, with forums designed to highlight current
academic contributions in African Studies, Asian Studies, Latin American and
Caribbean Studies, and Middle Eastern Studies, along with a special venue for
cross-area research that is thematically relative. The theme for the conference
is "Furthering the Globalization Debate: Cross Regional Comparisons". Scholars
and students are invited to submit papers that are conducive to either a
regional area, or a cross-regional theme.

The keynote address for the Conference will be delivered by Dr Ann Laura Stoler,
Chair of Anthropology and Distinguished Professor of Anthropology and Historical
Studies at the New School University. Dr Stoler's work on empires and
postcolonial studies, on race and culture, on sexuality and imperial power, has
been critical in advancing our understanding of the colonial encounter. Her work
transcends disciplines and geographical borders. Her books include Capitalism
and Confrontation in Sumatra's Plantation Belt, 1870‑1979 (1985), Race and the
Education of Desire: Foucault's History of Sexuality and the Colonial Order of
Things (1995) and Carnal Knowledge and Imperial Power: Race and the Intimate in
Colonial Rule (2002). Forthcoming works are Tense and Tender Ties: Race and
Empire in North American History and Along the Archival grain: Colonial Cultures
and Their Affective States.

Our themes are:

Theorizing the Integration of Area Studies

Capitalism and the New World Order

Historicizing Globalization

Social Inequality and Social Cohesion

Health, Disease and Society

Globalization and the International Division of Labour

National and Cultural Sovereignty

Cross-regional, cross-disciplinary and with an appeal to those both inside and
outside the academy, “Furthering the Globalization Debate” is an exciting
initiative designed to broaden the horizons of international scholarship. Please
join us in the vibrant, historic city of Montréal in the Spring.
