Call for papers: Migration and Citizenship 1500 - 2000
Date of Conference: October 19, 2006
The History Department of the University of Texas at Arlington (UTA)
and the Transatlantic History Student Organization (THSO) are
sponsoring the Seventh Annual Graduate Student Symposium on
Transatlantic History. Since 1999, this symposium has proved to be a
venue for the discussion of comparative and transnational/
transcultural character of the interrelations and interactions
between peoples of the Atlantic World.
Since North and South America have been populated by migrants from
Europe, Africa and Asia, millions of people have relocated to this
"New World." These migrants, arriving voluntarily or involuntarily on
the new continent, brought with them their cultures, customs, and
languages. Throughout the past these new citizens contributed to a
distinctive merging of societies in North and South America. We
invite papers that deal with the multitude of social, cultural,
linguistic, economic, and political aspects of migration while
incorporating definitions of citizenship. Students are encouraged to
use a broad and imaginative interpretation of this topic.
Graduate students from history and other disciplines are invited to
submit a 300-word abstract and abbreviated curriculum vitae by May
31, 2006. Authors of papers accepted for a 20-minute presentation
will be notified by June 30, 2006. Selected participants will be
awarded a small travel stipend to help offset expenses. Please e-mail
your abstract to: Paul Rutschmann at <prutsch at uta.edu> and Dr. Thomas
Adam at <adam at uta.edu>.
Note: Be sure to include your e-mail and regular mailing address to
ensure that you can be reached during the summer of 2006.
