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.
