Battleground States: Scholarship in Times of Crisis.

Friday March, 31-Saturday, April 1, 2006

Bowling Green State University

As subjects and scholars, we negotiate contested spaces daily.
We live in a time of global military and political battles,
deterritorialized "wars" against drugs and "terror," and a
heightened contestation over discourses that define
patriotism, "values" and national identity. These broad
battles over political, economic, cultural, and (inter)national
borders are localized in struggles over battleground states and
responses to crisis and tragedy.
