The Indian Ocean is a cultural and economic system that dates back over five thousand years as Malays, Chinese, Arabs, Indians and Africans traded across it for centuries before the Europeans set foot in the area. Since the 1980s Indian Ocean studies have gained impetus, particularly among social scientists, and current debates on transnationalism are based on recent research carried out by scholars who have gradually understood the Indian Ocean as a network rather than as discrete geographical regions.

CALL FOR CHAIRS: "The Coming of Age of LGBTQ Studies: Past, Present, and Future Directions"
San Diego State University, April 17-18, 2015

Interdisciplinary Symposium: Transforming Contagion (10/23/15, Arizona State University's West Campus, Phoenix, AZ)

updated: 
Monday, February 2, 2015 - 4:08pm
full name / name of organization: 
Conference Organizers: Breanne Fahs, Annika Mann, Sarah Stage, and Eric Swank (New College of Interdisciplinary Arts and Sciences, Arizona State University)

We invite proposals for an exciting and provocative symposium on the topic of Transforming Contagion. This transdisciplinary and transhistorical symposium aims to explore contagion in its broadest sense by including perspectives about the spread, transmission, and modalities of contagion, and how contagion has been variously defined, imagined, and subjected to regulation and/or exploitation. By "contagion," we do not necessarily mean only that which occurs in the body or within the framework of embodiment, but also contagions rooted in the literary, psychological, moral, educational, or political. We thus invite papers from any historical period or methodological approach that consider the complicated topic of contagion.
