Changing Tides and Hemispheric Connections in
Caribbean and Latin American Studies
18th Annual Tri-University CLAS Conference | March 27, 2020
Florida Atlantic University looks forward to hosting the 18th Annual Tri-University Graduate Student Conference in Caribbean and Latin American Studies, titled “Changing Tides and Hemispheric Connections in Caribbean and Latin American Studies,” on Friday, March 27, 2020 at the Boca Raton campus. The conference is a collaborative tradition of Florida Atlantic University, Florida International University, and the University of Miami. The purpose is to encourage and disseminate the research findings of emerging scholars who work in a variety of academic disciplines related to Caribbean and Latin American Studies.
The selection committee welcomes individual paper proposals concerning the Caribbean and Latin America on any theme, across all disciplines. Papers are welcome in all fields, including, but not limited to: history, English, anthropology, philosophy, cultural studies, sociology, linguistics, film and media studies, business, fine arts, nursing, health science, education, and the physical sciences.
As the year 2020 marks the 50th anniversary of Earth Day, we hope to assemble a special commemorative interdisciplinary panel that explores environmental issues in the region. Thus, we particularly encourage submissions engaging with issues in Caribbean and Latin American studies that pertain to earthly matters such as ecocriticism, environmental humanities, ecology, and environmental sciences.
Please submit a 250-word abstract and a short personal bio by February 17 to firstname.lastname@example.org. When submitting a proposal, please include in the body of the email the following information: name of the author of the paper, title of the paper, area of specialization, email, telephone, school affiliation, and abstract. Submissions are open to graduate students, although abstracts from advanced undergraduates will also be considered. If you are an undergraduate applicant, please specify in your bio.
Juried prizes will be awarded! Accepted applicants will be invited to submit their full papers by March 13, 2020 for prize consideration.
