Call for Papers
The American and New England Studies Program at Boston University is pleased to announce its 2014 graduate student conference: “New England and the World.” We invite submissions that consider New England’s place in national and international contexts. Proposals should reflect New England's role as 'the Hub' and the ways that the region has been and remains a vital center for activity. We seek papers that follow an interdisciplinary framework through literature, film, architecture, history, visual culture, archeology, ethnic studies, and other disciplines.
Possible topics include, but are not limited to:
• New England as an influential center for thought in the 19th century and its implications
The Graduate Student Association of the American and New England Studies Program at Boston University is committed to collaborative scholarship and encourages graduate students in all fields with interdisciplinary interests to submit proposals for twenty-minute presentations. A successful proposal will identify its sources and methodology and will be analytic rather than descriptive. The conference will be held on October 24-25, 2014 on Boston University’s Charles River Campus. Submit abstracts of no more than 250 words and a CV to: firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline for submissions is May 18, 2014. Successful applicants will be notified before the end of May.
This event is sponsored by the Graduate Student Association of the American and New England Studies Program, the American and New England Studies Program at Boston University, and the Boston University Center for the Humanities.
Keynote Speaker: Professor Dolores Hayden, Professor of Architecture, Urbanism, & American Studies, Yale University
