CFP: Graduate Conference on Latin America & the Caribbean - March 2013, York University

International Graduate Student Conference on Latin America and the Caribbean



Forging ahead with its commitment to promote interdisciplinary research
concerned with the economic development, political and social
organization and cultural and artistic contributions of Latin America
and the Caribbean, York University's Centre for Research on Latin
America and the Caribbean (CERLAC) is hosting its 3^rd Graduate Student
Research Conference on *March 15^th and 16^th , 2013 at York University
in Toronto*.

This conference brings together scholars working on Latin America and
the Caribbean to share their research in a collegial, professional and
friendly environment. The conference organizing committee welcomes
papers, presentation proposals and panel proposals on research focused
on Latin America and the Caribbean. We are seeking a broad range of
playful, critical, engaging, diverse, and dynamic themes that span
across various disciplines including, but not limited to, social
sciences, humanities, fine arts, environmental studies and law and
business.Themes from previous conferences include indigeneity,
literature, inter-state relations, violence, identity, language,
development, gender, fair trade, diaspora, memory and neoliberalism.

All modes of presentations are welcome, including papers, posters, film
and other creative expressions and may be presented in any language of
the region, while abstracts must be submitted in English, French,
Portuguese, or Spanish by *September 30, 2012*. We particularly
encourage applicants to coordinate panels around a particular topic or
theme. If you're interested in organizing a panel and would like to
include the call or abstract for it on our website, please contact <>.



Please visit to obtain the
required conference application form and for further information. The
form includes a request for a 250-word (maximum) abstract for papers or
alternative presentation proposals. Applicants who wish to form a panel
may use the panel proposal form also found on this website and are
encouraged to contact us early so that the panel abstract and call may
be included on the conference website.

The deadline for applications is *September 30, 2012*; however, those
planning to present in artistic/alternative formats (e.g. film, dance,
visual arts, music, etc.) are encouraged to contact us earlier for
logistical/planning purposes.Inquiries and completed application forms
may be sent to <>. Successful
applicants will be notified by December 1^st , 2012.

Those whose proposals are accepted will be asked to submit a final or
near-final draft of their full papers/presentation material by January
30, 2013. This will facilitate a thorough review by the panel discussant
and therefore guarantee you detailed feedback; this element of past
conferences has proven very valuable to participants, helping them to
refine their research questions and to develop their papers into
publishable form.
