The Tulane Culture Workshop: Movements and Ethnoracial Rights in Latin America

View Full Event Description

Join the Tulane Culture Workshop for a discussion of Movements and Ethnoracial Rights in Latin America with Tianna Paschel, University of California- Berkeley, African American Studies and Sociology.

Workshops function on a different model from lectures. In a workshop the paper is distributed so that people can read the paper beforehand. The author gives only a brief introduction to the article, to contextualize the piece. The workshop itself amounts to an extended Q&A on the piece. In this workshop, we will discuss Dr. Paschel’s ongoing ethnicity-based social movements research in Latin America. The discussion will provide her with feedback and give participants an inside view of the craft of scholarship with one today’s leading thinkers.

Call For Papers- Haiti: Paradoxes, Contraditions, Intersections in the Making of a People

View Full Event Description

CALL FOR PAPERS: Haitian Studies Association’s 29th Annual Conference

The Haitian Studies Association will hold its 29th Annual Conference in New Orleans, Louisiana, a site that offers scholars a look at how the “making of the people” occurs outside of the geopolitical spaces associated with a nation-state. Indeed, the Haitian Revolution of 1791-1804 forced not only the Louisiana Purchase of 1803, but also the migration of slaves, slave owners, and free blacks and mulattos between the two former French territories. These movements of people led to the creation of new spaces where migrants linked to an emergent Haiti would become part of a new North American dynamic also characterized by inequalities and exclusion.

The Haitian Studies Association seeks a diverse set of scholarly interrogations of these themes from disciplines across the humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences. We are especially interested in fully constituted panels, and will prioritize panels that speak directly to our themes and attempt an interdisciplinary dialogue.

Panel and roundtable proposals are to be no longer than 500 words, clearly listing the individual paper titles and authors. Individual paper abstracts should be around 250 words. Presenters are expected to register for the conference in advance to ensure their names are in the program.

Proposals with be accepted until June 1st, 2017. Fore information regarding the conference and guidelines for proposals, click here.
