The UCL Americas Research Network is pleased to present the 4th Annual Conference of the Americas Research Network: Intersections in the Americas to be held at UCL, Institute of the Americas from 3-4 May, 2018.
The Americas Research Network welcomes proposals on any aspect related to the theme of Intersections in the Americas, covering a range of periods and regions in the hemisphere. Papers of an interdisciplinary nature are particularly welcome and we invite current postgraduate students and early career researchers alike to apply.
The theme for the conference this year draws on contemporary issues of division in the geopolitical, societal and domestic spheres. Today, the need to interrogate the concept of intersections between peoples, nations, cultures, ideologies and historical periods is increasingly clear. The relevance of intersections to the Americas can be read in terms of climate change, development, security and growing political tensions.
You can find full details of the call for papers here.
Abstract submission deadline: December 4, 2017.
