Center for the Study of Citizenship, Wayne State University
Detroit, United States
The Center for the Study of Citizenship at Wayne State University is celebrating its tenth anniversary in 2013. For our anniversary conference we invite you to submit an abstract for a paper that discusses how your scholarship deepens understandings of the meaning of citizenship.
The perspective of the conference, as always, is global, interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary and proposals on any aspect of citizenship studies are welcome from scholars working in any discipline or interdisciplinary field. Preference will be given to those papers that address the conference theme.
The best papers will be considered for publication in a peer-reviewed volume in the Wayne State University Press book series, “Citizenship Studies,” edited by the Center’s director, Marc Kruman.
Abstracts of no more than 500 words are welcomed for consideration. Proposals should be submitted to the Center’s Research Associate, Helen Callow firstname.lastname@example.org along with a short biography (50 words) no later than October 15, 2012. Both panel proposals and individual submissions are welcome. Those interested in submitting panel proposals can use H-Citizenship (http://www.h-net.org/~citizen) to locate scholars with compatible interests.
Some scholarships will be available for international scholars to help defray their travel costs. These funds will be distributed on a competitive basis. Remote presentation of papers and remote participation will also be available.
Questions should be directed to Marc W. Kruman email@example.com or Helen Callow firstname.lastname@example.org.
