Race and Place: Borderlands and Boundaries


The University of Alabama‚s Department of History invites single paper
and panel proposals for the 4th Annual Race and Place Conference:
Borderlands and Boundaries, to be held March 10-12, 2005 on the
university‚s campus in Tuscaloosa. The conference seeks to promote
cutting-edge scholarship on the study of race and ethnicity, broadly
defined, in a global context. We especially encourage papers
examining how power and difference are imagined, configured, and
contested, as well as critical explorations of collective cultural
identities (including notions of race, ethnicity, nation, clan,
lineage, family, and so forth) as these are created and negotiated
across geographical, temporal, and ideological boundaries. Ideally,
papers and panels will embrace a variety of theoretical and
disciplinary perspectives beyond the narrowly historical. For more
information, and examples of past Race and Place programs, please
refer to our website:

Those interested in presenting a paper should submit a one-page abstract and a one-page c.v., by October 31, 2004, via mail or e-mail to Dr. Gregory M. Dorr,
Dept. of History, Box 870212,
University of Alabama,
