CALL. 15.02.2021: Cracking Open the Contact Zone: Imperialism and Indigenous... - Online





ORGANIZADOR/ORGANIZER/ORGANIZZATORE: Michelle Heeman; Nicole Constantine; Claire Khokhar



The Department of Classical Studies at Brandeis University invites submissions of abstracts for our Annual Graduate Student Conference, which will be held virtually. This year’s conference examines how indigenous populations interacted with imperial powers in the ancient world. This conference provides a platform for papers exploring the

relationship between the conqueror and the conquered, especially in examining modes of resistance, daily life living under occupation, imperialist policies toward conquered peoples, and the socioeconomic effects of imperialism. Priority will be given to papers examining indigenous interaction with imperialism in the ancient world, but other topics related to the conference theme will be considered. We welcome submissions from graduate students of all levels and from

disciplines including Anthropology, Archaeology, Art History, Classics, Comparative Literature, History, Jewish Studies, Near Eastern Studies, Philosophy, Religious Studies, Sexuality Studies, and Women’s Studies.

Possible submission topics include, but are not limited to:

The justification of imperialist thought in literature

The colonizer’s view of the colonized, or vice versa

The effects of imperial policy on the lives of people living in occupied territories

Cultural hybridity in the contact zones of empire

Indigenous voices in the historical and archaeological records

Papers must be original, unpublished works authored by current graduate students. Please send an abstract (no more than 300 words), a paper title, and a C.V. in PDF (.pdf) format to Michelle Heeman, Nicole Constantine, and Claire Khokhar at Papers should be 15-minutes in length and will be followed by a 5-minute question and answer session.

All papers will be presented in a virtual format. The deadline for submissions is February 15th, 2021. Selected speakers will be notified by March 1st.
