- Call For Papers: Place, (Dis)Place, and Citizenship Conference 2014
- May 24 2013Wayne State UniversityCall for Papers Place, (Dis)Place and Citizenship March 20-22, 2014 Wayne State UniversityDetroit, Michigan, USA From the ancient polis to the modern nation state citizenship has been defined in terms of attachment to a specifiable geographical area. Place figures centrally in citizenship for a number of reasons: Easily discernable spaces encourage interaction, invite commitment, and enable participation. At the same time, interaction, commitment, and participation give shape to the local geography of citizenship. The many local civic engagement efforts sprouting up globally attest to the continuing importance of place in citizenship. Many of these movements are intended to provide a discernible space of interaction, commitment, and participation. If the local encourages participation of inhabitants, it also pens out from citizenship those who are seen as alien to the locale. Yet modern revolutions in communication, transportation and technology have eroded the significance of place in citizenship. Exploring the relationship of place, placelessness and citizenship is the theme of the Eleventh Annual Center for the Study of Citizenship conference. Relevant topics might include but are not limited to: urban citizenship local citizenship migration diasporic communities transnational citizenship patriotism the impact of globalization multiple citizenship immigration policy digital citizenship impact of the Internet. This list touches the surface of topics connected to place and citizenship. Although the program committee will give preference to proposals that are directly relevant to the theme, proposals on all aspects of the study of citizenship are welcome. Abstracts of no more than 500 words are welcomed for consideration. Proposals, along with a short biography (50 words), should be submitted in one file to the Center’s Research Associate, Helen Callow (firstname.lastname@example.org) no later than October 15, 2013. 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. 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.
