1st Postgraduate Americas Conference: Power and Change in the Americas (UCL, London)

April 30, 2015 @ 8:00 am - May 1, 2015 @ 5:00 pm

The UCL Americas Research Network is pleased to invite scholars to participate in its first International Postgraduate Conference, to be hosted at University College London from April 30 – May 1, 2015.

This two-day conference seeks to cater to an international community of postgraduate and early-career researchers of the Americas from across the humanities and the social sciences.

The overarching theme of the conference:

Power and Change in the Americas in the Modern Era

Geographically, this includes the whole Western Hemisphere (Central, South, and North America, as well as the Caribbean). By adopting a broad, hemispheric perspective, the organisers hope to encourage debates that extend beyond the boundaries of the nation-state, and to question the validity of cultural divides that often limit research agendas and enclose perceptions of complex problems and communalities.

NB: This conference will be free to attend, both for speakers and for the general public, though prior registration for attendance without presenting a paper is essential. Details on how to register will follow shortly. Keynote speakers will be confirmed soon.
