Alcalá de Henares, October 24-26, 2013
The Consortium for Transatlantic Studies and Scholarship (CTSS), centered at the Franklin Institute-UAH, consists of transatlantic universities in the Americas and Europe. CTSS invites scholars in the humanities and social sciences to participate in an interdisciplinary conference on GLOBAL CHALLENGES to the TRANSATLANTIC WORLD on October 24-26, 2013.
The Conference on Global Challenges to the Transatlantic World addresses several inter-locking issues, mainly:
The overall aim of the conference is to bring together scholars from across the world and from across the arts, humanities, and social sciences, to discuss the nature and changing traits of Global Challenges through the lens of the transatlantic perspective. Priority in the selection process will be given to papers that problematize in depth the transatlantic dimension – e.g. comparative, cross-cultural and intercultural methodologies, analytical perspectives, and pedagogic approaches. The organizers especially welcome young scholars and postgraduates.
Proposals can be sent from October 30, 2012 – July 1, 2013.
September 1, 2013: Deadline for registration at conference with reduced price.
