Colloquium on Ethnicity and Diaspora
The Colloquium on Ethnicity and Diaspora (CED) provides a vibrant intellectual community for students and faculty to foster active research interests in Asian American studies, African American studies, Latino/a studies, Native American Studies, and related fields, such as globalization studies and other ethnic studies. Established in 2006-2007 the CED hosts monthly meetings ranging from pre-circulated paper presentations of works in advanced stages of completion, to book discussions, to lectures and presentations by key scholars working on ethnicity and diaspora.
CFP: 2009-2010 CED
Coordinated by Pavithra Prasad and Kareem Khubchandani, graduate students in Performance Studies, the 2009-2010 CED meetings will continue to foster discussions on race, ethnicity and diaspora with a specific focus on these themes: transnational racial and ethnic formations and the specific performances or cultural articulations of diasporic communities; borderland theory, transnational flows; new directions in postcolonial theory; studies of affect; political economy; representation and media studies.
We welcome scholars from all fields to share their work at the CED. We have a limited number of slots open, so please let us know soon if you would like to participate as a presenter. Please email Pavi (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Kareem (email@example.com) with a short description of your work by September 21, 2009.
