Sixth Annual Conference in Citizenship Studies

The Center for the Study of Citizenship at Wayne State University (clas.wayne.edu/citizenship) has announce its Sixth Annual Conference in Citizenship Studies. The conference will be held at Wayne State’s Detroit campus on 26 – 28 March 2009, and will focus on the Center’s theme for the 2008-2009 academic year, Representing Citizenship. Distinguished philosopher Wil Kymlicka (Queens University, Ontario, Canada), author of Multicultural Citizenship: A Liberal Theory of Minority Rights, will serve as the conference’s keynote speaker. The Center invites proposals for papers, panels, poster sessions, artistic displays and performances that examine citizenship and representation in many senses, from the political and legal to the literary and artistic. Topics may include but are not limited to the representation of political or legal interests by proxies such as legislators, political parties, interest groups, or lawyers; the representation of citizens in novels, plays, or print, broadcast, or digital media and the cultural consequences of this “embodiment”; and the circulation of depictions and descriptions of citizenship in school texts, government films, or other media meant to model or critique civic behavior. The Center plans to publish a volume of papers from the conference. Proposals should be submitted using the Center’s online form, available 15 August by the submission deadline of Friday, 14 November 2008. Both panel proposals and individual submissions are welcome. Questions should be directed to Marc W. Kruman at aa1277@wayne.edu.
