WHAT

Call for papers for a Joint Symposium in 2019-2020 Sponsored by the William P. Clements Center for Southwest Studies at Southern Methodist University and the Center for Spatial and Textual Analysis at Stanford University.

WHEN / WHERE

An initial meeting will be held at SMU’s satellite campus in Taos, New Mexico in Fall 2019 to be followed in Spring 2020 by a conference at Stanford.

TOPICS

The symposium and the resulting volume mark an opportunity to (re)consider the environmental contexts of borderlands and frontiers of different political orders, particularly pluralistic imperial regimes, roughly between the 15th and 19th centuries. While examining how environmentality was negotiated by human actors of bordering (or overlapping) political regimes, organizers also intend to explore possibilities that go beyond the binaries between nature and culture, and environmental and political orders.

APPLICATION

The organizers welcome submissions from scholars of any rank or affiliation who are eager to contribute substantively to what promises to be an exciting and important academic endeavor. By the deadline of October 1, 2018 applicants should submit a one-page CV and a proposal of 500-800 words to Johan Elverskog (johan@smu.edu) describing the research undertaken and its connection to the goals of the conference. For more information about the symposium please contact Johan or Ali Yaycioglu (ayayciog@stanford.edu).
