Igtheist Posted August 12, 2013 Share Posted August 12, 2013 (edited) Conference Website: http://scholarcommons.usf.edu/iigw/ Graduate Student Conference: "Identities and Inequalities in Globalizing World" University of South Florida, Tampa, FL Marshall Student CenterFriday, October 18, 2013 From everyday life to social institutions and structures, theories and empirical studies of identities and inequalities must increasingly encompass their embeddedness within global contexts. Whether recognizing how local events are affected by non-local forces or theorizing global systems, understanding identities and inequalities in present times requires a global focus. For this inaugural graduate student conference, we seek abstract submissions by graduate students in the Social Sciences that emphasize global influences and/or contexts and relate to the following three themes: CULTURES: Popular Culture, Media, Internet, Subcultures, Communities, and others IDENTITIES: Expressions of Gender, Race/Ethnicity, Class, Sexuality, Health, Age, Nationality, Religion, and others STRUCTURES: Social Structures, Institutions, Politics, Social Policy, and others All conference papers must be single or first-authored, and presented, by graduate students. In addition to presenting their own work, graduate students have the opportunity to participate in one of the following two-hour methods workshops facilitated by USF Sociology faculty: Narrative Analysis, Facilitator: Donileen Loseke Analyzing Original Qualitative Data, Facilitators: Sara Crawley and Maggie Kusenbach Quantitative Data Analysis, Facilitators: John Skvoretz and Elizabeth Vaquera Abstracts (200-300 words) of conference papers and a current CV must be submitted by September 6, 2013, using the link below. Submissions must include the paper title, name(s) of presenter(s), institutional affiliation(s), contact information for first author, A/V requests, preferences for workshops (first and second), and any special needs required. Abstracts, CVs, and supplemental information should be included in a single Word document. Submission is limited to one abstract per student (single or co-authored). Up to 20 out-of-town participants will be offered conference stipends that include two nights in a hotel (double occupancy) near the university, two breakfasts, and free admission to the conference dinner. There are no conference registration fees. We also offer a Conference Paper Award Competition with cash prizes and faculty mentoring toward publication for the three best papers (selected by a Paper Awards Committee).
