Two Postdoctoral Fellowships 2023-24 – The Andrea Mitchell Center for the Study of Democracy

Mitchell Center Postdoctoral Fellowship on “Climate and Democracy”
2023-2024 Academic Year
Application Deadline: February 15, 2023

The University of Pennsylvania’s Andrea Mitchell Center for the Study of Democracy and the Penn Program in Environmental Humanities (PPEH) invite applications for a one-year Postdoctoral Fellowship in any discipline whose research is pertinent to the theme of the Mitchell Center’s 2023-2024 faculty workshop series, CLIMATE AND DEMOCRACY. In addition to pursuing independent research, the postdoctoral fellow is expected to attend and participate in Mitchell Center events; teach one undergraduate course related to their academic interests; co-lead a research seminar for Mitchell Center undergraduate fellows; and attend other Mitchell and PPEH events whenever possible. Fellows typically organize and lead a couple of small-scale events over the course of the year. The stipend will be at least $53,800 plus benefits, including health insurance.

Since its birth in revolutions that swept the Atlantic world two centuries ago, modern democracy has developed under a relatively stable, if gradually warming, global climate. Now, even as they are beset by a diverse set of challenges – including right-wing populism, increasingly powerful authoritarian regimes, forms of media susceptible to disinformation campaigns, the impacts of the pandemic, and mass migrations sparked by environmental stresses, political instability, and economic inequality – the world’s democracies must also face accelerating climate change as it intersects with these other pressures in unpredictable and potentially devastating ways. In a year-long series during 2023-24, the Andrea Mitchell Center is partnering with the Penn Program in Environmental Humanities to explore the risks posed to democratic norms by climate change, as well as the capacity of democratic institutions to address the issue. And while it is possible to imagine a future in which natural disasters and democratic failures compound one another, we are asking how climate solutions and democratic values might reinforce each other and lead to greater political and environmental resilience.

Global in its outlook, multifaceted in its purposes, the Andrea Mitchell Center for the Study of Democracy seeks to contribute to the ongoing quest for democratic values, ideas, and institutions throughout the world. In addition to hosting speakers from the fields of academia, journalism, politics, and public policy, the Mitchell Center supports undergraduate, graduate, and postdoctoral research. It continues the legacy of the Penn Program for Democracy, Citizenship, and Constitutionalism, which fostered interdisciplinary scholarship from 2007 to 2017.

The Mitchell Center values interdisciplinary research, collaboration, and collegiality; is committed to promoting a culturally diverse intellectual community; and strongly encourages applications from women, minorities, and underrepresented communities. See below for the University of Pennsylvania’s Equal Employment Opportunity Statement.


International scholars are welcome. Applicants should have received the PhD no earlier than May 2018 but must have completed all requirements for the PhD by September 30, 2023.

Writing the History of Covid-19: Lessons for the Next Pandemic

While the Covid-19 crisis is still unfolding, it has already revealed much about the history of our
time and left lessons that will be important to study before the next pandemic. But even before it
began, archivists and scholars were struggling to develop new methods to record and analyze
history in an age of abundant but perishable data. Resource constraints and fights over access
have only intensified because of pressures on archival budgets and the partisan politics that
surround any attempt at retrospective analysis. How do we gain a sense of perspective, and
preserve information that might otherwise be lost?

Thanks to support from the National Historical Publications and Records Commission,
Columbia’s History Lab and MuckRock have assembled a database that already includes almost
two hundred thousand pages of records related to the government response to Covid-19 obtained
through Freedom of Information Act requests. We are also developing state-of-the art tools for
doing digital history, both to analyze large corpora and determine what might be missing.

This summer, History Lab will assemble a multidisciplinary team to take stock of archival efforts
to date, conduct exploratory research, and help identify priorities for long-term preservation. We
will begin with a two-week workshop (June 5-16) in which participants will meet with
historians, journalists, archivists, and public health experts. Over the following months, we will
conduct interviews and gather documents, and finally reconvene to report findings Aug.31-Sept.
1. This program will be led by Professors Matthew Connelly, Wilmot James, and Stephen Morse.

Eligibility: We encourage applications from those with substantial research experience who are
interested in participating in collaborative work during the summer months, with the goal of
producing jointly authored publications.

Financial Support: We can offer a summer stipend of $6,000 to help cover the cost of travel and
accommodations during in-person meetings. There is additional funding for research expenses.

How to Apply: Please use this form to provide basic information and upload a CV and an
application letter. For the letter, please describe your previous research experience, what
motivates you to apply, and what you hope to gain from participating in the program. Feel free to
contact us with questions (


Premodern Unfreedoms:

Global Approaches to Exploitation, Enslavement, and Trafficking

Conference date and Location: October 27-28th 2023; Urbana-Champaign, Illinois

Submission deadline: May 1st, 2023

This interdisciplinary conference aims to interrogate the state of the field for slavery, and broader
practices of unfreedom and trafficking, in the global premodern world. This field has flourished in
recent years, yet still remains relatively understudied despite offering fertile ground to discuss the
history of slavery, servitude, and exploitation. Premodern Unfreedoms seeks to grapple not only with
the larger historical issues of globalizing the practice of unfreedom in the premodern period, but to
also forefront the human stories at its core.

Premodern Unfreedoms will take place over two days (October 27th and 28th, 2023) in the Levis
Faculty Center at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign. The keynote lecture will be given by
Dr. Don Wyatt (Middlebury College). This conference is being planned in conjunction with The
Medieval Globe under the expectation that select papers from participants will constitute a special
issue of the journal. Proposals are invited to present twenty minute papers on any aspect of
unfreedom in the premodern world. Papers with an interdisciplinary and/or non-Western focus are
particularly encouraged. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

– Boundaries and parameters of unfreedom
– Unfree mobility and movement
– Representations of unfreedom in literature
– Resistance to exploitation, enslavement, and trafficking
– Teaching global premodern unfreedom in the classroom
– Methodologies and approaches for studying unfreedom

Proposals should consist of a title, abstract (max. 500 words) and a short academic biography. All
materials should be sent to no later than May 1, 2023. It is
expected that this conference will be held in person this fall, subject to the global health situation.

2023 French American Studies (AFEA) Annual Conference

The Challenges of Alliance and Dialog on Race in the USA 1815-2023

May 23-26, 2023

Dijon, France

Submissions contact: at and

Submissions deadline: January 15th, 2023

Though the question of slavery was silenced in the constitution, it quickly re-emerged in political debate, especially after 1821 and the Missouri compromise. Abolitionists were extremely vocal and even the Gag rule (1836) could not keep slavery out of political discussions. However, historian Benjamin Quarles claims that Black abolitionists were deliberately not mentioned by the Southern press so as not to underline the agency of ex slaves (and thus of slaves). Consequently, the question is not really whether the related questions of slavery and race were silenced before the Civil War (they were not) but how they were discussed , by whom, in which circumstances, and to what effect. With the coming of the Civil War and the war itself, political discussions on race and slavery gave way to sound and fury. Even when white historians shaped the history of the Civil War and reconstruction in a racist and conservative way in the early 20th century, Black historians were not silent and reacted by forming their own associations and writing books to educate the (mainly black) public. However, as the slave past of the United States and the legacy of slavery and segregation have become major historiographical fields, and as Native Americans are taking the lead in shaping new forms of writing their history as colonized people, present day book bans and state laws forbidding the teaching of Critical Race Theory seem to suggest that dispassionate dialog on race is still proving elusive in the United States of America beyond academia. 

Realizing how the questions and realities of slavery and race were never silenced in the United States over the “longue durée”, the organizers wonder why discussions of national guilt, reconciliation and reparations remain so difficult even today. Were the questions of race and slavery debated in such a way in the 19th century that even white allies could not feel the long term democratic need to reshape the national narrative? Can we feel the first stirrings of a new national narrative in spite of the rise of conservative agendas and increasing polarization? Are coalition building strategies which demand that allies from dominant groups learn to remain silent, while leaders representing minority communities voice their experiences as representative of those of their group, really conducive to a general re-assessment of the national narrative?

  • The organizers are interested in contributions based on case studies in the fields of history, sociology, and political science, bearing on the “longue durée” of the race question in the United States from the 19th century to today.

Please send 500 word abstracts to the organizers at and by January 15th, 2023 at the latest. We will get back to you in early February.

Film and Visual Studies Graduate Student Conference

Harvard University

May 4–5, 2023

Keynote Speakers: Yuriko Furuhata (William Dawson Scholar of Cinema and Media History, McGill University), Pooja Rangan (Associate Professor of English in Film and Media Studies, Amherst College), and Colectivo Los Ingrávidos

In a world teeming with images of brutality and destruction, how can we look away from spectacular violence and toward the atmospheres that produce its representations?

Historical and structural violence haunts and sutures so-called reality, binding together the world as it is. Frantz Fanon named such violence “atmospheric.” Often anesthetic in itself, atmospheric violence is rendered sensible by the ways in which it ceaselessly produces and circulates evidence of its existence: images and traces that gesture toward, but never fully depict, its underlying and enabling conditions. How might visual studies and media theory help us to parse seemingly banal spaces—civic and institutional, local and global, biological and geological—as atmospheres of violence? What perceptual, critical, and creative modes are required to not only apprehend atmospheric violence, but to address it? What practices might help to stall or stop its reproduction and repetition?

Recent scholarship in visual and media studies reconfigures dominant conceptualizations of affective atmospheres. For example, Yuriko Furuhata maps Neo-Imperial violence in geographically transposable techniques of climate control, while Pooja Rangan charts the juridical and forensic tendencies underpinning documentary listening. Similarly, film practices such as that of Colectivo Los Ingrávidos stage the perceptual experience of a violence that is literally inhaled and manifests as sensory derangement or, as Fanon called it, bodily “petrification.”

Whether a Transpacific media infrastructure too large to grasp, or a plastic, petrochemical, or heavy metal molecule too small to perceive, atmospheric violence both animates and decimates bodies in its proximity, inflicting real corporeal harm. Under such conditions, acts of protest like rioting and looting appear less as “senseless” and more as sensible communiques that actively resist atmospheric violence’s insidious order.

This conference aims to foster exchange and discussion among a diverse set of participants across fields that include, but are not limited to: film and media studies; the histories of science, technology, and computing; the history of art and architecture; visual culture; critical studies of race and ethnicity; disability studies; critical security studies; and postcolonial studies. We invite proposals for scholarly papers, audiovisual presentations, installations, experimental writing, and performances that engage with, as well as extend beyond, the areas listed below. We welcome proposals from thinkers and makers working outside academia. 

Please submit a 300 word abstract, a list of 3-5 bibliographic references, and a 100 word bio to by January 30, 2023. Please mention any audiovisual accommodations that you might require in your submission. Presentations should not exceed 20 minutes. Presenters will be notified in February 2023. Need-based travel grants will be made available to select participants.


13th Annual Boston University Graduate Student Political History Conference 

Crisis and Catastrophe in U.S. History
April 21st – 22nd 2023
Boston, MA
Keynote Speaker: Chad Williams
Samuel J. and Augusta Spector Chair in History, Brandeis University 

For the Boston University American Political History Institute’s (APHI) thirteenth annual graduate student conference, we invite submissions that examine the politics of crisis and catastrophe across many historical themes. 

Economic crises have undermined the stability of state institutions or caused new ones to be built, while natural disasters have shattered the physical, as well as political, foundations of these institutions. Periods of military crisis, within the United States or in countries against which the U.S. has waged war, have wrought catastrophes in the lives of civilians and combatants. Amid crisis and catastrophe, movements of social liberation and renewal have sometimes arisen, and sometimes been extinguished. Racial, class, gender, and sexual identities have been reconfigured in historical moments when society is shaken by political crisis or natural catastrophe. Moreover, crises and catastrophes in U.S. history can often be more clearly analyzed when placed in a global context, from great-power rivalries that influenced the course of the American Revolution to the COVID-19 pandemic of the last two years. 

We are excited to solicit submissions that explore the political histories of such themes from a variety of perspectives, encompassing both natural and human-made crises and catastrophes. Submissions are welcome on subjects throughout American history from before European colonization to our present age of democracy in crisis. 

Please submit a 300-word proposal and a one-page C.V. in a single PDF document via email to Submissions should be titled with “LastName_ShortTitle” and submitted by November 18th, 2022. If proposals are accepted, full papers (no more than 20 pages) must be submitted to by February 17th 2023

All presenters must be current graduate students. Distinguished faculty from both BU and the wider Boston area will serve as commentators for each panel. The most outstanding paper will receive the APHI Outstanding Graduate Student Paper Prize, which includes a $1,000 cash award. There is no registration fee for our conference. Please visit the conference web page at for more information and updates. 


Annual Paul Lucas Graduate Conference in History

Call for Papers: Power to the People: Politics, Perception, and Protest in History

Conference date: April 7-8th, 2023

The History Graduate Student Association at Indiana University is pleased to announce our
annual Paul Lucas Graduate Conference for Friday and Saturday, April 7th and April 8th , 2023.
This interdisciplinary conference is inspired by the manifold questions raised by the notion of
“people power.” Seeking to stimulate reappraisals of our historical understanding of the power of
the people at a time when resurgent populism has transformed contemporary politics and the
demands of academic research, our conference fore-fronts the following themes: The historical
development of democracy in the world, the dimensions of power in local, national, and
international politics, the manifestations of hard power and soft power by state and non-state actors,
popular and social movements, populism and democratic politics, historical research on popular
mobilization in dictatorships and authoritarian regimes, historical accounts of resistance, opposition,
or protest, histories from below or histories of everyday life. We invite abstracts on the above
themes; however, this list is by no means exhaustive and may include other subjects.

We welcome submissions for individual papers from graduate students of all disciplines,
including, but not limited to: History, Anthropology, Political Science, Sociology, Geography, Art
History & Literature, Religious Studies, Area Studies, Cultural Studies, Gender Studies, and Queer
Studies. Proposals may include any temporal, thematic, and geographic approaches to historical
Our conference will be held in hybrid format, both online through Zoom and in-person on
the beautiful campus of Indiana University – Bloomington, and we are pleased to announce that our
keynote address will be given by Dr. Juan Ignacio Mora on “Migrant Justice, Migrant Rights: The
Past and Future of the Farm Labor Organizing Committee (FLOC)”. Dr. Juan Ignacio Mora is a
historian of Latinxs, race, labor, and popular culture whose work questions the meaning of
foodways, migration, and citizenship in the modern United States. In Fall 2023, he will be starting as
an Assistant Professor in the Department of History and the Latino Studies Program at Indiana
University – Bloomington.

Submission details: If you are interested in participating, please submit the following materials as
pdf attachments to the HGSA email,, by February 17th , 2023:
Paper title and brief abstract (max, 400 words)
o Please include your name, university affiliation, and whether you plan to attend in-
person or online.

Curriculum Vitae (max, two pages)

The HGSA Conference Committee will evaluate abstracts and inform participants by February 24th
of their acceptance and panel assignment. Final papers are expected by March 31st . Please submit
any questions to

Columbia University Religion Graduate Student Conference

Theme: Shaping the Anthropos: Cosmologies, Mythologies, and Logics of Subjecthood

Date: April 7th-8th, 2023

Submissions and Contact: Nathan and Saila at:

Submissions Deadline: January 13th, 2023

The Human, as a contingent terminology and taxonomic category, has shaped, and been shaped in the
imbrications of cultural (and dare we say political?) imaginaries (to begin with a tenuous truism). The present
CfP seeks scholarly, literary, and artistic contributions across disciplinary boundaries that interrogate the shaping
of the anthropos in its innumerous accumulations and deployments. The conference intends to contribute to the
discourse on the boundaries and histories of the cosmological, mythological, and epistemological shaping of the
human subject—past, present, and future.

Delimiting and negotiating the boundaries of bodily autonomy and citizen-subject relation shapes the contours of how we—as human—navigate our worlds, imagine alternate futures, and (re)think past iterations. Time and space shape the human, and are in turn shaped by our anthropocentric inclinations. In recent years, the planetary scale of humanity has emerged in our consciousness as both interconnected and irresolvable in the face of longer horizons of temporal rupture: i.e. climate catastrophe. In the (post)colonial context and lineage of racial and gendered criticism, wherein Sylvia Wynter has articulated the intra and/or post-Enlightenment Euro-Christian constructions of Man1 and Man2, in the stratified taxonomy of Empire and colonization—rendering some bodies (white male bodies) closer to god (theological or nation/state) and others nearer to the beast (la bêtise, through gendered epidermalization), this conference attempts to further discourse on the contours of the human–in all its tentacular becomings. Contemporary examples being: in the current (ongoing) debates in the U.S. empire on Trans rights (Arkansas, Act 626, banning gender-affirmative care to youth) and female bodily autonomy (Supreme Court decisions on Roe v. Wade), the subject of the human relies on casting the human in the longue durée of Christian construals of what constitutes the human proper—the sexual moral citizen. In Iran, today we find the contestation of woman-as-citizen signified in hair—both as protest and as intimate remainders of identity. Further South, the construction of the Indian citizen subject is narratologically and institutionally being shaped through antagonistic otherizations between Hindu, Muslim and Christian identities, often politicizing food and ritualistic cultures surrounding animals. The boundaries spanning relations between human, animal and godly beings and bodies are reconfigured through appropriation of histories towards imagined futures.

In this moment, as the Posthuman Turn is traversing through a decades-long moment of gestational accumulation of scholarship, critique, absences, and abundances—a ripe field of scholarship (perhaps overly so, fermenting as it were)—we see an important juncture, now, to revisit the site of the Anthropos, and the contingent articulations which surround it, in the context of the cosmological, the religious, and even possibly the theological (a scary term). With the continued rise of religious nationalisms across the globe, the emergence of a global pandemic, increasing data of climate crisis tipping-points, etc. etc. etc. and…, the conference desires to bring robust conversation and attention to the shaping of subjecthood within the spheres of the human, the other-than-human, the viral, the nation–particularly in the context of a ‘Department of Religion.’ How might such a discursive terrain expand the religious categories of the ‘self’ and the ‘human’ through the logics of their subjecthood? What modes of thinking may arise on human subjectivities, beyond their rational, emotive and agentive capacitive registers? Could the problematization of anthropocentric constructions also demand for a revisionist or revolutionized understanding of ‘religious subjectivity’ itself? How might the interconnectedness of the subject within cosmological and mythological space and time be shaped through the political, linguistic, and sociocultural constructions around, and certainly not limited to, the human-as-subject?

The determining forces acting on prescribing belongingness of body subjects to land, and—by imbricated extensions—the nation and nature, have been historically observed, resisted and grappled with by marginalized communities. The historical and potential alignments, contestations, confluences and comparisons across geographical, political, social and cultural contexts signify the experienced histories and imagined futures. How is the human subject shaped through the logics of such phenomena? How does land shape the human, as in-turn the Anthropos shapes the contours of land-scapes? For the dispossessed of land, where does the “no-where” of home take shape in relation (as relation) to the human-as-subject—through which one might consider the elsewhere and otherwise of subjecthood making? What kind of power relations influence and evolve through the processes of transformative shaping? How do diverse identities and communities experience it across mythological and cosmological contexts?

  • The graduate students of Columbia University’s Department of Religion invite proposals for presentations engaging with ideas related to the question of Shaping the Anthropos through Cosmologies, Mythologies and Logics of Subjecthood. We invite scholars to propose the material on which they wish to present on, and also welcome the inclusion of visual and auditory material in their presentations on visual and performing arts. We look forward to having an interdisciplinary engagement, and invite proposals from graduate students across disciplines of anthropology, sociology, political studies, history, regional studies, gender studies, disability studies, religious studies, and others. The conference topic is broadly framed to host a diverse range of topics that may or may not directly engage with Religion (with a capital R).



This conference emerges amidst a global pandemic, and with that in mind we are eager to explore ways in which participation might expand and shift. The hybrid modality of the conference allows for an in-person component, as well as a Zoom component to allow for broader participation which takes into consideration the wellbeing of scholars in various stages of accessibility and location. We hope that those that are able to participate in-person do so; and for those that travel or other limitations disallow in-person presence, they may present on the Zoom portions of the conference. Some examples of potential topics are broadly listed below to give an idea of our thinking along subject lines, and we welcome topics that can be imagined beyond as well: 

  • Indigenous Resurgence(s) and their cosmologies
  • Indigeneity/Native/Savage Juridical Constructions of Citizenry
  • Human and non-human spirits and/or relations
  • Queer cosmologies
  • Gender, caste, race, indigeneity in mythologies
  • Mythological politicization of identities and/or communities
  • Religious subjectivity, animacy and/or submission


  • Cyborg and/or posthuman futures
  • Subaltern bodies and communities
  • Refusal and Recognition as modes of survivance
  • Land and its Intimacies
  • Infrastructures of Terror, and the Terror of Infrastructures
  • Animal Intimacies in the Settler-State
  • Nationalisms and their Chimeric products
  • The Colonial Human/The Postcolonial Animal
  • Protesting Bodies, Perduring Bodies


  • In/human Kinships at the Ends-of-Worlds
  • Animacy, Virology, and the Human Amidst Pandemics
  • Architectural Orientations and Their Inhabitants
  • Landscapes: Wild and Civilized
  • Mythologies of the Citizen-Subject


  • Emancipated Subjecthood in Diaspora
  • Caste and/or gender in/across Islam, Christianity, Sikhism, Buddhism and Hinduism

Call for Papers – Decarbonization, Climate Resilience and Climate Justice Conference

Conference Date: March 31st, 2023

Location: Columbia University

Climate change will dramatically exacerbate socio-economic inequalities both within and across
countries, disproportionately impacting the marginalized. Therefore, urgent work is needed to
clarify the channels via which societal actors—individuals, governments, NGOs, enterprises, and
civil society groups—may resolve the equity dilemma in climate resilience efforts. In a parallel
manner, justice remains front and center in our scholarly understanding of decarbonization
efforts. Decarbonization depends on the generation of scientific knowledge about the processes
that will reduce human emissions of greenhouse gasses and will require strategies for
coordination across countries seeking to ratify effective emissions reductions agreements.

Investigating the relationship between climate justice, resilience, and decarbonization, this
conference seeks to address pressing and often-times transdisciplinary questions by spotlighting
the expertise of Columbia scholars working on these topics. We invite submissions from
graduate students, post-docs, and faculty that work on related themes in the natural, and social
sciences, and humanities.

To make a submission, please complete this form by February 17th, 2023. Submissions should
consist of a paper title and an abstract (250-500 words). Please also indicate if you would like to serve as a
discussant. If accepted, full drafts of seminar-style conference papers must be submitted via by March 17th, 2023.


 Equinoxes 2023

Corporeal Conversations

Conference Date: March 10-11, 2023

Location: Brown University 

Submission Deadline: January 15, 2023

Hosted by the department of French and Francophone studies

“Je suis moi-même la matière de mon livre” announces Michel de Montaigne to the readers of his autobiographical Essais.
While initially speaking to the reader, Montaigne would later become a reader himself, critically conversing with his own
text in the margins of previous editions. This archive of edits underscores the materiality of a “body” of work as a site and
subject of conversation between readers, authors, and critics alike. As a literary experiment in both style and voice, the
Essais continue to shape and be shaped by conversations. In this tradition, Equinoxes 2023 seeks to provoke new dialogues
around existing corpuses, to think about our relationship to creative works and the archive of criticism that comes with

Works of art call out to each other, engaging in conversations that span borders and epochs. From the circulation of written
works within salon culture to the power of images to capture a movement, how might we understand our interactions with
media and each other as conversations centered around and facilitated by bodies? Bodies continue to be a site of political
struggle, from the policing of race, gender, and reproduction to the increasing awareness of our own environmental
entanglements. What might we learn from listening to and/or reading bodies, in their various material representations?
Papers may address the following topics: the construction of a corpus, the relationship between text and criticism, issues of
voice, how bodies speak for themselves, the legibility of a body as racialized, gendered, and/or disabled, the afterlife of a
work of art, the legacy of creative traditions, the construction of archives, and texts as living documents. Finally, how might
our own interventions be understood as corporeal conversations in their own right?

As an interdisciplinary conference, Equinoxes encourages submission from a variety of fields, including but not limited to
literature, philosophy, history, ethnography, anthropology, media studies, disability studies, sociology, art history, religious
studies, Women’s and Gender Studies, and political science, provided that the presentation relate to French or Francophone

We welcome papers related (but not limited) to the following topics:
● Bodies of work
● Theories of the corpus and canonicity
● Posthumous publishing
● Editorial processes
● Archive(s)
● Palimpsests
● Criticism of theory and praxis
● The works of Michel de Montaigne
● Autobiography / Autofiction / Autotheory
● Networks of communication and writing
● Written or recorded conversations
● Voices and the voiceless

● Survival, testimony and inheritance
● Death, mourning and remains
● Embodiment
● The sensing body
● Body and voice
● Body language
● Disability
● Gendered bodies / (Wo)man and the body
● Corporeal Feminism
● Women’s writing / écriture féminine
● Rhetoric and Speech Acts
● Worldbuilding / Worlds from words

  • Graduate students who wish to participate in the conference should submit an abstract of no more than 250 words, along
    with a short bio. Abstracts must be sent, as attachments, to before January 15, 2023.
    Emails should include the author’s name, institutional affiliation, and contact information. Presentations, whether in English
    or in French, should not exceed 20 minutes.


2023 Women’s and Gender History Symposium
University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign

Theme: Gender Variance and Non-Conformity
Date: March 3 & 4, 2023
Format: Hybrid (Zoom and in-person at UIUC)
Submissions and Contact:
Submission Deadline: November 30, 2022 at 5pm CST

The 21st annual Women’s and Gender History Symposium at the University of Illinois at
Urbana-Champaign seeks graduate papers of 15-20 minutes in length that foreground histories of
women, gender, sexuality, and/or queerness that pay particular attention to gender varience and
non-conformity broadly defined. Additionally, we are open to alternative presentations (e.g. film,
poetry, art) so long as they fit within the symposium’s format. We welcome papers and presentations
from a broad range of time periods, disciplines, and methodologies that engage, but are not limited
to, the following issues:

❖ The intersection of gender variance with other discourses, such as race and ethnicity,
disability, sexuality, science and medicine, or environmental studies.
❖ Broadly defined challenges to expectations of gender through choices in
reproduction, marital status, reproduction, modes of appearance, and other acts.
❖ Representation of gender variance and gender non-conformity in media.

This year’s keynote speakers are Dr. Clare Sears and Dr. Toby Beauchamp. Dr. Clare Sears is an
associate professor in the Department of Sociology and Sexuality Studies at San Francisco State
University. Their research focuses on queer theory, transgender studies, critical criminology,
historical methods, and disability studies. Dr. Toby Beauchamp is an associate professor in the
Department of Gender and Women’s Studies at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. His
research focuses on the problem of visibility in transpolitics, arguing that the scrutinizing of gender
nonconformity is motivated less by explicit transgender identities than by the perceived threat that
gender nonconformity poses to the U.S. racial and security state.

Panels will take place the morning and afternoon of Friday, March 3rd and Saturday, March 4th,
2023. The keynote addresses will be held each afternoon. While our keynote speakers will be
presenting in person at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, we will also offer a hybrid
format via Zoom for panelists who wish to attend remotely.

We encourage submissions focusing on and using interdisciplinary methods and subjects. Subjects
need not be confined to history (or its methods) alone. Papers that engage with, but are not limited
to, critical geography studies, disability studies, performance studies, African American studies,
Latinx studies, Asian American studies, ethnic studies, American Indian studies, and/or postcolonial
studies are also encouraged. First time presenters and/or MA students are warmly welcomed.

Please submit proposals (200-300 words in length) together with a CV to by November 30, 2022 at 5pm CST.

Abstract submissions are due by November 30th at 5pm CST. Full details in the attachments. For more information about the symposium, visit our website at:

Levels of Agency:
From Bacteria to Gaia and Back

Spontaneous Generations, an interdisciplinary journal published by the graduate students of the
Institute for the History and Philosophy of Science and Technology, University of Toronto,
invites contributions to its 12th volume, entitled “Levels of Agency: From Bacteria to Gaia”. As
of this moment, confirmed contributors include Alan Love, Anne-Sophie Meincke, Denis Walsh,
Glenda Satne, and David Morris.

Recent years have seen a resurgence of interest in the notion of biological agency in the history
and philosophy of science and STS. Though the very idea of agency as a biological concept has
been and remains highly controversial, philosophers, and practicing biologists are now seeing the
organism as an agent—conceived of as an entity that pursues goals, actively regulates its own
development, and shapes its environment—as being indispensable to biology. At the same time,
historians have thrown light on the long and largely forgotten legacy of these ideas and debates.
Though this idea has had and continues to have radical consequences for biology as a science, it
also has implications for related disciplines, such as cognitive science and Artificial Intelligence,
as well as broad philosophical implications for questions ranging from the metaphysics of
emergence to the place of mind in nature. At the intersection of these proposals is the question of
whether we can and should speak of nested levels of agency: from the level of the simplest
bacteria, to multicellular animals, to human agency, and extending even to social groups,
ecosystems, and perhaps the entire planet. But whether or not it is useful to unify such a wide
variety of phenomena under the umbrella of agency remains an open question. We welcome
contributions on this and related topics, along with any aspect of their rich history. Questions
which might be taken up include, but are not limited to:
● Is the concept of agency applicable beyond the level of the organism, namely to groups
and ecosystems? What are the limits of the concept of agency?
● How might a historical perspective shed light on our current debates?
● How might conceptualizing agency in one domain help or mislead efforts in another

● Does the idea of levels of agency have promise as a heuristic or research program? And if
so, should it begin from the “bottom-up” as suggested by research on ‘basal cognition’, or
from the “top-down”?
● How does the concept of agency help us conceptualize inter- and intra-organismal
dynamics (as we see with holobionts)?
● How does the concept of agency relate to various naturalisations projects in philosophy
of biology and cognitive science (of teleology and mind respectively)?
● How can we demarcate agents from non-agents?
We invite reflections on the challenges and opportunities of agency as a concept relevant across
domains and levels, from bacteria to Gaia. We especially welcome contributions in the form of
focus essays: 2 – 4,000 words in length. Research articles and book reviews which speak to the
theme of agency are also welcome. We aim to publish both established and early career scholars.
We will also be inviting artists to contribute to the issue, specifically to consider how levels of
agency might be represented. Contributions should follow the Chicago Manual of Style, 17th
edition; be formatted in MS Word; and be received no later than December 15th. We are also
happy to review abstracts before that time if you have an idea for a submission and are
considering whether to proceed. Please send abstracts, inquiries, and contributions (along with
your institutional and departmental affiliation) to’

Oxford Middle East Review (OMER), a student-run, peer-reviewed publication at St. Antony’s College, Oxford.

Call for Papers:

The editors welcome submissions for the seventh issue of the Oxford Middle East
Review, a peer-reviewed, interdisciplinary journal for discussion and debate on issues
relating to the Middle East and North Africa. The theme for this issue will be:

The Afterlives of Revolution


The concept of an “afterlife” does not signify an end but rather a continuity amidst
turbulence, changes, transformation, and loss. The semantics of the word “afterlife”
have expanded beyond the description of life after death and/or rebirth, to mean “the
instance of continued use or influence”, as the Oxford English Dictionary describes it.
In this issue, we use the concept of “afterlives” to avoid the imaginaries of new
beginnings after revolutions, and illustrate the continuity amidst rupture, and the
perseverance of human experiences during turbulent times. From the fall of empires to
the events of the Arab Spring eleven years ago , in what ways have the impact of
revolutions affected the lives of the people of the Middle East and North Africa,
including policies related to different nation states within the region? What are the
main changes, for better or worse, that transformed the social, political, economic, and
demographic landscapes of the region? How does the public relate to revolution, and
describe its influence?
For this issue of OMER, we encourage applicants to explore the functional as well as
the intangible aspects of the theme in their submitted manuscripts. We invite
applicants to engage with the theme through empirical, comparative, and theoretical
approaches that investigate the theme in relation to the political, economic, social,
and/or cultural landscape of the Middle East and North Africa region. We also
welcome projects centered around specific case studies. Papers will be considered for
the journal’s two sections:

Policy Section:

Shorter briefs or position papers up to 2,000 words (including references and citations) aimed
at influencing contemporary debate or policy-making.

Research Section:

Articles from 7,500 to 10,000 words (including references and citations) that present original
material from any discipline and engage critically with the theme in the context of the
Middle East and North Africa region.

The History, Classics, and Religion Graduate Students’ Association (HCRGSA) of the University of Alberta invites graduate students to submit papers on the topic “Societies in Crisis: Reactions, Resilience, and Resolution.” The conference will take place March 2-4, 2023, in Edmonton, Alberta. We will have a virtual option, but we encourage everyone who is able to attend in person to do so. We are excited to offer travel awards (up to $250) and a best abstract award of $100 (All award money will be given in person at the conference).
Different crises have been at the forefront of every newspaper and every social media post. Over the past generation, we have witnessed the collapse of the Soviet Union, September 11, 2001, the Financial Crisis of 2007-2008, the Covid-19 pandemic, and the Russian invasion of Ukraine. We have seen societies alter, but we have also seen societies persevere. The topic of crisis has been and will continue to be an essential research subject. In this context, we invite applicants to discuss societies in crisis related to their respective fields of study; Why do societies face crises? What crisis defined a region for generations? How did an area recover from a disaster? What can communities do to help a country in crisis? What is the role of religion in societies during

Call for Papers: Yale Pre/Early Modern Forum

From “Fuzzy” to “Eclectic” and Everything in Between: Intercultural Encounters in the Pre-Modern World

April 14 – April 15, 2023; New Haven, CT

In-person Graduate Conference hosted by the Pre/Early Modern Forum and generously sponsored by Yale History of Art, Early Modern Studies, Council for East Asian Studies, and Medieval Studies

The pre-modern world was shaped by encounters and engagements that spanned geographical, cultural, political, and temporal boundaries. Scholars have employed a variety of terms to describe such moments of convergence, including “hybridity,” “creolization,” “syncretism,” “eclecticism,” and even “fuzziness.”

In 2009, historians Sünne Juterczenka and Gesa Mackenthun used the mathematical concept of “fuzzy logic” as a framework for examining the entanglements, ambiguities, and mutual impacts resulting from interactions between multiple cultures. “Fuzzy logic” argues for the presence of multiple truth values on a spectrum from absolute truth to falsehood. It allows for the exploration of blurred boundaries and the diffusion of practices. More recently, art historian Holly Schafer employs the term “eclecticism” to describe intercultural objects whose disparate elements retain their independence while creating a new form. Broadly defined as a practice inspired by a multiplicity of cultural, artistic, and stylistic sources, eclecticism provides a way of thinking about the intercultural nature of the pre-modern world. 

Building on these concepts, the Pre/Early Modern Forum invites graduate students working in the humanities to explore all things “eclectic” and “fuzzy” that complicate cultural and geographical boundaries in the pre-1800 world. We encourage submissions from all geographical distinctions, especially those that explore topics related to East Asia. Interrogating the ways in which intercultural encounters blur and maintain boundaries, the conference aims to foster creative and innovative dialogue across cultures, regions, time periods, and disciplines. 

Possible topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Contact zones, intersectionality, and peripheries

  • Movement of objects, people, and ideas across boundaries 

  • Authorship and ownership

  • Translation and transcription

  • Religious proselytization and conversion

  • Micro-histories addressing specific instances of encounter

  • Gift exchange, diplomacy, and trade

  • Technology and methodology

  • Patronage and collecting

  • Power dynamics within systems of colonialism 

  • Identity formation and articulation 

Interested participants are invited to submit an abstract of no more than 300 words, along with a short biography, to by Monday, January 2, 2023. Accepted participants will be notified in late-January. Accommodation will be provided for all participants. At this time, we are planning for an in-person symposium but will adapt to a virtual format if Covid-19 conditions and University policies change. 

Twenty-Second Biennial New Sweden History Conference | Call for Papers

Contested Spaces:

Colonial and Indigenous Concepts of Landscape
Along the Delaware River Valley

River. The Swedes, Dutch, Lenape, British, Finns, Susquehannock, and Haudenosaunee (Iroquois)
approached farming, mapping, property rights, and waterways differently over time. Successful proposals
will explore one or more of these groups and their relationship with each other in the context of land use
along the Delaware River. The NSHC invites submissions from researchers addressing the topic through
the fields of archaeology, art history, economics, history, linguistics, material culture, musicology, religious
history, or other related disciplines.
Submitted abstracts will be reviewed by the Conference Committee. If selected, the author will present
their research at the conference on Saturday, November 4, 2023. The selected presenters will receive an
honorarium, assistance with travel and housing costs, and admission to the conference.

The Columbia Journal of Criminal Justice

Given our current political climate, the study of criminal justice is an increasingly relevant topic of interdisciplinary study. Although not rigidly defined, We have offered some potential topics that community members may bring to the journal: the criminal justice system, criminology, policing, the federal prison system, criminal law, carceral history, abolition, etc. JCJ will be publishing a semesterly journal that includes full-piece articles, columns, op-eds, guest writers, engagement pieces, community resources, and more

Given the sensitive nature of the journal, we have placed a strong emphasis on diversity, equity, and inclusion within Columbia’s campus and beyond. Unique to other undergraduate journals, we would like to implement a strong emphasis on community engagement on Columbia’s campus and beyond. Especially in the study of criminal justice, it is critical to offer perspectives from individuals which this discipline has affected personally. Similarly, in each addition, the journal will include a “community resources” section, where DEI deputies will research and share community initiatives, action items, local activism, and more that are relative to the content of the journal. Overall, we intend to make JCJ a collaborative, stimulating and welcoming community for all those interested in the broad realm of Criminal Justice. Although this journal may be primarily interesting to pre-law students, we encourage applicants from all majors to apply–each and every unique perspective is innately valuable! Similarly, if someone is more interested in creative work rather than editorial, we have a plentitude of positions on our creative team.

MESAAS Graduate Student Conference 2023: Decolonizing Cartographies [20–21 April 2023]

The Department of Middle Eastern, South Asian, and African Studies (MESAAS) at Columbia University is pleased to announce its annual Graduate Student Conference to be held on 20th and 21st of April, 2023. This conference is a space for graduate scholars, activists, artists, and others to think through and confront colonial systems.

The conference this year is interested in “Decolonizing Cartographies” – or, stated broadly, how do we

challenge colonial regimes of knowledge and the ways they divide the world.

In order to pursue these questions, we must also ask what ‘decoloniality’ means and looks like across various settings: academic, artistic, practical, etc. In what ways does the decolonial contrast with the anti-colonial, what does each position offer, and what possibilities are opened and foreclosed by reorienting from one to the other?

For example, cartography as science and practice implies a focus on issues of knowledge production while at the same time involving acts of representation. Humanistic and social scientific practice, more broadly, especially within the university, continues to operate out of an epistemology which complicates efforts to decolonize it. How can we shift our pedagogy and practice to begin producing decolonial knowledge and engendering decolonial practice?

We encourage papers and presentations which speak to our theme. Topics may include, but are not limited to:

  • Human Geography
  • Technopolitics & Expert Knowledge
  • Alternative Lifeworlds
  • Racialization
  • Colonial gendering
  • (Re)presentation
  • Textual Landscapes
  • Translation
  • Non-Modern Epistemologies and Ontologies
  • Peripheries
  • Critical Ecologies
  • Decolonial Aesthetics
  • Critical Approaches to Sexuality
  • Transnational Cinema and Media
  • Colonial and Decolonial Temporalities
  • Settlement/Unsettlement
  • Conceiving Ruptures & Continuities

    This is a hybrid conference. This conference will be held predominately on Zoom, with some in-person components for  those in the New York City area. Please submit your abstracts for a 20 minute presentation by the 27th of February, 2023 to this link:

    should be no longer than 350 – 400 words. Please include a short biography of no more than 100 words in your submission. Notification of paper acceptance will be sent by mid-March. Your final papers should be submitted by April 10th. You can follow the conference on our Twitter page: P

Anna Julia Cooper Workshop series, hosted by the Department of History at the University of Maryland, College Park. I would like to welcome you to the Anna Julia Cooper Workshop in Black History, a works-in-progress workshop series in the D.C., Maryland, Virginia area convened by Quincy Mills, Associate Professor of History at the University of Maryland. For the 2022-23 academic year, the workshop will meet on Fridays, from 4:00-5:30 p.m. via Zoom. 

Our next meeting will be October 28th, where we will be discussing “By the Dexterous Use of Their Hatpins”: Black Women in the New York Garment Industry, 1900-1950, by Janette Gayle.

The Anna Julia Cooper Workshop in Black History (The Cooper Workshop) features scholars from various disciplines researching and writing on Black history in the United States and the world. Cooper was the first African American woman to earn a doctorate in History, taught and mentored scores of students in D.C., and made invaluable contributions to Black intellectual life. The Cooper Workshop will feature scholars from various disciplines researching and writing on Black history in the United States and the world. We use “Black” to embrace the expansiveness of African America and attend to the long tradition of black internationalism. With the conviction that “all knowledge is incremental and collective,” as David Levering Lewis once wrote, the Workshop aims to foster a supportive space for the engagement and production of innovative scholarship in African American history. 

Six times per academic year, we will meet to discuss a colleague’s pre-circulated paper. Papers and the Zoom ID will be circulated one week in advance of the workshop. To join the listserv, email Derek Litvak, graduate coordinator, or Quincy Mills, convener, For more information on the workshop, visit
