CALL FOR PAPERS
Metropolis and Colony
March 20-21, 2009
University of Florida, Gainesville

The graduate students in the French section of the Department of Languages, Literatures and Cultures announce their first annual conference, University of Florida at Gainesville on March 20-21, 2009. 
 
The aim of the Conference is to bring together graduate students in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences to discuss the conference theme.  In the post-colonial environment, scholars are increasingly confronted with issues of domination and subjugation inherent in colonialism.    In 2005, a controversial resolution was passed by the French government to underline <the positive role of colonization> in French textbooks. The resolution provoked a strong debate in French society.  As governments and popular culture wrestle with post-colonial identity, what is the objective reality of Western and non-Western cultural relationships? Conference participants are asked to investigate cultural interdependencies of colony and colonizer, between metropolis and colony.      

Possible topics include, but are not limited to :
-	Betweeness 
-	Colonialism and Post-colonialism
-	Colonization and Decolonization 
-	Culture and Identity
-	Development  
-	Diversity 
-	Emancipation 
-	Francophonie 
-	Generation Conflicts and Culture Conflicts
-	Independence and Freedom in Politics 
-	Language, Literature and Culture  
-	Lost or Regained Identity / Culture 
-	Migration    
-	Nation, Community, Citizenship 
-	Politics 
-	Race and  Identity 
-	Transnationalism
-	Women and Children Right / Status 

To be considered, paper proposals, in French, English or Spanish, should include: 

A 200-300 word abstract
Your name
Mailing address
Email address
University affiliation 

Presentation should not exceed 20mn (10 pages MLA style) and may be either in French, English, or Spanish. 

Deadline for submission is January 15th, 2009.  Please email paper proposals as a Word document or PDF attachment to: Audrey Viguier [log in to unmask] or Christian Ahihou [log in to unmask] The conference proceedings will be published on the UF Library web site to be available to the students.
