I wanted to extend an invitation for the 10th Annual History Graduate Student Conference, that will take place tomorrow at the University of Maryland, College Park.
The main theme of the conference is “Metamorphosis: Transformations of Borders, Identity, and Place.” The conference will begin with breakfast at 8:30 on the second floor of Taliaferro Hall and will feature panels throughout the day on race, Native-Settler relations, borders, and identity, with a keynote address by Prof. Pier M. Larson of Johns Hopkins University. Here you can find a detailed program of the event: 10th Annual HGSA Conference Schedule
I was selected to participate in the panel “Performing Power in Latin America” and I will present a paper of my previous research, title “Political Ceremonies and Power Ostentation: the Importance of Public Recognition in Late Colonial Caracas.”
I hope to see you there!
