Graduate students in the Department of Sociology at Binghamton University
are pleased to announce the upcoming "Graduate Student Conference in
Historical Social Science" to be held on April 29 - May 1, 2005 at
Binghamton University.

The keynote speech will be delivered by Prof. Giovanni Arrighi, Professor
and Chair of the Department of Sociology at Johns Hopkins University. He
will be speaking on "The Strange Death of the Globalization Project."

While this conference is intended to bring together a wide range of
graduate students in the general field of historical sociology, students
from other disciplines within the social sciences are also strongly
encouraged to participate. The Conference is designed to provide
opportunities for graduate students from various institutions to establish
contact and share ideas with each other, and create networks to conduct a
large-scale collaborative historically-grounded study.

We would also like to emphasize the global character of our conference. In
this sense, we encourage submissions from students of all historical
periods and/or all parts of the world. We welcome applications for the
proposed panels including, but not limited to:

# Historical / Global capitalism
# Crisis and the politics of the late modern world-system
# Social movements / anti-systemic movements
# The production of knowledge
# Global incarceration
# State regulation, institutions of global governance
# Comparative Hegemonies / Empire
# Multiple modernities and cultural forms of Modernity
# Colonialism and nationalism in Historical perspective
# Food and agriculture systems
# Environmental Studies
# Gender studies
# Urban studies

Students interested in participating should send their title and abstracts
(not exceeding 300 words), as well as scholarly affiliation, address, fax
number and email address, to no later than
February 20, 2005.

Decisions concerning the acceptance of papers will be made by March 7, 2005.
