CAHSS Invites all NSU Students for “Crossroads of the Transatlantic Humanities Student Conference” Abstract Submission, March 23

NSU’s College of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences (CAHSS) extends an invitation to NSU students to submit an abstract for participation in an upcoming Humanities Student Conference to be held on Saturday, March 23, 2019, on NSU’s Fort Lauderdale/Davie. The conference theme is “Crossroads of the Transatlantic.” CAHSS’ Departments of History and Political Science and Literature and Modern Languages organize the conference.

The conference builds on the concept of South Florida as the crossroads of a Transatlantic world and asks students to develop presentations that explore the humanities and this convergence of cultures, values, and ideas not only in South Florida but throughout the Americas. The Humanities Student Conference strives to incorporate diverse perspectives and topics from a range of humanities fields including history, philosophy, literature, languages, cultural theory, and the arts. We also invite papers in legal studies, political science, national security, communication, conflict resolution studies, and international relations when approached with a humanities lens. Undergraduate and graduate students from all academic institutions are invited to submit abstracts of 150 words or less to Andrea Shaw Nevins, Ph.D., at no later than January 18, 2019.
