CALL FOR PAPERS

"A Vision of Revolution"  
Exile and Deportation in Global Perspective

April 2-4, 2015, Rochester, New York
http://www.rit.edu/cla/conable/call-papers 

Exile and deportation have a long, complex, and intertwined legacy. The forced removal of groups from their homelands and the coerced expatriation of individuals operate as two edges of a single political weapon. States and state agents throughout world history have employed deportation and exile. While the articulations of exile have changed over time, it remains relevant today as part of the international political landscape in both its state-sanctioned and self-imposed manifestations. And whereas forced deportations of entire communities clearly breach international law, regional, bilateral, and internal conflicts produce a steady stream of removals. Refugees, fugitives, asylum-seekers, expats, émigrés - the dual artifices of exile and deportation inhabit our lives today in myriad forms.

Historical and contemporary manifestations of exile and deportation constitute aliens/emigrés as illegal and expendable. Today, exile and deportation are situated at the transnational intersection of migration policy and criminal justice. Removal - a common legal euphemism for state-enacted deportation - has emerged as a deceptively benign technique for extricating problematic noncitizens and citizens from national and domestic contexts. The banality of such terms conceals the systemic violence visited on individuals, families, communities, and the very law itself.

Continuing an engaging interdisciplinary analytical tradition begun in 2011, the fourth Conable Conference in International Studies hosted by the Rochester Institute of Technology, will examine the political, social, cultural, economic, philosophical, and geographical dimensions of the intentional employment of deportation and exile in historical, comparative, and contemporary perspective. The conference seeks to understand the uses and implications of exile and deportation as political tools throughout history, the present, and into the future, across the globe. It will focus particularly on the ideological, philosophical, and (il)legal and quasi-legal underpinnings of exile strategies, land dispossession, corporate displacement, and deportation policies, and the consequences of exile and deportation for states, for victims and survivors, and their families, and communities.

The conference encourages scholarly papers on any aspect of the history, present, and future of exile and deportation including (but not limited to):
.         The political, ideological, and philosophical underpinnings of exile.
.         Exile as punishment.
.         Legal genealogies of deportation and exile.
.         Communities of exile.
.         Effects of exile on those left behind.
.         Exile and colonialism.
.         Deportation and communication.
.         Displacement and land dispossession.
.         Experiences of living as an expatriate.
.         Role of corporations and private enterprise in displacement.
.         Returns of exiles/deportees.
.         The right of return.
.         Deportation, exile, and death.

Submission Process:

Abstracts up to 300 words for a paper, presentation, installation, exhibit, or poster, (or multiple abstracts comprising a panel), clearly identifying the argument, method of delivery, evidentiary basis, disciplinary/interdisciplinary nexus, or analytical framework, and site of research, study, or project, five keywords, and a two-page CV/résumé for each presenter/panelist should be submitted online via the submission portal (https://www.rit.edu/cla/conable/abstract-submission) by December 15, 2014.

Accepted proposals will be announced by email and on the Conable Conference website in early 2015. All participants are required to register online. All participants (except RIT faculty, staff, and students) are required to pay the registration fee as confirmation prior to the publication of the final program. Coffee breaks and lunches provided to all registered participants. Participants are responsible for their own travel and accommodation arrangements and costs.
