The History Graduate Student Association (HGSA) at Stony Brook University is pleased to announce its fourth annual interdisciplinary graduate conference. Graduate students are invited to submit papers and panel proposals on the theme of Decolonial Histories: Imperialism, Resistance, and Liberation. This international conference hopes to focus attention on the experiences and transnational connections of colonialism, decolonial resistance, liberation movements, and related subjects. Each year this event has provided graduate students from across the world with a venue to network, engage with innovative scholarship from multiple disciplines, and receive feedback on their research projects from fellow students as well as established scholars.

This year’s keynote speaker will be Jaskiran Dhillon, Associate Professor of Global Studies and Anthropology at The New School. A leading scholar of the “decolonial turn,” Professor Dhillon’s work spans the fields of colonialism studies, the anthropology of the state, critical Indigenous studies, environmental justice, anti-racist feminism, political ecology, and youth studies. She is the author of Prairie Rising: Indigenous Youth, Decolonization, and the Politics of Intervention (2017) and the coeditor of Standing With Standing Rock: Voices from the #NoDAPL Movement (2019). Her latest research focuses on developing an anticolonial critique of the environmental justice movement by examining Indigenous political movements working against extractivism, including the resistance at Standing Rock.

Paper and panel proposals from all disciplines, regions, and historical periods are welcome. Potential topics of inquiry may include:

  • Imperialism, colonial projects, and decolonial resistance
  • Assimilation and exclusion
  • Forced relocation and removal
  • Nationalism, internationalism, transnationalism, and national indifference
  • Colonial technologies of control in education, health, carceral states, and migration
  • Decolonizing the media, popular culture, counterculture, and public history
  • Settler colonialism
  • Gender, racial, and class conformity
  • Liberation ideologies
  • Racial solidarity and activism
  • Feminist and Queer movements
  • Indigenous movements
  • Linguistic communities
  • Panethnic movements, pan-nationalism, and revolutionary nationalism
  • Third-Worldism
  • Other related topics
