North American In/Securities: A Local-Global Nexus

October 1-2, 2015, University of Turku, Finland

The John Morton Center for North American Studies invites proposals for
previously unpublished papers for a two-day symposium, “North American
In/Securities: A Local-Global Nexus,” to be held at the University of Turku on
October 1-2, 2015. The symposium seeks to bring together scholars, activists,
and artists to discuss 21st century security concerns in the United States,
Canada, and Mexico, and their global implications. We are particularly
interested in three tensions that characterize contemporary security concerns:
1) national security vs. human security, 2) policy measures vs. grassroots
activism, and 3) scholarly discourses vs. artistic interventions. Underscoring
the multiple scales at which security issues are explicated, experienced, and
represented, the symposium points to their far-reaching geographic, political,
socioeconomic, military, and cultural ramifications.

Topics for presentations may include, among others:

·        border in/security

·        contemporary urban uprisings

·        criminal/terrorist insurgencies

·        drug wars in public space

·        trans/national drone wars

·        para/military strategies

·        grassroots activism

·        visual interventions

Please email abstracts of 250 words for 20-minute presentations, together with a
max. 150-word bio, including name, institutional affiliation and position, phone
number, and email address to jmc at utu.fi. The deadline for abstracts is April 30,
2015. Participants will receive notifications of acceptance by May 15, 2015. For
