CFP: Performing Ethnicity

Performing Ethnicity, a conference marking the centennial of the St.Louis World’s Exposition, will take place October 15-17, 2004 at City College of the City, University of New York. The conference examines how the St. Louis World’s Fair represented racial and ethnic categories and what impact it has made. “Performing Ethnicity” seeks papers from diverse disciplines, including performance, visual, media and cultural studies, anthropology, political science, etc., in an effort to bring together scholars, artists and writers from diverse ethnic communities and cultures. The deadline to submit abstracts is April 30. The conference will coincide with a two-week arts festival.
