Building Dialogues in Americas

Americanist scholarship is marked by a vibrant diversity of ontological, epistemological, and methodological questions. Since its inception, Americanists have gathered at ICA meetings to discuss empirical and normative scholarship, liberal and conservative politics, positivist and post-positivist perspectives, as well as activists and theoretical approaches, among other things. While these specializations often have been artificially separated, we aim to facilitate sharing of insights, questions, methods and viewpoints that could foster dynamic dialogues.

We want to promote self-reflection and encourage trans-disciplinary dialogues. Henceforth, we invite proposals for symposia that emphasize conjunctions between disciplines, subfields, theories and methods.
