The Annual SAGGSA Graduate Student Conference (Steven J. Green School of International & Public Affairs)


The Department of Global and Sociocultural Studies’ Graduate Student Association (SAGGSA) at Florida International University invites you to participate in our 8th Annual Graduate Student Conference.

Violence and Identity: From the exceptional to the everyday

March 1, 2019
Florida International University
Miami, FL

Keynote Speaker: Deborah A. Thomas is the R. Jean Brownlee Professor of Anthropology in the Department of Anthropology at the University of Pennsylvania. She has been interested in the afterlives of imperialism, in what new forms of community, subjectivity and expectation are produced by violence, and in how these are expressed and mapped.

Each year the Sociology, Anthropology, Geography, Graduate Student Association (SAGGSA) at Florida International University hosts an interdisciplinary conference around an overarching theme that speaks to current issues and debates in anthropology, geography and sociology. This conference is intended to provide a supportive and collaborative forum for interested graduate students to present original research and engage with other graduates and faculty researching similar topics from a variety of disciplinary perspectives. As such, we welcome and encourage presentations on research in any stage, formative or finished. This year we invite papers that critically engage with violence and identity, broadly defined.

Violence and identity are inextricably linked to the complex histories of colonialism, development, and power. Structures of violence are complex, they are embedded in our social world constraining individuals’ agencies in many ways. Following key questions raised by Thomas’ work, we invite participants to consider questions such as: How does violence circulate across communities? How are violence and identity formation linked to histories of colonialism and underdevelopment? How is identity and the embodiment of citizenship linked? This conference provides a forum for participants to explore these histories of identities and manifestations of violence, broadly defined. Potential topics may include, but are not limited to: migration, religion, race, gender, sexual orientation, minorities, decolonization, indigenous peoples, environmental activists, direct violence, indirect/slow violence, and complex histories of identity formation. Potential topics may include, but are not limited to, broad themes such as:

• Politics, Identity and Violence o Security and environmental change o Environmental activists and social movements o Globalization, Neoliberalism and structural inequalities, Transnational Crime • The persistence of structural violence o Race and structural violence o Militarization of police and police brutality o Colonialism and neocolonialism o Management of “risky” or vulnerable populations o Slow disaster, slow violence and slow emergency • Theories and methodologies for studying violence and identity o Development, dependency theories o Gendered perspectives o Indigenous knowledge and technologies o Migration, political theories o Flexible citizenship • Violence – direct and indirect o State, structural, or systemic violence o Gang violence o Violence and ethics o Humanism and violence o Violence and: gender, partition, linguistics, psychology, capital, politics, the digital age, and resistance o Resistance or Violence?

Abstracts should be submitted via the conference website by January 15, 2019. Please limit abstracts to 250 words. Accepted participants will be notified within a week following the deadline. Accepted papers will be organized topically by the conference organizing committee. .

Any questions can be directed to Jacquelyn J Johnston (
