  • Call for Papers (PDF)
  • Student Travel Claim Form (PDF) — Deadline: Nov 30, 2015
  • Final Schedule (PDF) — updated 2015-10-30
  • Travel information:
  • Plenary Speaker: John Krige, “Regulating the transnational flow of knowledge in research universities today: The role of the U.S. national security state after 9/11”
    • The free circulation of knowledge across borders in academia has been progressively eroded since the 1980s by new opportunities to commercialize research and, since 9/11, by the demand for tighter control on foreign nationals by the national security state.  The production of knowledge that is increasingly both dual use and close to the market, and the insertion of research universities in the global knowledge economy, has transformed the research encounter between the U.S. researchers and their colleagues and students from abroad.  Two concepts of security — security by achievement and security by secrecy —  pit traditional academic values of openness and the free exchange of ideas against an increasingly intrusive state apparatus that shackles scientific collaboration and undermines trust.
    • John Krige is Kranzberg Professor in the School of History and Sociology at the Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta.
