Call for Papers: Comparative Studies in South Asia, Africa, and the Middle East
Call for Papers Deadline:
Comparative Studies of South Asia, Africa and the Middle East (CSSAAME)
Call for papers for a special issue on the occasion of the Centennial of the Iranian Constitutional Revolution
Editors: Houri Berberian and Mohamad Tavakoli-Targhi
On the occasion of the centennial of the Iranian Constitutional Revolution, CSSAAME solicits historiographical essays that explore competing narratives of the Revolution and their divergent conceptions of the "nation," subjectivity, agency, the past, and the future. Particularly encouraged are critical inquiries that advance the historiography of the revolution and contribute to its analytical reconceptualization. We are especially interested in essays that link the social, cultural, and intellectual histories of the Revolution and those that explore the transformation of public and private spheres and their corresponding modes of collective and personal self-presentation. As a temporal designation, how did the comprehension of the Revolution shape memories of the past and expectations for the future? As a marker of political modernity, how was the Revolution deployed by competing political, religious, and ideological forces for legitimacy and mass-mobilization? In addition, review-essays examining studies of the Constitutional Revolution in Persian, English, French, German, Russian, Turkish, and Armenian are welcome.
Please submit abstracts of no more than 1,000 words by 6 December 2002 to: Houri Berberian by electronic mail or by postal mail.
