The 'Deviance, Inclusion and Exclusion' strand of the Social history Conference would like to invite proposals for single papers and entire panels for the 2004 Social History Society
Annual Conference, Rouen, 7-9 January 2004, (with the University of Rouen)
This meeting will also mark the launch of 'Cultural and Social History: the Journal of the Social History Society'
Papers from scholars working the areas outlined below are welcome and a founding principle of the strand is to encourage the work of both new and established scholars.
Deviance, Inclusion and Exclusion aims to investigate how societies include and exclude individuals, institutions, concepts, ideas, laws, beliefs and values etc. This includes the study of the mechanisms by which these are constructed (e.g. norms/discourses, species of identity, systems of classification, notions of (un)acceptability, modes of regulation, discipline, policing) and how forms of dissidence from these are portrayed, adopted and discussed. Ideologies, cultures and practices of inclusion, exclusion and resistance to such cultures and practices are also a cogent area in which the strand seeks to encourage work.
Papers in the follwing areas are especially welcome:
Crime, Legal contexts, Witchcraft, Social pariahs, Juvenile delinquency, Punishment, Religion/Anti-Religion, Moral commentators/code – etiquette/manners, Policing, Identity – dialect, Nationality, Republicanism, Race, Ethnicity, Sexuality, Gender, Political opinion, Family, Childhood, Poverty and welfare, Disease, The body, Cultural divisions, Wealth and status
We would like this strand to represent the totality of work undertaken in the areas of crime, deviance, radicalism, the law and dissidence in as wide ranging a way as possible.
Those interested in presenting papers should contact the address below.
Please also see the general call for papers associated with the conference at our website.
