The 6th Austrian Contemporary History Conference is being hosted by the University of Salzburg’s Department of History. This year’s theme is “Art – Communication – Power.”
This call for papers is addressed to all interested historians as well as to scholars in the social sciences, in the arts and in the field of cultural studies. The organizers especially encourage younger scholars to submit papers.
Whenever possible, proposals should be submitted as complete panels. We respectfully request that you keep gender parity in mind when forming your panel. We also welcome papers from individual scholars; the organizers will form panels for the presentation of these papers. Each panel will be allocated 60 minutes plus 30 minutes for discussion. In addition to papers and panel proposals, we very much look forward to receiving proposals for presentations with relevance to contemporary history that utilize audiovisual media. Such proposals should include complete information about the technical infrastructure they require.
Your proposals should contain the following information:
For complete panels:
Title of the panel
three panel members with their respective topics (15 minutes each)
abstracts of the planned addresses
For individual addresses (15 minutes each):
abstract of the planned address
In addition to an encounter with the general theme “Art – Communication – Power,” the 2003 Contemporary History Conference is also meant to be a forum for the presentation of current research projects on contemporary Austrian history. We welcome the submission of papers (15 minutes maximum) as well as poster and video presentations.
