The Centre for the Cultural History of War (Manchester University) in conjunction with the European Review of History/ Revue Europeenne d'histoire invite proposals for a multidisciplinary conference on the history of state violence, the cultural responses it has evoked, and humanity's response to cultures of violence. Our objective is a genuine hisotoricisation of state violence that counters the tendancy to treat twentieth-century practices as a prism through which to interpret organised violence in previous centuries. We are seeking to open a series of dialogues: between established and younger scholars, between historians from North America and their counterparts in Europe, between historians of the ancient, mediaeval and modern world, and between history and other disciplines.
Conference date: 15-17 April 2004.
Confirmed speakers: Jay Winter (Yale), Jacques Semelin (Directuer de recherches au CADIS/EHESS), Hans van Wees (UCL), Ido de Haan (Amsterdam)
Please submit 500 word proposals by 15 January 2004. Please include a CV with your proposal. Individual papers should last 20 minutes. Papers will be published on the Centre for the Cultural History of War's website and may be selected for a 'special edition' of the European Review of History/Revue europeenne d'histoire.
Further details can be downloaded from the Department of History, University of Manchester's internet homepage.
