‘Without Let or Hindrance’: Inclusion and its Subversion from the Medieval to the Modern
A conference organised by the Department of History, Lancaster University, UK, 7 – 9 July, 2006.
How have distinctions between inclusion and exclusion, between insider and outsider, been articulated and subverted during the past millennium? Papers are invited which interrogate the histories of social, political and cultural regimes of recognition, inclusion and exclusion.
Panels are being constituted regardless of historical period and geopolitical specificity. Themes presently include:
• Bodies: sexuality and deviance
• Beliefs: conversion, secularism and multi-culturalism
• Aesthetics and Materialities: enclosures and marking of boundaries; humans, things and differentiation
• Security: from political institutions to regimes of insurance
• Culture: ethnicity, citizenship and nationality
Papers presented at the conference will be considered for inclusion in a special issue of the Journal of Historical Sociology (Blackwell, Oxford) to be published in November 2007.
Abstracts of 250-300 words should be sent to Dr. Deborah Sutton at the address below by 31 March, 2006.
