We invite proposals for papers exploring aspects of the general theme of empires and their contested pasts. There is no restriction on chronology, location, or type of empire. Comparative studies and papers examining historiographical debates and/or contestations of race, religion, gender, class, and culture will be welcomed. We particularly invite proposals from postgraduate students.
The conference will be held at Queen's University Belfast, 18-20 May 2007. It is preceded by the 2007 Wiles Lectures on 15–18 May, when Professor Christopher Bayly will speak on ‘Empire and liberalism: India and beyond’. Our aim is to build upon the Wiles themes and to explore the complexities, controversies, and contradictions of empires and history more broadly.
300-word proposals should be sent to Dr Robert Blyth (email@example.com), before 31 December 2006.
