The Social History Society is delighted to announce that its 2007 conference will be located on the campus of the University of Exeter (south coast, UK, 30 March – 1 April), and will run parallel to that of the Economic History Society. The conference is an opportunity for broad cross-disciplinary exchange and there will be opportunity to engage with delegates at both events. We warmly welcome proposals for papers from scholars in (eg.) cultural studies, history of art, design and visual culture, literary studies, law and criminology, historical geography, anthropology and the social sciences.
Single papers may be proposed, or panels of three papers. Suggestions for forums other than panel sessions are also invited. Panels that signal engagement between historians working on different historical periods, or locations, or explore links between history and other disciplines are strongly encouraged.
This year we are pleased to announce a new thematic strand. ‘Theory and Practice of Cultural and Social History’ is one of six around which the Conference is organised. Full strand descriptions are available on the Society’s web-site where the electronic proposal form may also be found
(http://www.socialhistory.org.uk/index.htm). We aim to notify decisions about acceptance during November. Papers given at the Conference can be considered for publication in the Society’s journal 'Cultural and Social History'.
