Consuls and consular services in the nineteenth century (1800-1914)
The triumph of an institution
Call for Papers Deadline:
If the history of the consular services of certain countries, or certain consulates has already been written, no comparative study for the institution exists for the XIXth century. For the early-modern period, the first elements of an analysis appear in a work, published in September 2006 (Jörg Ulbert / Gérard Le Bouëdec (éd.), La fonction consulaire à l’époque moderne, Presses Universitaires de Rennes), containing studies of the French consular services, along with contributions dealing with the United States, Austria, Prussia, the Hanseatic ports and the Scandinavian countries. This new volume will go further into the subjects studied in the first work, bringing together papers about the French consular system and that of as many other countries as possible. It would be preferable, whenever possible, for papers dealing with systems other than that of France, to concentrate on a general presentation of the service concerned. They should follow the same structure; a presentation of the structures and the development of the network, the recruitment and the careers of the consular agents along with their prerogatives, attributions and remuneration, their relationships with their tutelary organisations and the results of their work.
Contributions will be published in French, but can be submitted in English, German or Spanish (translation will be carried out by the publishers). Papers should be 50,000 signs in length including spaces. Proposals should be sent before 31st December 2006 to: Jörg ULBERT, UFR de Lettres, Sciences Humaines et Sociales, Université de Bretagne-Sud, 4 rue Jean-Zay, BP 92116, 56321 Lorient Cédex; Or by e-mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
