The Graduate Workshop in World History invites papers from postgraduate students on the theme of "Responses to Empire in World History" for our termly workshop to be held on 5 March 2008.
The theme of the half day workshop ties into the broader themes which the workshop is focusing on this term: globalisation, interconnectedness and interactions between local culture and global politics, and the role of empires as a catalyst for these changes. Historiographically, we are also focusing on the genres of ‘global history’ and ‘popular history’ as a focus for our discussions.
As such, we are interested in papers which broadly tie in with these themes or ideas. This can include, but is not limited to, papers on political, economic, social, cultural history, or historiographical studies. Apart from this, there is no limit on the time period or scope of the paper.
The Graduate Workshop in World History is a postgraduate seminar held at the Modern History Faculty, University of Oxford, UK, and aims to be a forum for the free exchange of ideas between postgraduate students. We strongly encourage submissions from postgraduate students at any stage of their studies. We regret travel grants are not available.
Please submit a short abstract of no more than 300 words to P.J. Thum at firstname.lastname@example.org by February 20, 2008. Please include your name, institutional affiliation, e-mail address and other contact information.
