The Graduate Workshop in World History invites papers from postgraduate students on the theme of "Popular Movements in World History" for our termly workshop to be held on 3 December 2008.
2009 will see the 50th anniversary of the Cuban Revolution. The workshop will take that anniversary as a starting point to look more broadly at popular movements throughout world history. These can range from the social, cultural, ideological and religious aspects of political mobilisation, to broader themes examining concepts such as democracy, liberty, or justice and their role in revolutions. We are particularly interested in papers which focus on trans-national and cross-border movements.
There is no limit on the time period or scope of the paper. Paper presentations should last no longer than 20 minutes.
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 M. Ali Raza at firstname.lastname@example.org by November 15, 2008. Please include your name, institutional affiliation, e-mail address and other contact information.
