We invite proposals for papers and panels exploring aspects of the theme ‘power’ in all its historical manifestations. There is no restriction on the nature of power, its chronology or location. We welcome proposals for individual papers and panels that explore the complexities, controversies, and contradictions of power. In particular we are keen to attract international scholars offering comparative studies and papers examining historiographical debates and/or contestations of power in relation to warfare and the state, racial, religious, gendered, class, linguistic and cultural hegemony, symbols and rituals, and visual and architectural expressions of power. We particularly welcome proposals from postgraduate students.
Confirmed speakers include Marshall Sahlins, Jinty Nelson, Joe Bergin, Nicholas Canny, Catriona Crowe, Judith Devlin, Padraig Lenihan
300-word proposals should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org before 15 January 2009. The conference programme will be drawn up by the end of February 2009. General enquiries about the conference can be directed to Ciara Breathnach (email@example.com), Liam Chambers (Liam.Chambers@mic.ul.ie) or Anthony McElligott (Anthony.McElligott@ul.ie).
