The Centre for Metropolitan History invites individual and panel proposals for a two-day conference on ‘Cities and Nationalisms’, to be held at the Institute of Historical Research, London on 17-18 June 2010.
Possible themes might include how festivals and parades, or the built environment, or literary and visual accounts of the city, have promoted or maintained nationalisms. Another possible theme would be how senses of urban community or territoriality interacted with nationalisms, ‘ethno-nationalisms’ or ‘loyalism’ in cities as a whole, parts of cities, or in divided cities.
Particularly welcome would be papers or panels that investigate the relationship between cities and nationalisms for hitherto under-explored places and periods. This might be for provincial or colonial cities, or for cities of Asia, Africa or Latin America, or for European capital cities outside the period of high imperialism. But all proposals that address the broad theme of the conference will be considered. The full call for papers is available at: http://www.history.ac.uk/events/conferences/941.
Panel (three speakers) proposals should include a panel title, paper titles and 200 word abstracts for each paper, and a short CV for each panel presenter. Individual submissions should include a paper title, 200 word abstract and a short CV.
Proposals should be submitted by 30 November 2009 by email to Professor Vivian Bickford-Smith (Vivian.Bickford@sas.ac.uk)
