Call for Papers: "Making Networks, Making History/Construire des réseaux, faire l'histoire." The 7th annual McGill-Queen’s Graduate Conference in History to be held 12 & 13 March 2010 at McGill University in Montréal, Québec.
The concept of “networks” has recently come to be seen as a crucial axiom for developing ideas in a wide range of historical scholarship. This concept has been especially important in a number of historical sub-disciplines, including, but not limited to: the history of the book/printing history; the development of publics and the public sphere in early modern Europe; the constitution and negotiation of political authority in any number of historical periods and contexts; the history of women; the transmission of knowledge in the history of science and medicine; the history of diplomacy and political culture; the history of international trade and commerce; transnational or global history; and the history of colonialism and empire.
The McGill-Queen’s Conference Committee invites graduate students at all stages to submit paper proposals for the March 2010 conference, “Making Networks , Making History//Construire des réseaux, faire l’histoire” by Friday January 15, 2010. Paper proposals related to the aforementioned topics or any other field of historical scholarship related to the conference theme will be considered. Proposals for individual papers or panels of up to four participants will be considered, but are not required. Individual proposals should contain: one’s affiliation, a title for the paper that will be included in the conference programme, and a description of up to 250 words. Panel proposals should contain a short (one paragraph) description of the panel accompanied by information (up to 250 words) on each paper. Papers en Français and in English are both welcome and encouraged.
Deadline: Friday January 15, 2010
Successful applicants will be notified shortly after the final paper deadline in order to confirm their participation in the conference.
