Third European Congress on World and Global History
14-17 April 2011, London School of Economics & Political Science
THEME: CONNECTIONS AND COMPARISONS
Recent decades have seen the re-emergence and, on an unprecedented scale, the further development of various interacting strands of world, global and trans-national history, all sharing the aim of transcending national historiographies. Connections and comparisons have been central to these intellectual enterprises. The third European Congress on World and Global History, to be held in London at the LSE in April 2011, provides an opportunity for sustained reflection on these themes.
Following an excellent response to our earlier Call for Panels, we now cordially invite paper proposals for examining comparisons, connections and entanglements between polities, societies, communities and individuals situated in, or spanning, different regions of the world. The programme of the congress now consists of over 90 panels. However, we look forward to paper proposals that fill slots in existing panels and perhaps gaps in the intellectual range of the programme as it stands. We particularly welcome proposals for papers addressing the following topics:
- Pre-1500 Trans-Regional Connections and Comparisons (including, but not limited to, trade, ‘world’ religions, empires, migration, cultural transfers and ‘world systems’)
- Colonial Taxation in Global Perspective
- Comparing Property Rights in Peasant Societies
- The Spread of Bourgeois Ideology and its Relations to Economic Change – NEW
- Hidden Winners of Colonialism: Involvement of European Hinterland in Overseas Colonialism
- Popularization of Knowledge through History, Literature and Philosophy
- Second World War Labour Policies and Wartime Labour History
- The European Semi-periphery in Recent Writings on Early Modern Global History
- Discourses of ‘Zero Hours’ and New Beginnings
- Maritime Law of Warfare and its Impact on Creation of International Law & Early Globalization
- Transformation of Aristocracy in the 19th Century: Global Perspectives
- Representation of Post-Colonial States in International Organisations
- The Invention of the Electronic Telegraph and Technological Globalization
- The History of Area Studies in the Soviet Union and beyond in Comparative Perspective
- Pension Provision & Governance: Global Perspectives
- Speculative Philosophy of History and Research on World History
- Concepts and Methodologies of World and Global History
Other topics may be suggested as well but acceptance will depend upon available space in the programme.
Proposals: We invite proposals for papers not only from scholars in various disciplines, based both in Europe and around the world. In addition to the name, affiliation, email and snailmail address proposals should include the title of the paper and an abstract (100 words).
All LSE meeting rooms have Powerpoint facilities. When the time comes, it is hoped that all papers will be posted in advance on the congress webpage. Conference languages will be English, French and German.
Submission: all proposals must be received by 31 July 2010.
They should be submitted as email attachments to Katja Naumann at:
