Curves of Time: Trajectories, History and Memory
Call for Papers Date:
This issue of Conserveries mémorielles will conduct an interdisciplinary consideration on the notion of trajectory. Considering the trajectory in its various applications, we are accepting texts that relate spatial, social and intellectual trajectories of individuals, communities, symbols or ideas. We will also welcome contributions that consider the notion of trajectory itself.
We consider this issue to be a worksite, where texts that consider the concept of trajectory will rub shoulders with empirical studies and methodological perspectives. Therefore, several research topics can be proposed. The following list serves only as suggestions and is not intended to be in any way exhaustive:
• Definition(s) of trajectory;
• Studies of trajectories;
• Biography, memoir, autobiography: literary forms of writing about life;
• Archives and personal writings, offsetting and complementing sources of a trajectory;
• Imagined trajectories, real trajectories: the intersections between fiction and reality in narrative;
• What role does personal trajectory play in the process of literary creation or scientific work?
• What is the contribution of the concept of trajectory to the field of history (biography, prosopography, microhistory, etc.)?
• How is the notion related to the heritage making? (Living heritage)
With this vast subject we are looking to attract proposals from multiple horizons that will emphasize the plurality of this notion. We hope this issue will reflect its objective and be marked by intersections, fractures, movement and heterogeneity.
Please send us a 300 words proposal before January 30th 2011 at: conserveries[dot]trajectoires[at]gmail[dot]com. Proposals should explain the subject of the article, its problematic and hypothesis. Along with the proposal, send us a short biography including your field of interest. Make sure to identify your supervisor and the research center you work in.
Accepted articles will have to be completed before April 30th 2011. They will then be submitted to evaluation by an anonymous reader.
