Twenty years after the I Conference of Researchers on Francoism (November 1992), that was also held in Barcelona, it is appropriate to assess the growth and evolution of the period's historiography and to evaluate as well the Conferences themselves –which have become a consolidated forum among the researchers.
The Conferences intend to promote the historiographic debate about the Francoist dictatorship and its era. On this occasion, the VIII Conference proposes to incorporate into the debate a comparative approach that takes into account other dictatorships and other societies. Thus, the VIII Conference aims to become the suitable forum for the presentation of unpublished researches and for further advances in the line of placing the history of Francoism in the international context.
The Conference will consist of three sessions where simultaneous workshops will be organized in order to discuss the papers and their related subject matters.
The sessions' structure will pivot on the historiographic debate around the subject matters introduced by the papers. The papers will be assigned by the scientific committee to the specific sessions. Deadlines for submission of proposals and final papers are as follows:
-Proposals: September 15th, 2012.
-The proposals should include the following informations: full name of the submitter, field of study or profession, work or research center, telephone number, email address, title of the paper and a brief summary of its contents (maximum 200 words); the summary should particularly refer to: hypothesis, methodology, techniques and sources to be used. Notification of acceptance of the received proposals will be communicated by November 30th, 2012 at the latest.
-Papers: April 30th, 2013. The text should be submitted in digital format as a Word file, and should not exceed 10,000 words including notes. The papers can contain plots, tables and images.
