A major international conference on Boycotts - Past and Present, conceived by the International Consortium for Research on Antisemitism and Racism (ICRAR), and hosted by the Pears Institute for the study of Antisemitism, Birkbeck, University of London, will be held on 20-21 June 2013.
This conference seeks to investigate the ways that different boycott movements have contested or expressed power relations, mobilized support and attempted to achieve their goals. It also aims to explore the political, ethical and legal debates that have been attached to boycott movements.
Proposals are welcome for papers on boycott campaigns and movements from historians of all periods and continents as well as from social scientists, legal scholars, philosophers and other academics whose focus is on the present.
Paper proposals of 200-300 words, together with a brief CV, should be sent to ICRAR@bbk.ac.uk by 3 December 2012.
The call for papers can be found here: http://www.pearsinstitute.bbk.ac.uk/research/research-collaboration/research-collaboration-2/
