CALL FOR PAPERS
Fourth European Congress on World and Global History
Paris, 11-14th September 2014
“Borders and Transnational Peripheral Formation”
The objective of the panel is to investigate how and why national groups and movements have taken different developmental – and in some cases ideological – trajectories when their populations have straddled internationally recognised borders. In effect, this panel will analyse substantial ‘peripheral’ groups that rose under the control of more than one ‘core’ sovereign, under different political, cultural and economic constraints and conditions.
This dynamic has crossed both imperial and national space, involving a disparate range of peoples including Poles and Ukrainians under Habsburg and Russian imperial rule, through to the extant Basque, Assyrian and Kurdish situations, and numerous colonial and post-colonial societies globally.
Abstracts are sought covering any relevant case studies where national groups have formed, reformed or repositioned themselves on different sides of borders.
The panel will also examine the effects of those borders in the development of national identity, community, and 'national' organisations and their strategies. Their effect on 'core' policy, the follow on global consequences, and their legacy will also be examined, as will whether such analyses are of value when examining borders as a contemporary global phenomenon.
100-200 words. As this is a World and Global History conference, topics must have a substantial historical grounding, although multi-disciplinary approaches, as well as approaches that carry analysis of particular case studies to the present day, are encouraged.
This panel has been provisionally accepted by the ENIUGH Congress Committee, on the condition that the full list of panel participants, and respective abstracts, is received by September 2013. The ENUIGH Congress Committee will approve final selection of papers.
