Université du Québec à Montréal
The Conference "Political Mobilization and Citizen Engagement in Canada", sponsored by the Canadian Historical Association-affiliated Political History Group, promises to provide glimpses of various ongoing research projects in political history. Proposals should be received by Wednesday, 30 April 2014 and should be sent to Stéphane Savard, Committee Chair, at the following address: firstname.lastname@example.org .
The organizing committee of this conference seeks papers on the following topics in the Canadian context. Papers that compare Canada with other societies are also most welcome:
Pressure groups/lobby groups
Social movements and their relationship with the state and political rulers
The political activism of particular individuals
Particular events that have mobilized citizens in large numbers
Transformations in political cultures
The evolution of participatory democracy
Political ideas and discourses
The transformation of the state and its apparatus
This list of potential topics is not exhaustive: the organizing committee is open to proposals that deal with other topics linked to political history in general or to the history of the state and its institutions in particular. Epistemological and historiographical reflections on political history are also most welcome.
