Cultures and Sub-Cultures: Rethinking Histories of Culture
Publié le jeudi 07 septembre 2000 par Marin Dacos
This conference will provide a forum for debate on all aspects of culture in societies of all periods and any regions. The key focus will be the concept of 'culture' as a perspective on the ways in which people have lived in, and understood, their social worlds. The past decade has seen an explosion of interest in histories of culture. As historians display a renewed interest in developments in related disciplines such as literary studies, the visual arts, anthropology, history of science, cultural studies, sociology and philosophy, the organisers see this as a timely opportunity for scholars to debate historiographical and methodological issues, as well as providing a forum for examining particular case studies. 'Culture' is thus to be broadly interpreted and it is the hope that this conference will foster theoretical diversity, signalled by the choice of histories in the title. Proposals debating cultures and sub-cultures, cultural locations, the 'popular' and the 'unpopular' or vilified cultures are thus invited. Other themes might include: cultures of work, training or education; cultures of youth or age; the engagement with postmodernism; religions and rituals in cultures; culture, myth and memory; cultures of enjoyment; femininities and/or masculinities and culture; 'unpopular' or vilified cultures.
Proposals are invited for papers in any historical context, period or culture. These should consist of title and abstract (of around 350 words, and no more than a side of A4). Proposals from postgraduate students are particularly welcomed. Submission of sessions or panels of three related papers (plus chair) are encouraged, and especially those for panels which would signal engagement between historians working on discrete historical periods or cultures, or for panels exploring links between history and other disciplines, such as sociology, literary studies, anthropology, history of science or cultural studies.
Abstracts should be sent to: Mrs. Linda Persson, Administrative Secretary, Social History Society, Furness College, Lancaster University, Bailrigg, Lancaster, LA1 4YG (Tel: 01524-592605, Fax: 01524 846102; Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
