AccueilLondon Politics, 1789-1914
Publié le lundi 07 octobre 2002 par Natalie Petiteau
A Conference to be held at Institute of Historical Research, London, Saturday 28 June 2003
In recent years the history of London has flourished. Yet, whilst cultural, spatial and geographical readings of the capital abound, the politics of nineteenth-century London remain largely uncharted territory.
This conference seeks to redress the deficiency. We invite proposals for papers which attempt to reassess the historical peculiarities of metropolitan politics and explore the broader culture of poltiical life in the capital.
The Conference embraces a period during which formal changes to the political system were matched by the growth of party organisations and the emergence of an increasingly literate and disciplined electorate. In what ways did London act as a site for concerns about the moral health and political stability of the nation, as a place of social ferment where physical and ideological threats to the established order endlessly recurred, and as a space where the co-existence of extremes of poverty and opulence provided the opportunity for new forms of politics and electioneering?
What, in short, were the dynamics of grass-roots politics in the capital city of the world's largest empire?
Proposals for papers on any topic are welcomed, including:
The impact of parliamentary reform
The growth of Party
The City and Politics
The Metropolitan Politics of Empire
Metropolitan Feminist Politics
Race and Politics in London
Foreign Perceptions of London Political Life
