SOCIAL HISTORY SOCIETY ANNUAL CONFERENCE
with the University of Rouen

Rouen, 8-10 January 2004

marking also the launch of
Cultural and Social History:
the Journal of the Social History Society


CALL FOR PAPERS (en anglais ou en français)



From 2004, the Social History Society will change the format of its annual conference. Instead of a single theme per conference, it is introducing thematic strands running through successive annual conferences. This change will parallel the publication from 2004 of the Society's new journal: Cultural and Social History, and consequently, it is intended that this conference consider issues relating to new directions in social history.

This Call encourages proposals for papers promoting wide-ranging discussions of the present state and future of cultural and social history,reflecting these exciting new developments in the Society's history.

Papers will be considered for publication in Cultural and Social History. Papers are welcomed from scholars interested in reflecting on policy and practice in social and cultural history, including those with backgrounds in cultural studies, history of art and the visual arts, literary studies, law and criminology, anthropology and the social sciences in general.

The six thematic strands are as follows.

For further information please contact the strand organisers:

Cultures and Identities,
(contact Shani D'Cruze:
shani@d-cruze.freeserve.co.uk, Matt Houlbrooke, Andy Wood) exploring interactions in their historical specificity across topics, chronologies and
locations

Self and Society
(contact Lauren Kassell ltk21@cam.ac.uk, Margaret Pelling) exploring the links between communities of various kinds and the individual

Life Courses and Life Cycles
(contact Mary-Clare Martin mc-martin@talk21.com) exploring a range of case studies and wider theoretical issues

Deviance, Inclusion and Exclusion
(contact David Nash dsnash@brookes.ac.uk, Anne Marie Kilday) exploring crime, deviance, radicalism, the law and dissidence, mechanisms for inclusion/exclusion in wide ranging ways

Production and Consumption
(contact Barry Doyle Barry.Doyle@tees.ac.uk, Matthew Hilton) exploring the issues of labour and consumption, from craft work to shopping

Mapping the Past, Boundaries, Communications and Transnational Exchanges
(contact David Hopkin dmh@arts.gla.ac.uk) exploring a range of themes from conflict resolution to the geographies of history

They should consist of title and abstract (around 350 words; 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, if liked) are encouraged, and especially those for panels which would signal engagement between historians working on different historical periods, or for panels exploring links between history and other disciplines.
Suggestions for alternative forums of debate are also invited. There are two submission dates for abstracts. Abstracts submitted by 1 May 2003 will be notified by 15 June 2003; abstracts submitted by 10 September 2003 will be notified in early October.
