Second Call for Papers
Mobility in French History
French Historical Studies
The Editors of French Historical Studies are soliciting articles for a special issue on the theme of Mobility in French History. Papers are welcome on research subjects from any periodmedieval to modernand drawing on a variety of disciplinary perspectives. The editors hope that the issue will consider all aspects of the theme from the demographic and the social to the economic, political and cultural. Two concerns animate and guide this special issue:
1) an interest in examining the relationship between internal and external exchanges of peoples, goods and meanings, and
2) an interest in interrogating the relationships between different levels of movement and exchange, from the movement of peoples (geographical and social) to the movement of capital and cultural goods. The editors are particularly interested in papers exploring historiographical debates and questions of periodization; and questions of identity and allegiance. Considering Francein its broadest, geographic context (in light of recent work on Francophonie and colonial and post-colonial studies), how does the insistence on mobility transform the terms for understanding French identity, beyond the simple opposition of essentialistand constructivist? Embedded in movement, how do identities, and especially national identity, take shape, as both a logic of circumstance and as a logic of elective affinityreligious, geographic, social, economic, political or cultural?
Although it is assumed that many, if not most, contributions will focus on specific periods or specific forms of mobility articles that cross chronological, geographic and methodological boundaries will be welcome. Guest editors Carla Hesse and Peter Sahlins welcome inquiries about potential submissions. In accordance with the guidelines of French Historical Studies articles can be submitted in both English and French.
Inquiries should be addressed to:
