Résumé

This conference will address issues related to the transnational dynamics of political culture, political parties, non-governmental organisations, and political ideas in the industrialised world since World War One in a comparative perspective, with particular attention to Europe and North America.

Annonce

Historians have recently become increasingly aware of the extent to
which political parties and organisations shared political ideas and
experience in an age of rapid industrial and technological change.
Although much work has been done on national political cultures and
political parties, only in the last decade has much attention been
paid to the connections between the national and international
dimensions of the political process and of political ideas. From the
relationship between different socialist parties after World War One
to the impact of national politics on the processes of European
integration to the impact of welfare state building in Europe on
American liberal politics after World War Two, attention to
transnational aspects of political change in the twentieth century is
yielding new insights into the workings of the state in the modern
world. This conference will address issues related to the
transnational dynamics of political culture, political parties,
non-governmental organisations, and political ideas in the
industrialised world since World War One in a comparative perspective,
with particular attention to Europe and North America.

We welcome paper proposals on any aspect of transnational political
relationships of the kind described above.

Please send proposals of no more than 300 words, together with your
name, professional affiliation, and brief biographical summary to the
conference organisers by email attachment.

The [recently postponed] deadline for proposals is 31 March 2007.

Professor Kenneth Morgan (Brunel), Dr Anne Deighton (Oxford), Dr Axel
Schäfer (Keele)
