Announcement

The SSFH Annual Conference : Cardiff, 30 June to 2 July 2013

Solidarities, entanglements and conflict in French history / ‘Solidarités, conflits, histoires croisées’

Organisers: Siobhan McGurk and Kevin Passmore

Presentation

The conference theme is to be interpreted widely. Its purpose is to explore entanglements, solidarities and conflicts in the most inclusive sense  – transnational, global, local, diplomatic, military, class, gender, religious, status, cultural, imperial,  colonial,  producer, consumer,  chronological,  and more.

Participants may choose to ask how French people reconciled or failed to reconcile involvement innetworks that were smaller than the nation (personal,  family, regional, professional...) with transnational exchanges and crossings (churches, commercial exchanges, ideologies...). They may ask how transnational history looks if we bring conflict into the equation. Another potential area of interest is the role of social movements in French history, the potentially conflicting motivations and objectives of the people who participated in them.  Also welcomed are papers  that ask  how historiographical disputes are entangled with conflicts among the subjects of that historiography.

Confirmed keynote speakers: Todd Shepard (John Hopkins University), Jinty Nelson (King’s College, London) and Fanny Cosandey (EHESS).

Submissions

Proposals are invited for twenty-minute papers (in either English or French) on any aspect of French history from the early medieval to the contemporary period. Proposals for panels of two or three papers that cross chronological and/or geographic boundaries are particularly welcome. Please note that our theme is not exclusive as to subject and we also welcome contributions that reflect the broad diversity of the discipline of French History.

Proposals should consist of a one-page CV and an abstract of not more than 300 words, in a single document, preferably in pdf format. Panel proposals should also consist of a single document.

The deadline for submission of proposals is 10 December 2012.

Proposals should be sent to Siobhan McGurk at frenchhistory2013@cf.ac.uk
