CALL FOR PAPERS
The aim of the conference is to bring together a range of postgraduate perspectives on cultural history from across the disciplinary spectrum. The focus will be on unusual topics or unconventional approaches to otherwise familiar topics. For instance, papers might deal with cultural practices that have been neglected by traditional history, or engage with emerging fields, trends or themes that may have been overlooked by existing scholarship. We would especially welcome papers that reflect on the challenges of dealing with discipline-specific responses to the way in which you approach your topic, or the particular advantages or limitations of taking on an unusual topic.
We invite all interested contributors to submit proposals for 20 minute papers. Please send a 200 word abstract, including your name, designation, institutional affiliation and thesis title (if applicable) to email@example.com no later than Saturday 4 April 2009.
