CFP: Social History Society Conference 2018
Submission deadline: February 2, 2018
June 11, 2018 - June 13, 2018
Keele, United Kingdom
The annual Social History Society Conference is the largest gathering of social and cultural historians in the UK. Over more than four decades, our members have transformed historical research, inspired challenging work and explored the many ways in which our social worlds are made, imagined, shared and shattered.
The next SHS conference will be hosted by Keele University on 11-13 June 2018. It will feature a special plenary roundtable on History & Diversity with Dr Jonathan Saha and others, as well as a keynote lecture from Professor Keith Wrighton of Yale University.
The conference will see the first SHS Book Prize awarded, as well as the winners announced for the best postgraduate paper and poster. There will also be opportunities to meet the editors of both our journal Cultural & Social History and our New Directions in Social and Cultural History book series with Bloomsbury.
Proposals for panels, individual papers and research posters are warmly invited from new and established historians, covering (pre)medieval, early modern, modern and contemporary research, from the local to the global, to address one or more of our conference strands:
- Social Action, Social Justice & Humanitarianism
- Diversity, Minorities & "Others"
- Self, Senses & Emotions
- Global, Local & Transnational
- Politics, Policy & Citizenship
- Deviance, Inclusion & Exclusion
- Life Cycles, Families & Communities
- Economies, Cultures & Consumption
The deadline for submissions is Friday 2 February 2018.
