CFP: KCL World History Student Conference
Submission deadline: March 1, 2018
May 5, 2018
Department of History, King's College London
London, United Kingdom
The call for papers is open to students of all academic disciplines and university levels (undergraduate to doctoral) interested in World History. The conference serves as an opportunity to have your research discussed in an academic environment. Depending on the topics of their submissions, authors of selected papers will be one of three panelists leading a debate on a particular field of World History. This year the conference theme is ‘Activism, Identity, Conflict’. Suggested topics for proposals are listed below, but these are not exclusive.
- Theory and Methodologies of World/Global History
- Transnational Social Movements
- Marginalized Groups
- Boundaries and formation of nation-states
Proposals should include a 500 word abstract of the author’s research and a short CV. In the abstract, you should summarise: 1) the topic; 2) arguments and/or a thesis; 3) the relevance to World History (i.e. its transnational value). Please note that we welcome papers from all historical periods. It is not necessary for the paper to be completed for a proposal to be accepted. Accepted proposals will be notified via e-mail by mid-March. The submitted abstracts will then be published on the conference website. After the conference, authors of accepted proposals will have the opportunity to have their final papers published.
The proposal must be written in English as the papers will be presented in English and should be submitted as a PDF attachment to firstname.lastname@example.org.
