CFP: CULTURE NETWORK OF THE EUROPEAN SOCIAL SCIENCE HISTORY CONFERENCE 2014

Call for Papers / Call for Session Organisers

CULTURE NETWORK OF THE EUROPEAN SOCIAL SCIENCE HISTORY CONFERENCE 2014

Call for Papers / Call for Session Organisers

The European Social Science History Conference (ESSHC)is applauded for its open and interdisciplinary character. The Culture Network welcomes all papers on topics in cultural history, but we especially encourage workshops on: visual culture; media; tourism; architecture and town planning; photography in historical research; cultural
diversity and border culture; death culture; collective memory politics; Cold War culture; and utopian visions.

The Culture Network, one of the larger networks within the European Social Science History Conference, invites you to offer a proposal for a paper or a session for the 2014 Conference.

The ESSHC will take place from April 23 up to and including April 26, 2014 in Vienna, Austria. This is an open call. One is free to suggest any theme for the 2014 Conference as long as it relates to cultural history in its broadest sense. Papers stand a better chance of
being selected if they fit together with other papers, and
the best way to ensure this is to organise a session, or a
group of sessions. If someone wishes to do so it will be
wise to discuss your proposal beforehand with the Chairs
of the Culture Network:
Marga Altena, University of Amsterdam, Arts and History Department, NL
MargaAltena@hotmail.com
Magdalena Elchinova, New Bulgarian University,Department of Anthropology melchinova@hotmail.com
Joes Segal, Utrecht University, Department of History, NL
j.segal@uu.nl

How to propose a paper:
Fill out the pre]registration form on the Internet:
http://esshc.socialhistory.org/

Include an abstract of your paper (250]500 words). Please send in your form as soon as possible, but before May 15, 2013 at the latest. No individual may present more than one paper. However, every participant can act as a chair or commentator in addition to presenting a paper. A participant cannot act as chair or commentator in the same session he/she is presenting a paper.

How to organise a session:
gather four speakers who each will present a paper on a related topic, a chair, and a commentator who will introduce the discussion with a prepared comment on the papers. The roles of the session organiser, chair and commentator can be fulfilled by the same or by different persons.

Confirm participation and arrange with these individuals the (date of) exchange of papers and the way the session will be conducted. If possible, have one or more substitute speakers at hand in case of withdrawal of one of the speakers. Submit the proposal for a session with a pre]registration form for each individual speaker. The deadline for this is May 15, 2013, but please send your form as early as possible. Contact the speakers regularly to make sure that the preparation is going according to plan.
