Call for Papers: Culture & International History VII
News vom 26.10.2023
14-16 December 2024, Freie Universität Berlin
The conference Culture and International History VII will be dedicated to the topic of “Uncertain Boundaries.” CIH VII examines how material and immaterial borders and boundaries historically interacted and conditioned one another: How did people “live” borders and boundaries? What caused uncertain boundaries to become accepted norms? What are the theoretical and methodological implications of uncertain boundaries for the writing of international history?
Possible topics include but are not limited to:
- The interplay of material and immaterial boundaries and the uncertainty of the nature/culture divide
- Belonging and kinship in/as spaces of boundary making
- The creation and crossing of boundaries in arts, sciences, technology and in knowledge transfer
- Race, gender, class, (dis)ability, and age in the making and shaking of boundaries in international history
- Theoretical and methodological deliberations on (in)visible borders and boundaries
Proposals should include the title of the paper, an abstract of max. 500 words, and a one -page CV to be submitted in one PDF file. Proposals for panels will also be very welcome (chair/commentator, three panelists). Pending approval, individual speakers who may need financial support for travel and accommodation mention this in their application. Early-career scholars are particularly encouraged to apply. Participants who have an interest in the topic and would like to attend the conference without delivering a paper are welcome as well.
