Northumbria University, Newcastle upon Tyne, 8-10 April 2014
The annual Social History Society Conference is the largest gathering of social and cultural historians in the UK. In 2014 the conference will take place at Northumbria University in Newcastle upon Tyne from 8 to 10 April. Proposals for individual papers and panels are warmly invited from new and established researchers in the field.
The conference is organised around seven strands that cover a broad range of topics, themes and approaches. In 2014 we launch the new strand Global and Transnational Approaches. We particularly welcome proposals for papers and panels that focus on the early modern period and that extend social and cultural history beyond Britain. The full list of strands is:
- Deviance, Inclusion and Exclusion
- Economies, Culture and Consumption
- Global and Transnational Approaches
- Life-cycles and Life-styles
- · Narratives, Emotions and the Self
- Political Cultures, Policy and Citizenship
- Spaces and Places
There is a prize for the best postgraduate paper. Conference delegates are also invited to submit their papers for consideration for publication in Cultural & Social History: The Journal of the Social History Society
The deadline for submission of conference abstracts is Thursday 31 October, 2013.
