Call for Submissions
Deadline: July 10th, 2017
In recent years, global history has become one of the most ambitious and promising strands of historical research. The approach targets relations, flows, and actors that challenge the assumption of the nation state as a natural and inevitable category of historical analysis. It calls attention to the importance of transnational, trans-regional, or trans-local connections and their influence on the past.
Our upcoming international Global History Student Conference 2017 on May 20 th -21 st acts as the point of departure for this issue, showcasing how global history is conceptualized and realized in different cultural contexts around the world. To that end, we encourage the submission of research articles related to (or critical of) global history. We suggest the following themes, which represent this year's conference panels, as a starting point for your consideration:
Commodities in Transfer
Microhistory from a Global Perspective
Medicine and Disease
Diplomacy and International Relations
Media and Representation
Identities in Diaspora
International Social and Political Movements
We also welcome the submission of history conference reviews. Please review a history conference which you have attended in the last year, focussing on how the conference was intellectually conceptualized and how it related to wider trends within the discipline of history.
