‘Self, Society and History’: A Cultural History Workshop
18-19 June 2010
The Centre for Cultural History at the University of Aberdeen invites individual and panel proposals for a workshop entitled ‘Self, Society and History’ to be held between the 18-19 June 2010. The workshop organizers seek proposals from members of the humanities and social sciences whose research sheds new light on questions of human subjectivity, social identity and power from the eighteenth century to the present.
The workshop organizers are particularly interested in attracting a broad cross-section of historical and theoretical approaches to subjectivity, social identity and power. These approaches may include the historical, sociological, or anthropological application of social psychology, post-structuralism, symbolic interactionism, Foucauldian analysis, psychoanalysis, neuroscience, postmodernism, articulation theory, and studies of individual memory and the collective historical consciousness.
Panel proposals (60 minutes with up to 3 speakers) should include a panel title, title and 200 word abstract for each individual paper, and a short CV from each panel presenter.
Individual submissions should include a paper title, 200 word abstract and a short CV.
All proposals must be received by 31 October 2009.
Please direct all enquiries and proposals to Dr Gregory Smithers at: firstname.lastname@example.org
