Union and Disunion in the Nineteenth Century
Plymouth University, Plymouth, Devon, PL4 8AA
June 22-23, 2017
PUNCS (Plymouth University Nineteenth Century Studies) invites proposals for 20-minute papers for a proposed international, interdisciplinary conference on 22-23 June 2017 on the general theme of union and disunion. The first international conference hosted by PUNCS began on the day of the Brexit vote, and commentators have seen this event in the context of other signs of anti-globalisation, and in a landscape of violent disintegrations or forcible integrations in the twenty-first century. PUNCS are interested in papers by scholars working in British, continental European, American and world history in the nineteenth century: in literary studies, history, legal history, art history, economic history, geography and other disciplines.
Possible themes for exploring union in individual papers or panels include:
Proposals for papers (maximum 300 word abstract and a brief c.v.) should be sent to: firstname.lastname@example.org by 28 November 2016. For more information, please visit https://plymouthuniversitynineteenthcenturystudies.wordpress.com/2016/08/10/union-and-disunion-in-the-nineteenth-century/.
