CFP: Blood and Mortar: The Experience of Violence and its Aftermaths in History

Conference: 11th Annual History Graduate Student Association Conference
Place: University of Maryland, College Park, Maryland, United States
Date: March 4, 2016
Submission deadline for proposals: December 15, 2015
»Violence, as we seek to define it here, need not be physical, nor must it only involve human actors: rather, we encourage submissions dealing with violence and its aftermaths as enveloped within a broad continuum of qualifications across history: physical, rhetorical, discursive, structural, spontaneous, religious, sexual, ecological, economic—the list goes on. We are especially interested in papers dealing with the intersection of urban history and violence: for instance, in what ways has violence–whether state, private, ecological, economic, or other forms–been constructive and destructive of urban life? How does urban life both constrict and expand the possibilities of violence in human and animal life? Beyond urban history, we encourage submissions dealing with all facets of violence in history, and hope to form panels that will reflect more specific themes–such as religion and violence, ecology and violence, and so on.
We welcome submissions from all sub-disciplines of history, as well as from graduate students working on history-related topics elsewhere in the humanities and social sciences. Since we aim for a genuine interdisciplinary dialogue about this topic, we strongly encourage graduate students from non-history disciplines to apply. We encourage submissions dealing with any period or place, from ancient to modern, America to East Asia and everywhere in between.«
