A Call for Papers
Conference Date: 6 May 2017
Location: King’s College London, Strand Campus

Deadline Paper Proposals: ***FEBRUARY 19th***

The call for papers is open to students of all academic disciplines and university levels (undergraduate to doctoral) interested in World History. The conference serves as an opportunity to have your research discussed in an academic environment. Depending on the topics of their submissions, authors of selected papers will be one of three panelists leading a debate on a particular field of World History. Suggested topics for proposals are listed below, but these are not exclusive.

Theory and Methodologies of World/Global History

History of Right-Wing Politics

Transnational Social Movements

International Governing Institutions

Pan-Identities

History of Science and Medicine

Transnational Religion

Commodity History

History of Emotions

Gender Studies

Economic History

Proposals should include a 500 word abstract of the author’s research and a short CV. In the abstract, you should summarise: 1) the topic; 2) arguments and/or a thesis; 3) the relevance to World History (i.e. its transnational value). Please note that we welcome papers from all historical periods. It is not necessary for the paper to be completed for a proposal to be accepted. Accepted proposals will be notified via e-mail by mid-March. The submitted abstracts will then be published on the conference website. After the conference, authors of accepted proposals will have the opportunity to have their final papers published.

The proposal can also be written in Dutch, French, German, Italian and Spanish to facilitate non-fluent English students and should be submitted as a PDF attachment to kclworldhistoryconf@gmail.com. However, at the conference, papers must be presented in English.

If there are any remaining questions, please refer to the FAQ or contact us directly via e-mail.

Good Luck!
