CfP: The Franco-Prussian War of 1870-1871: A European Turning-Point?

Mon, 2020-07-06 12:59

University of Strathclyde, Glasgow, 16 April 2021

The Franco-Prussian War of 1870-1871 is widely acknowledged to have been a cause of intense political, social and cultural conflict, a shaping element in modern French and German nationalism, and a significant factor in international tensions prior to 1914. The 150th anniversary in 2020-21 therefore provides an opportunity to re-evaluate the impact of the Franco-Prussian War as a turning-point for Europe.

CfP: Troubled Pasts and Memory Politics: Contesting Hegemonic Narratives in North America, Europe and Eurasia

Mon, 2020-07-06 12:07

What we remember about the past is as crucial as why we remember and for what we remember. Remembering occurs in specific cultural and political formats through which the past is invoked as a means to various, and often incompatible, ends. At the same time, the multifarious commemorative practices of the past have a presentist dimension, referring to the fact that social and cultural construction of memory narratives is co-constituted by the prerequisites and imminences of the present.

CfP: Sources and methods for the study of economic inequality in preindustrial societies: The Iberian Peninsula (1300-1600)

Mon, 2020-07-06 11:55

During the last years we have witnessed a renewed interest in wealth distribution and inequality in pre-industrial societies. The economic crisis and the subsequent rise in social differences that has occurred over the last decades has been one of the main reasons why historians and economists have retaken the analysis of this phenomenon. Due to the richness of the preserved documentary sources in the Iberian Peninsula, the study of inequality and its origins has been studied also in the medieval period, being tax sources particularly useful.
