Zur Abwechslung einmal, weil besonders spannend, ein CfP von jenseits der Grenzen des deutschsprachigen Raumes: Vom 3. bis 4. Juni findet in London die vierte „London Graduate Conference in the History of Political Thought“ statt, mit James Tully und Malcolm Schofield als Keynote Speakers und Quentin Skinner und Richard Bourke als Chairs. Bewerben zum Thema „Global Order and Disorder in the History of Political Thought“ kann man sich bis zum 31. Januar; alles Weitere nach dem Klick.
In the context of contemporary debates surrounding globalization and global governance, this conference will investigate the historical underpinnings of conceptions of global order. From the classical to the modern age, travel, exploration, military expansion and commerce have contributed to the emergence of international and transnational perspectives on politics. The focus of this conference will be on the way in which these developments have led to the transcending of political boundaries in a way that still reverberates in modern debates.
Proposals for papers and panels may wish to consider some of the following themes:
• Global governance, cosmopolitanism and global citizenship
• International law and transnational institutions
• Global conflict, interventionism and pacifism
• Empire and colonialism
• Exploration, travel and global encounters
• Migration, multiculturalism and diversity
• Cartography and visual representations of the global
• Federalism and devolution
• Capitalism, markets and technology
• Global commons and environmentalism
• Religion, church and state
• Internationalism and radicalism
• Human rights discourses
• Transnational social movements
We invite proposals from a diversity of fields that deal with the themes of global order and disorder in a historical perspective, including the history of political thought, political theory, geography, anthropology, international relations, philosophy, literary studies, classics and other related fields. Participants will have the opportunity to publish their papers in our online, peer-reviewed publication, the Journal of Intellectual History and Political Thought.
To submit a paper, please email a CV and proposal of max. 500 words for presentations of approximately 20 minutes to conference@historyofpoliticalt
