Dear colleagues,

The Latin America Network of the European Social Science History Conference welcomes proposals for participation in the 2018 conference in Belfast. The ESSHC Latin America Network brings together scholars working on all aspects of the region's history and of its historical relations with other parts of the world. It is open to, and indeed encourages, inter and multidisciplinary perspectives and comparative approaches to the study of one of world's most diverse and fascinating regions. Please note that while the conference is European, the history discussed there is not, and this conference has in the past involved considerable and productive discussion of topics in Latin American history.

For more information about the conference please see:

https://esshc.socialhistory.org

We welcome proposals for either organized sessions or individual papers for the conference. Where you propose an organized session, please try to include panelists from different universities and if possible working on different countries, which enhances the comparative dimension of the discussion.

ESSHC places priority on having an active discussion of the papers in each panel. If you are proposing a panel, please ensure that you leave time for a general discussion in addition to having an assigned discussant.

The official language of the conference is English, and proposals in other languages will not be accepted.

How to propose a paper or a session:

1) Please, consult the latest guidelines at:

http://esshc.socialhistory.org/guidelines

2) Please fill out the pre-registration form on the ESSHC web-site:

http://esshc.socialhistory.org/esshc-user/pre-registration

and include a 500-word abstract of your paper. Each person proposing a paper, even as part of a session proposal, has to register individually.

Please submit your proposal as soon as possible, and no later than 1 May 2017. Unfortunately, proposals submitted after the deadline of 1 May 2017 cannot be considered.

 

Regards,

Kim Clark (akc@uwo.ca) and Paulo Drinot (paulo.drinot@ucl.ac.uk)
