Call for Papers | ‘Layers and Connections of the Political’ | Rome, 11-13 June 2020

For its 2020 conference (11-13 June 2020 – Luiss-Guido Carli University, Rome), the Association for Political History invites proposals for panels by senior researchers and PhD candidates. Deadline is 31 January 2020.

Politics has changed a lot, in the last half-century – and so has political history. The boundaries of the political have been redrawn. The large social and political bodies of the mid-twentieth century have grown weaker or have dissolved. Public institutions have become both less insulated from society and less effective in controlling and guiding it. Therefore, defining what is political has become more difficult. Political historians have confronted this challenge, and in the process have gained a deeper understanding of their object of study, have enlarged their scope and refined their methodologies, and have entered into closer dialogue with the “other” histories and the social sciences.
