Political History Conference Report (pub. 7/2/2017)

This year’s workshop aims to challenge the early-modern and modern divide in political History, by providing panels on parliaments and political deliberations, on the confrontation with modernity in state and economic change, on war and security and on the language of politics in state and nation building. The keynote address will be delivered by Dr Constanze Sieger of the Westfälische Wilhelms-Universität Münster. The workshop is organized by Alessandro Capone (Sciences Po Paris), Thomas Maineult (Sciences Po Paris), Anne Petterson (Leiden University) and Frederik Frank Sterkenburgh (University of Warwick). The Political History PhD Network was initiated after the launch of the Association for Political History in 2014. It aims to bring together PhD students working on a topic in Political History via its annual workshops, monthly newsletter and LinkedIn group.

The 2016 Conference is sponsored by the EHRC, The Humanities Research Centre and the Department of History at the University of Warwick.
