Oxford TGHS Postgraduate Conference Call for Papers:
Encounters and Exchanges in a Global Past
The Oxford Transnational and Global History SeminarLink opens in a new window is inviting submissions for a postgraduate conference, Saturday 25 June, 2022. The conference will be held in person in the Oxford History Faculty.
We welcome submissions on the theme 'Encounters and Exchanges in a Global Past.' We will explore the ways in which encounters and exchanges were experienced in the near and distant past. Despite the recent proliferation of frameworks for understanding contact and the exchange of goods, ideas and biota that accompanied it, contact is rarely considered from a truly global perspective that spans millennia, continents and disciplines.
We welcome interdisciplinary submissions relating to exchanges across time and space. We are particularly interested in submissions on:the infrastructure that underlay encounters and exchanges, such as technology and ideology; multi-scalar interaction; the role of translation in contact; the environmental history of encounters and exchanges.
Sessions will consist of 20 minute papers with time for questions and discussion.
Interested postgraduates should send a 400-word abstract and brief biography to email@example.com
Submission deadline: 1 May 2022
