CfP: History as an Instrument of Contemporary International Conflicts

CfP: History as an Instrument of Contemporary International Conflicts

Deadline: 15 July

Events from the past, most often related to wars, violence and violation of rights of some social groups by others, are sometimes used in present times as an instrument of international conflicts. By looking at contemporary international relations one may get the impression that the number of conflicts in which a specific historical narrative is employed has been increasing. Accordingly, the convenors of this conference are convinced that by raising this subject-matter one has to resort to methods and acquis of a number of disciplines like political sciences, history, international relations, sociology, social anthropology, social psychology etc.

You are kindly requested to send in abstracts up to 300 words in English as well as a short biographical sketch to the conference organisers.

Deadline for submission: 15 July 2018

The conference will take place in Cracow (Poland), 25-27 October 2018.
