In recent years, historians have begun to reconsider the lenses through which the past may be viewed, and to restore an emphasis on the breadth of human experience beyond national and statist contexts. In particular, they are increasingly engaged in examining the complex transnational nature of economies, cultures, societies and politics.
The Postgraduate Intensive ‘States of Statelessness’ invites graduate students to reflect on ways of seeing beyond the state and beyond the nation. The remit is broad, and we are interested in students working on the history of migration, movement, mobility, and memory, and in fields including, but not limited to: diplomatic history, international history, economic history, environmental history, gender history, black diaspora history, migration history, histories of empire, human rights, legal history, histories of social movements.
There is no restriction on the regions or periods covered. However, students should be open to a consideration of the broader historiographical implications of their work, and in some way engage with the literature on transnational and or international historiography.
The Conference papers are now available for download.
