Abstract [en]

Crisis, Divisions, Agency

Current political challenges such as the growing appeal of populism; nostalgia for, and

politically-inflected reframing of, national pasts; the reluctance to help refugees; the

normalization of public hate speech; and the highly ambiguous role of social media in

politics have all shifted public and scholarly attention to long-held concepts of

democracy and democratic values. Perceived crises in these values have resulted in

deep divisions, both generating and inhibiting various forms of political agency.

This climate of crisis has drawn researchers into public debate to provide context and

expert interpretations of an often complex reality. As historians, we seek especially to

understand the roots of current political phenomena from a longue durée perspective:

to conceptualize their origins and search the historical substrata for both lines of

continuity and also discontinuities between the past and contemporary political life.

For ESSHC 2020, we welcome proposals for papers and sessions that engage with the

themes of crisis, divisions and agency, or other topics in political history, in any

historical period or geographical context. Possible topics include but are not limited to:

• States of emergency

• Scandal, controversy, cause célèbre

• Institutional hiatus: constitutionalism, governance and administration in times of

crisis

• Parliamentarism and parliamentary cultures in flux

• Citizenship in non-democratic regimes

• Belonging, agency, recognition: cultural, familial and sexual citizenship in history

• Indigenous, diasporic, imperial and postcolonial citizenship: historical

perspectives on identity, law, and loyalty/ies

• Documenting citizenship: records, certificates and statelessness

• The art of the deal: historicizing the corridors of power

• Onstage and backstage: charisma, negotiation, patronage

• Shifting margins: outlaws, outcasts and dissidents

• Performing diplomacy: (inter)nationalism, activism, personalism

• The politics of human rights and humanitarian aid

• Religion and politics/religion in politics/the politics of religion

• Left or Right, conservative, liberal or progressive? Semantic shifts in politics

• “Neo-isms”, old and new: historicizing ideology

• Spreading the word: agency, media and politics

• Technology and politics/the politics of technology

• Gender, sex and politics: the politicization of sexuality/ies and gender

• Educating the citizen: civic belonging, equality, history

• (Re-)framing national pasts: politics, culture, nostalgia

• Rethinking chronology: challenging the narratives of the winners

Comparative panels and papers are particularly welcome, and we gladly co-sponsor

sessions with other networks. In addition to traditional panels (chair, discussant and 3-4

presentations) we encourage proposals for workshops, roundtables, Meet-the-author

sessions, book launches, and alternative session formats. We value diversity both in the

focus of panels (themes, geographical and chronological scope, methodology, etc.) and

in their social composition (participants’ national and academic affiliation, gender,

career stage, etc.). Thus we may reorganize or reject proposals for sessions composed

of participants from the same university or from a single country presenting papers on

that country. Priority will be given to papers and panels presenting research that has

not been previously published. We welcome interdisciplinary approaches to the past,

but all papers and sessions must demonstrate a clear historical focus.

The deadline to submit your proposal and pre-register on the conference website is 15

April 2019. To guarantee consideration of full session proposals, please ensure that all

participants send in their abstracts and pre-register by the deadline, indicating the

name of the session to which their paper belongs. Because we receive many more

submissions than we can accommodate, the Politics network cannot guarantee

consideration of proposals for more than two sessions on a single theme.

For general information on the ESSHC, proposal submission and pre-registration online

please go to the ESSHC Conference website or contact the Conference secretariat

(esshc@iisg.nl). Otherwise, contact us (arepstein@outlook.com,

josereissantos@gmail.com, izabela.dahl007@gmail.com or ikosnica@pravo.hr) to

discuss your session ideas.

We look forward to receiving your proposals.
