Call for papers: A century in motion, An interdisciplinary Postgraduate Conference
How did the rapid period of industrialisation in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries help to shape societies and lifestyles in the West? What types of social changes, movements and developments characterise this time period? This interdisciplinary postgraduate conference, in affiliation with the Centre for the Study of Cultural Modernity and hosted by the College of Arts and Law, seeks to explore the various ways in which this century was one of ‘motion’, in every sense of the word.
Abstracts of 250-300 words for 20 minute papers along with a short biographical note of no more than 50 words should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org by 17th May 2013. For a list of potential topics that papers might cover, see the full Call for Papers on our website: http://pgculturalmodernity.wordpress.com
