The Savage State? Violence in Nationalism and State Building Conference
Saturday, June 8 2013 – Alison Richard Building, SG1, University of Cambridge
Organized by the Violence & Conflict History Graduate Workshop, this one-day, inter-disciplinary graduate symposium aims to bring together scholars from both the UK and abroad to explore the ways in which the language, logic, and practices of violence and conflict have historically shaped conceptions of nationhood and national identity. We welcome papers from current doctoral candidates on a wide range of topics. Small travel subsidies may be available on a first come, first serve basis.
The deadline for submitting paper proposals is 15 March, 2013. Proposals should include a title and an abstract of no more than 300 words, as well as the author’s name, address, telephone number, email address, and institutional affiliation, and should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
